Since the beginning of the Digital Revolution in the 1950s, a number of technological advancements have occurred in modern society. Companies like Owens Industries have played crucial parts in supplying micromachining services to establishments from every field of expertise, helping contribute to the further development of research and lifesaving technologies. Micromachining, in the traditional sense, is the precise milling and manufacturing of extremely small parts and products. These components can be cut down to one thousandth of a millimeter, helping make the production of tiny parts more efficient and realistic. Also known as micro/meso-scale mechanical manufacturing (M4 processes), micromachining creates products one by one, helping to establish consistency with dimensions between parts. If you want access to predictable and controlled turnaround times and quality surface finishes, contact Owens Industries today for more information regarding how micromachining can help save your company time and money.
With the rise in computer capabilities, telecommunications, and the internet, the demand for micromachining services is growing in popularity across the world, the technology industry taking a special interest. If the device is not shrinking in size, the components making it work are continuously becoming smaller for better performance and higher efficiency. The latest music devices, phones, and computers are only a few examples of machines requiring micro components CNC machined to the highest precision possible. Advancements in the medical, fiber optic, and satellite industries are requiring Micromachining Companies across the world to improve their capabilities in precision. Owens Industries is ahead of the industry trend, offering ultra-precision micromachining services for the last six decades.
Numerous industries are eagerly following the trend of utilizing miniature parts in their product applications - including electronic tooling, medical parts, component energy-driven motors, fluidic circuits, and particle filters just to name a few. The extreme attention to detail, dedication to precision and high level of expertise garnered in our employees is what sets Owens apart from other machine shops, making our reputable services highly sought after across a multitude of industries, including:
Businesses choosing Owens as their Micromachining Shop accomplish the impossible through our latest technology in CNC micro machining services, Photolithography, and Micro/Meso-Mechanical Manufacturing.
As technological advancements continue across the globe, the demand for micro precision components grows right alongside it. Not all CNC Machining Companies have the equipment, experience, or expertise to get the job done right. Don’t waste your time and money trying out several machine shops and getting the same results. Choose Owens Industries for precision machined components with measurable results and repeatable accuracy.
We offer Micro Machining of components, using conventional CNC Milling, super precision turning, sink EDM and wire EDM processes. Many components can be produced with micro machining, a number of examples from different industries include:
The medical field:
Count on Owens Industries if your medical products require micron metal parts to perform safely and accurately. We pride ourselves on quality control and producing the highest precision miniature parts achievable. Between our environment controlled facility, state-of-the-art machining equipment, and highly knowledgeable and skilled CNC engineers and programmers, there is little our Machine Shop cannot accomplish. Whether you are looking to improve your products and cut costs with a more capable machine shop than the one you are using, or have a new product and need reliable machinists to complete your manufacturing process, call on Owens. From innovative prototyping to medium and large productions, Owens does it all using multi-axis milling and electrical discharge machining.
The aerospace field:
Owens’ precision micro machining services produce flawless components with proficient technology and impeccable output, every time. One of our popular services, Micro Precision Swiss Turning, is similar to CNC lathing. It’s a process used to build better cylindrical parts, providing faster and more accurate results. It also allows alterations to the machined part, using milling, drilling, and turning. With services like Micro Precision Swiss Turning available, Owens’ micromachining is the answer for nearly impossible demands.
Small and unusual shapes, such as gears or other micron parts requiring detailed intricacies, need a different type of micro precision machinery; Sink/Plunge EDM. Complex shapes are formed through erosion, caused by a spark between the part being machined and the custom designed electrode of the sinker EDM center.
Well-known Sinker EDM machined materials include:
Whether you’ve reached a point of full production needs or are still prototyping, Owens Industries has the services and capabilities to provide precision micromachining for any parts or assemblies you need. Our line of work has included parts and components from many industries, reflecting the unmatched versatility we possess when creating custom parts for our clients.
We offer EDM Micro Machining using state of the art Wire EDM and Sink EDM Machines. Our Wire EDM is capable of .001” diameter cutting wire, offering extremely fine EDM Micro Machining options. In order to achieve true micro machining with EDM, our EDM Machines have 0.1 micron resolution glass scales.
Our Sink/Plunge EDM is also specifically designed for Micro EDM Machining. We are able to produce the finest plunge patterns on our Wire EDM Machines.
Problem Parts? Impossible Components? In a Hurry? We are happy to help!
When your company needs the smallest components manufactured with the tightest tolerances, CNC Swiss machining lathes are the way to go. The most precise milling can’t be achieved with just any type of machine – the Tornos SwissNano at Owens Industries’ Wisconsin facility has unique cutting and drilling capabilities which are precise to the millimeter. With this technology, we can make a wide variety of components to meet the demand of any industry.
We can manufacture the tiniest components to your exact specifications, meaning you’ll always know what you’re going to get with your micro machined parts from Owens Industries. Some of the industries we use Swiss machining for include:
Our Swiss machining services provide businesses with the best CNC precision parts made to their exact specifications. When you need reliable Swiss machined components made by the best CNC experts in the country, contact Owens Industries today to learn more.
While most Machine Shops in the United States offer 3 or 4 axis milling services, Owens Industries brings more to the table with advanced 5 axis machining capabilities. Our 5 axis micro milling centers were manufactured by leading German and Swiss CNC machine engineers, and specially calibrated to achieve the highest precision results. To improve the performance of our milling equipment even further, our facility is temperature and dust controlled. We know achieving repeatable accuracy on precision components requires full control of all machining factors. Several elements play a major role in developing a flawless micromachining environment, including the effects of fluids in micro cutting, vibrations from micro drilling, and component handling. Owens ensures all elements of our micromachining process are carefully calculated and executed for incredible product results.
If other CNC machine shops cannot handle your micromachining needs, give Owens a call. Our high level of experience paired with highly accurate CNC machines make Owens uniquely qualified to achieve what normal machine shops find impossible. To manufacture complex components with the highest accuracy, we use Wire EDM machines (capable of achieving micron positional accuracies), 5 Axis Machining Centers, and as required, the tools/plunge patterns for our In house EDM Sink operations.
