Benefits of Precision Engineering

Precision ProductsThe creation of products with high precision is given great importance and focus these days. This has resulted to the application of high precision processes and sophistication of professions, skills and machinery in the production of various products.

Precision Engineering is among the sophisticated professions necessary to produce products with accuracy. It is that profession that takes on the arduous task of looking into details, fabrication and measurement to ensure that the output will exactly meet the requirements of the buyers. Precision Engineers follow systematic approaches which allow them identify errors in measurements that could result to inaccurate products.

Precise measurement is not a new thing.  Its importance has been evolving and developing during the past centuries and now, more than ever, is given focus. Here are some of the notable factors that the market may enjoy from this specific science:

Lesser production time. A portion of the market requires customized items that must be produced under a limited time frame.  Highly specialized machine and computing devices are widely use in such production. Thus, the pacing of production is significantly shortened.

Production of small CNC components. Conventional machines have limitation when it comes to the production of CNC components.  These machines do not have the capability to produce smaller CNC components. On the other hand, machineries use in the precision production can process tiny components that other machines could not.

Eliminate human error.  While human is considered the most important asset of every organization; they, unfortunately, are common cause of errors in the production.  In Precision Engineering, the human factors are used as controllers and thinkers. Machines do the jobs for them thus eliminating errors in the production. As a result, wastages and unnecessary cost are relatively avoided.

In the production of specialized items like bolts, nuts and others; this method has proved to be beneficial. Sunyi Precision Engineering, with our experience and advanced machines, is able to manufacture these parts at higher efficiency and more cost-effective.


Cheap Fasteners Quality Issues


In the purchase of any other products, including fasteners, the budget is of great consideration.  But, giving too much focus on price matters could lead to sacrificing the quality of the product one is buying. Low quality products are unacceptable and this must be given careful thought in every purchase most especially if the customer looks for custom-made fasteners, bolts or any other item.

By going for quality rather than price, buyers would not only save themselves from spending time complaining to the suppliers. Most importantly, they will be able to save themselves from the problems that come along with buying cheaper products and possible headaches just to end up obtaining new fastener from another manufacturer.

Just to give an overview, the following are some of the mostly complained issues buyers have to deal with upon buying cheap fasteners:

Shorter life-span. Durability is among the major qualities of high- quality fasteners whether they are generic or custom-made. Such products that are bought for fewer bucks usually lack this because their manufacturers are not obliged to meet the expected life span for such. Generally, their objective is to meet the price expectations thus using lower quality of materials.

Product failure. Products that are bought cheaper for prices usually satisfy the wallets of many BUT NOT for a long-time. Sooner or later, the product will fail to perform its function or use thus obliging buyers to either march back to their suppliers for a replacement or buy new fasteners.

Problem with installation. High-grade fasteners come with comprehensive installation instructions.  Lately, these instructions are even backed up by online video demos to make it even easier for the clients to install. Those that are bought cheaper, although not all of them, lack the necessary instructions on how to properly install the items. Because of this, buyers end up getting annoyed or in some case – installing the fasteners wrongly.  In a much worse scenario, they even break the items which only lead to buying new ones thus incurring unexpected expenses.

While there are fasteners available for much cheaper prices, they usually lack the standard of quality that other manufacturers are proud of. Quality often comes with price and buyers must be prepared to pay that. Anyway, items bought at certain prices are still good deals if buyers would rate them in terms of durability, strength, functionality and other factors relevant to fasteners.

Of course, there are still companies that manufacture fasteners at reasonable prices and could still compete with quality. But, in order to find them, buyers must spend considerable time looking at their history including portfolio and years of experience in the business.

Understanding Qualities of a Custom Fastener Manufacturer

Deciding to acquire and investing in custom fasteners is also deciding for the right vendor or supplier.  This is because of the greater possibility of ensuring high quality products which also accounts for durability of the products. While other manufacturer may offer cheaper prices, problems regarding product quality are often encountered. It has been a problem encountered by many.


Another problem that many have experienced is the ability of the manufacturers to meet the deadline of the buyers. Custom fasteners are generally made out of scratch and the completion of the products depends on the designs and other requirements of the clients. So, if there is one basic quality that such manufacturer should then that is the ability to complete the products on time regardless of the uniqueness or complexity of the requirements.

Some other qualities that buyers must look for from a custom fastener manufacturer are:

Capability to provide prototypes. The decision to order special types of fasteners are not easily figured out based on the graphical presentation of the items.  Taking decisions based on the pictures and explanations of the manufacturers often make buyers regret in the end. The safest is to have a manufacturer that can produce prototypes so as to be sure that the designs and the standards of the buyers are really met. As an advantage, buyers can avoid possible cost of reproduction or modification of the items.

Varieties. There are manufacturers that could actually produce various designs of custom fasteners. Such manufacturers have, for their production, necessary machinery and equipment to produce numerous customized designs of fasteners. The advantage for this is that they can provide you options and suggestions for the completion of the products.

Effective customer services. The services that manufacturers can offer to their clients do not end with the conclusions of the sales. The after sales services are as important as the other services that they to the client during the buying process.  Quality manufacturers generally have better customer services covering all phases of the transaction including the after sales.

As a conclusion, buyers should not be fooled by cheaper prices that other manufacturers offer. They must set certain criteria in selecting the right supplier or producer of custom made fastener.

Difference of CNC Milling and CNC Turning Machines

Custom machine shops offer notable benefits to businesses and individuals. The skills of its craftsmen that make fabricated replacement parts and customized designs more available as well as performing repair and maintenance on different pieces for equipment and machines of all types.

For a more automated process there is the CNC or Computer Numerical Control which make lathes, drill presses and screw machines automated. These tools are widely used in the machining processes which make metal cutting more accurate and precise. Through CNC milling and CNC turning, patterns and details to metal components which are generally impossible by hand are made possible.

So, what is CNC milling and CNC turning? How are they different?

CNC Milling

CNC milling makes use of commands which are also known as G-codes. These codes are programmed into the machine through a computer software program. Every code commands the machine to perform specific function. Upon encoding of these programs, the mill drills and turns along axes to modify the metal components matching the dimensions encoded in the computer.

In terms of operation, CNC milling machines maybe controlled by either manual override or computer. By manual override, the machine operator has to either slow down or speed up or if needed- tweak the process. Through computer program, the machine cuts the metal components with higher precision.  Products that are processes using CNC milling machines include fixtures, valves, linkages, pulleys and arms. In many times, these parts are used to replace the plastic parts originally made by manufacturers and not only for repair but for durability, too.

CNC Turning

CNC turning is another popular process in automated machine processes. It involves computer-controlled machines that produce different end product. It also uses a single-point cutting tool inserted in a parallel manner to the component or material that will be modified. The material is then rotated in a varying speed and the tool traverses the 2 motion axis to make cylindrical cuts with precise depths and diameters.

This process is use on external materials to produce tubes like decorative brass shoulder bolt or even nautical drive shaft. Of course, it can also be use on the inside of the material to make tubular cavity.

As with milling, CNC turning is now automated which benefit many by allowing the production of parts or designs that are not easily made in manual manner. Certain requirements and skills are required from those who intend to work for this industry.
