Building parts that are used in optical systems requires Design for Manufacture experience that is the hallmark of Alloy Metal Products. It is necessary to understand the demands of the end user and the conditions the parts are going to be subjected to.
Machined parts that hold optics have to be built to extremely close tolerances over the expanse of the entire part. This requires insight into how the material is expected to perform in its end use and as it is machined to assure that the product is manufactured as engineered.
This especially applies when determining how to machine the part effectively when it involves thin wall construction from solid material where the mounting system needs to be not only durable but lightweight.
Minimal distortion on circular and thin wall materials demand the kind of experience that we are known for. Determining how something should be machined is more important than simply getting the part to match the print; that experience in manufacturing judgment is why demanding manufacturers come to Alloy Metal Products.
