Machining of Manifold Connection Parts for A National Research Lab

At Edward Köehn Co., Inc. we have a long-standing reputation of producing precision components for equipment used in critical research and technology development projects. We produced the unions and couplings shown here for use in a standard manifold connection for a light source. In addition to prototype development, this project took advantage of many of our capabilities. We utilized both Swiss and conventional CNC turning equipment as well as a cam-driven single-spindle machine to form the various geometries on these five components. Constructed from brass and stainless steel, the components featured a 32 RMS surface finish and we manufactured them in various diameters and lengths. Ultrasonic cleaning ensured they were free of microscopic fines and traces of machining, while passivation gave them long lasting protection from damaging corrosion. Machined to within +.005/-0.00 tolerances, we produced them in quantities ranging from 100 to 3,000 units.
