Capabilities
           
   Your choices are...         
   Drilling       Suppliers have equipment for drilling holes into parts. 
   Milling       Milling machines are versatile devices that can perform many different machining operations. Parts are moved into a rotating cutter which remains fixed in space. 
   Turning       Turning is performed on a lathe. Lathes are used to perform several operations, almost all of which involve the rotation of the piece part. The piece part is made to rotate while a cutting tool, held in a holder, is moved into the rotating piece part. Some of the operations that can be performed on a lathe include: facing, turning, boring, cutting a taper, and thread cutting.  
   Centerless Grinding       Centerless grinding is a machining operation in which an abrasive wheel grinds metal from a bar surface while a regulating wheel forces the bar against the grinding wheel. The term "centerless" indicates that the bar is not placed between any centering devices, but is supported by a blade (situated between the grinding wheel and regulating wheel) and a series of input and output rollers. 
   Creep Feed Grinding       Creep feed grinding is a type of plunge grinding that uses specialized grinding equipment. The grinding wheel is fed into the work at very slow infeed rates. The total amount of stock removed is achieved in only one or two passes as opposed to multiple passes. 
   Double-disc Grinding       Disc grinding is used to produce flat, parallel parts in high-volume production. Machines with two independent grinding wheels are called double-disc grinders. With double-disc grinding, the work passes between the faces of the two grinding wheels.  Single-disc grinders exist, but are less common than double-disc devices. In a single-disc machine, the grinding wheel is usually mounted to a vertical spindle.  
   ID / Internal Grinding       Internal grinding or ID grinding uses a small, high-speed grinding wheel and is used to grind the inner diameter (ID) or holes or surfaces. 
   OD / External Grinding       External grinding or outer diameter (OD) grinding is used to grind the external or outside part surfaces of cylindrical parts.  
   Jig Grinding       Jig grinding uses very precise machines for locating and generating very accurate holes, contours, and surfaces to tolerances of .0001" or less.  Jig grinders are similar to jig borers, but use high-speed spindles and grinding wheels instead of boring tools. 
   Surface Grinding       Surface grinders are used to produce flat and parallel surfaces.  The work is mounted to a table and fed back and forth under the grinding wheel. Typically, the grinding wheel is mounted to a horizontal spindle and the work is ground with the outside diameter (OD) of the wheel. 
   Etching / Chemical Milling       Etching is the treatment of a prepared metal surface with acid or other chemical reagent, which, by differential attack, reveals the structure, creating a recessed image.  Chemical milling involves the removal of select material by etching, chemical milling etchant, chemical machining, or conversion of the material by some electrochemical reaction. 
   Honing       Honing uses abrasive stones or silicon-carbide slips that move in both rotational and axial directions to obtain a specified finish or dimensional tolerance. 
   Laser Machining       Laser machining is a material removal process accomplished by laser / material interaction. These processes include laser drilling, laser cutting and grooving, marking, and scribing. 
   Electrode EDM       Electrode EDM is a type of electric discharge machine (EDM) that uses a shaped die sinker or electrode to cut parts. 
   Wire EDM       Wire EDM is a type of electric discharge machine (EDM) that uses a wire to cut parts. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary operation. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   CNC Machining       CNC machines are fast, repeatable and programmable.  Machines are typically automated and unattended making it possible to manufacture complex and simple parts efficiently 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Micro Machining       Micro machining is the precision machining of intricate detail on small parts. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Superabrasive Machining       Superabrasive machining uses grinding wheels made from extra hard materials such as diamond, cubic boron nitride (CBN), and borazon. These hard materials allow for closer tolerance machining and less tool wear that is associated with traditional machining. Often a superabrasive machining process can replace two-or-more standard processes, resulting in overall costs savings.

Materials
           
   Your choices are...         
   Carbide       Carbides include silicon carbide, tungsten carbide, and titanium carbide as well as other compounds of a metal (Ti, W, Cr, and Zr) or metalloid (B, Si) and carbon. Carbides have excellent wear resistance and high hot-hardness. 
   Ceramics       Ceramics are any of various hard, brittle, heat-resistant and corrosion-resistant materials made by shaping and then firing a nonmetallic mineral, such as clay, at a high temperature.  Industrial ceramic materials consist of oxides, carbides, nitrides, carbon and other non-metals with high melting points.  Ceramic material types include alumina / aluminum oxide (Al2O3), boron nitride (BN), cubic boron nitride (CBN), silicon nitride, zirconia, and many others. 
   Diamond / PCD       Synthetic diamond is produced synthetically in a high temperature, high pressure process anvil press. Diamond is a superabrasive grain with the highest known hardness and a cubic crystal structure. Diamond is used for grinding nonferrous metals, ceramics, glass, stone, and building materials. Diamond is not useful in grinding steel or ferrous alloys because carbon or diamond readily dissolves or reacts with iron.  Diamond pastes are useful in ferrous polishing or lapping applications where heat and reactivity are not a factor.  Diamond is susceptible to oxidation at higher temperatures.  Industrial diamond grades such as polycrystalline diamond (PCD) are used for very long life, and sometimes for special applications such as very high-speed cutting. 
   Glass       Glass is a hard, brittle material consisting of a mixture of silicates. It is usually transparent or translucent. Glass is considered to be a cooled liquid rather than a true solid. 
   Glass Ceramics       Glass ceramics are ceramics that can be fused and then molded, formed, ground or machined using conventional glass fabrication techniques.  After part fabrication, the glass ceramic's structure is transformed from an amorphous glassy state to a crystalline ceramic state. MACOR®  is widely applied glass ceramic with a fluorine rich glass composition approaching trisilicic fluorphlogopite mica (KMg3AlSi3O10F2). MACOR® is a trademarked proprietary material of Corning Corporation.  Ceran®, Ceramat®, Robax® and Zerodur® are widely applied proprietary glass ceramics from Schott Glass Corporation. 
   Quartz       Quartz is a form of silica, or silicon dioxide, occurring in hexagonal crystals, which are commonly colorless and transparent, but sometimes also yellow, brown, purple, green, and of other colors. 
   Sapphire / Ruby       Sapphire is a high purity and density, single crystalline form of aluminum oxide, which may contain chromia, titania, yttria or other dopants.  Sapphire is usually transparent or translucent.  Sapphire ceramics are used in lasers, substrates, jewel bearings, watch crystals or other specialized, optical, wear and electronic applications. Ruby, corundum, topaz are other names for natural or synthetic sapphire.  Ruby is chromium doped sapphire used in optical filters and laser rods. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary material.
