In support of increased demand from our Pennsylvania based customer, Kroll Technologies LLC was selected to provide regular deliveries of Aerospace Fastener Blanks. Our customer supplied us with 2D CAD drawings of this component. As is done for all part projects, Kroll Technologies' Engineering team performed a comprehensive design review to ensure manufacturability as well as a complete quality plan by Quality Assurance. We started with .1875" diameter, A-286 Iron Based Super Alloy. The ultra-close tolerance of .0001" (2.5 microns) required us to machine these on our most recently purchased Swiss-type CNC Automatic Lathes. Cutting tools can breakdown rapidly when machining super alloy triggering near constant dimensional drift, A-286 is no different. Consequently, maintaining tight tolerances proves all the more difficult. Kroll Technologies simply flexed its staffing resources to tackle the challenge. After the parts were machined, they were degreased and cleaned using an automated ultrasonic cleaning system. Final part dimensions were .435" (11.04 mm) in length with a diameter of .1457" (3.70 mm). 100% dimensional inspections were performed using indicating micrometers, optical comparator and one of our Keyence IM-6020 vision measurement systems. We provide this to our Pennsylvania customer on a time schedule of 6 weeks. This project highlights our capability to manufacture exotic and difficult to machine material while maintaining extreme precision.
In support of a R&D project for our Oregon based customer, Kroll Technologies LLC was tasked with machining this Wehnelt electrode in prototype quantities. Our customer supplied 2D CAD drawings and 3D models of this component. As is done for all part projects, Kroll Technologies’ Engineering team performed a comprehensive design review to ensure manufacturability as well as a complete quality plan by QA. Kroll Technologies started with DFARS compliant, .500" diameter, 316 Stainless Steel per AMS-QQ-S-763, ASTM A276 which is inventoried on site along with a wide variety of raw materials. The complexity of this piece required us to machine the electrodes on a 7 axis Swiss-type CNC Automatic Lathe that offered the ability to turn, drill 1mm holes into the side of the part, as well as off-center drilling & helical thread milling of a miniature M1 x .25-6G thread into the face of the piece to drop them complete in one operation. After the parts were machined, they were degreased and cleaned using an automated ultrasonic cleaning system. Final part dimensions were .2992" (7.6mm) in length with a diameter of .433" (11mm). 100% dimensional inspections were performed using a micrometer, pin gages, thread plug gages, optical comparator and one of our Keyence IM-6020 vision measurement systems. To measure internal angles, radii and other geometry, a precise cross section of the piece was made available. Following inspection, the parts were passivated using citric acid per the ASTM-A-967 and AMS 2700 standards and packaged for shipment.
