CNC Vertical Machining & Water Jet Cutting of an Aluminum Gage Plate for the Label Manufacturing Industry
Request a Quote
At Pride Tool, we have the in-depth knowledge of machining and fabricating various metals. We used CNC vertical machining and water jet cutting equipment to form aluminum gauge plates for our customer in the label manufacturing industry. Our vertical machining capabilities provide high precision, while the waterjet cutting process applies minimum stress and therefore no thermal distortion or hardening.
This low volume project features an aluminum gauge plate used for rotary adjustments in label manufacturing industry equipment. We began by applying customer specifications as a design guide including 2D CAD drawings. Our Cincinnati production facility is equipped with an advanced Hardinge GX1600 CNC vertical machining center, which producing these parts that measured 16.5" OD x 1.000" thick. We formed the Mic-6 aluminum plate with a thickness of 1" and a raw polished finish. Our repeatable processes and CMM inspection produce parts maintaining tight tolerances of +/- 0.002". We focus on precision and are able to produce small quantities and prototypes efficiently. For more information on this project, see the table below and contact us directly.
