AI can be programmed to learn from the data ERP software gathers to make deeper and more accurate predictions regarding customers, buying habits, inventory levels, markets, material purchasing and more.
EDM - could be classified as one of the most useful in a modern shop. Also called a spark machining tool, the device uses sparks, or electricity, to cut through materials. It uses thermal energy to make the cuts by removing material.
The unique characteristics of PCE overcome many of the issues associated with more traditional metal cutting technologies, and as such - in some instances - when looking for a cost-effective solution for the manufacture of precise metal parts, it is the only viable choice.
Our retention knobs are manufactured above international standards or to machine builder specifications. Retention knobs are manufactured utilizing AMS-6274/AISI-8620 alloy steel drawn in the United States. Threads are single-pointed on our lathes while manufacturing all other retention knob features to ensure high concentricity. Our process ensures that our threads are balanced (lead in/lead out at 180 degrees.) Each retention knob is carburized (hardened) to 58-62HRC, and case depth is .020-.030. Core hardness 40HRC. Each retention knob is coated utilizing a hot black oxide coating to military specifications. Our retention knobs are 100% covered in black oxide to prevent rust. All retention knob surfaces (not just mating surfaces) have a precision finish of 32 RMA micro or better: ISO grade 6N. Each retention knob is magnetic particle tested and tested at 2.5 times the pulling force of the drawbar. Certifications are maintained for each step in the manufacturing process for traceability.
