Thin Wall, Close Tolerance Machining
Skild Manufacturing specializes in close tolerance machining to 50 millionths of an inch (.0013mm) on customer-designed parts that require tightly controlled dimensional and geometric tolerances – such as flatness, perpendicularity, roundness, run-out, parallelism, etc. – when measured in the “Free State” (unrestrained). We are particularly good at parts with thin wall sections that need these tight free state requirements.
Difficult To Machine Materials
Stainless Steels (440C, 410, 416, 347, 316, 304, 17-4, 15-5, and 13-8, A286)
Inconel, Invar™, AM355 and Kovar
Alloy Steel, CPM10V, Tool Steel
Manganese Bronze & Brass
6061 and 7075 Aluminum
Hard Turning, Grinding, Lapping
Because these operations generally are near the end of the manufacturing process, lack of quality control could be costly in terms of money and time lost. Skild Machining, Inc.-unlike many of our competition who farm out their grinding to outside suppliers-does all of our own grinding, honing, and lapping in house.
Skild Manufacturing does hard turning on applications when the process is more cost effective than traditional grinding.
Critical Surface Finish Applications
Skild Manufacturing has the knowledge, experience and equipment to produce micro finishes as fine as 2 micro inches with flatness to 2 helium light bands.
We do super finishing of diameters, bores, shoulders and faces of parts that require demanding critical sealing and mating surfaces.
We also do “Match Grinding” of metering components, such as high performance valves, spools and sleeves that require specific diametrical clearances.
