Swiss Machining of a Stainless Steel Valve Stem for a Gas Regulator
A regulator manufacturer was in need of Swiss machining of a stainless steel valve stem. The valve stem was to be used within a gas regulator and needed to be produced on a rush basis. We worked closely with the customer on all aspects of design, tooling was ordered, and production scheduled all within two days.
Production processes included rough and finish turning, threading, knurling, grooving, drilling, and boring. The part was made of 303 stainless steel, and measured 1.470” long, with an O.D. of Ø.375”, and tolerances of ±.001”.
Within seven working days of the original order, we produced and delivered 11,000 pieces to our client in South Carolina. We made deliveries of 2,000-3,000 per batch to keep the customer’s assembly line up and running, while ensuring they met their deadline. They were thrilled with the product and our turnaround time.
