Micromachining Components for Optical Slip Ring Assemblies

Precision Machine Shop for the Optical IndustryCNC Machining for Microscopes

When normal machine shops can’t accomplish the high precision cuts you need for your products, Owens Industries is your best choice. We have unmatched CNC machining capabilities, including 5 axis work, EDM, and micromachining services – we achieve tolerances other machine shops never can. Just ask our Everett, Washington client, who needed slip ring assemblies commissioned. Each individual assembly require 35 custom machined parts – utilizing several materials including:

  • Aluminum
  • Teflon
  • Oilite
  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Stainless Steel

Along with these demands, the design engineer made each part interchangeable with the other parts for over 100 assemblies. Their initial supplier had made 25 assemblies total, which worked but were not interchangeable amongst each other.

Owens met the challenge head on. The complexity of this component required half of one part to connect exactly with half of another part. Because of the cut width, only one half of each part was viable. The other half was thrown out as un-usable. When the client saw our finished assembly featuring the interchangeable parts, he was thrilled. We completed all 100 assemblies and he continues to be a loyal customer and close friend.
Finding success in the CNC machine service business isn’t easy unless you are honestly offering every option you can to your clients. Many companies offer 3 axis and 4 axis milling services, but here at Owens we always provide the best. Owens Industries has every CNC machine service needed in today’s day and age, including:
