Latest machining news from the milling and turning teams at Ultra
Ultra Precision recently completed the machining of twelve of these discs. The set comprised six off left and right hand versions. Initially within our turning department they were machined on one of our 3 chucking CNC lathes, before transferring to our CNC milling department, which comprises 12 CNC mills.
The part features 2 millimetre wide 'O' ring grooves in stainless steel 316, as well as a variety of milled features including blind tapped holes and pockets.
Our prototype and tooling department then produced a fixture so that the parts could be held on one of our three rotary axis and then had the grooves milled around the outside.
