As we have built our grinding operation we have come across a wide variety of parts that we didn’t really know there was a market for. One such market is high precision low tolerance custom mandrels. Mandrels are typically used in manufacturing to electroform or shape machined parts. Clients come to us when the mandrels they were using break or need to be replaced. They typically need the mandrels yesterday. We understand, we run a contract manufacturing facility with high customer demands and we know the pressure of lost machine time at the company.
Products such as depth mandrels, tunneling mandrels, coiling mandrels and tipping mandrels are fairly easy for us to accomplish with our advanced CNC grinding machinery. We are able to make small prototype lots or large productions lots alike. We have a variety of stainless steel and nitinol material in stock for fast turnaround of these types of parts.
Our sweet spot for mandrels is between diameters of .003″ and .1″. We are able to achieve multi-steps, flats and tapers to achieve complex forms for your manufacturing operation. Contact us today to find out how we can help.
Below is a sample of a couple of custom mandrels that we made:
