Multi Spindle Screw Machine Component: Kynar Fitting
A customer in the water purification industry was in need of a precision specialty fitting that would hold up in a very corrosive environment. The material selected for this part was kynar, a thermoplastic in the fluoropolymer family; used in applications requiring the high strength, and resistance to solvents, and acids. Screw Machine Specialties precision Multi Spindle Screw Machine services produced the part to the customer's specifications, which required the use of a multi spindle screw machine.
The fitting measured 1.938" in length, with an O.D. of .750", and I.D. of .160", and required tolerances of +.000"/-.003", at ±1/2. Quality process included CMM dimensional measurements and balancing to 8,000 rpm. The total run of this kynar end fitting was 425,000 finished pieces.
