Development of Aluminum Custom Pallets used in an Electronics Manufacturing Process
- This part was a result of partnering with our customer early in the engineering &
- This partnership helped design & manufacture a high quality, but low cost pallet.
- Flatness and tightly positioned dowel pin holes along with repeatable close tolerance pocket
features made this project a manufacturing challenge
- This part was manufactured using precision 4 axis machining, hard anodizing with a PTFE,
& complete inspection with our new Zeiss coordinate measuring machine (CMM). Tolerances
held on this project were held to .0005" on milling sequences while holding .003" flatness.
- Part material 6061-T6 Aluminum. 1" X 14" X 18"
- We manufactured this project from prototype to production (approx. 300 pieces per year).
