There are numerous plastics and metals that can be used in manufacturing processes. Here are some commonly used materials in each category
3.Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
5.Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
6.Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET)
10.Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF)
1.Steel (carbon steel, stainless steel)
These materials have different properties, such as strength, durability, heat resistance, electrical conductivity, and chemical resistance. The choice of material depends on the specific requirements of the product, including its function, environment, aesthetics, and cost considerations. Manufacturers select the most suitable material based on these factors to ensure the desired performance and quality of the final product.
- Dimensional Tolerances: These specify the allowable variation in dimensions such as length, width, height, diameter, etc. For example, a product may have a dimensional tolerance of ±0.1mm, meaning the actual dimensions can vary within this range. Formed Mfg tolerances for each service can be found on the services pages.
- Geometric Tolerances: These define the allowable variation in geometric features such as straightness, flatness, roundness, concentricity, symmetry, etc. Geometric tolerances ensure that the product’s shape and form meet the required specifications.
- Surface Finish Tolerances: These specify the acceptable variation in surface roughness or texture. Surface finish tolerances ensure that the product’s surface meets the desired smoothness or roughness requirements.
- Material Property Tolerances: These define the acceptable variation in material properties such as hardness, strength, elasticity, conductivity, etc. Material property tolerances ensure that the product’s material characteristics meet the required standards.
It’s important to note that the specific tolerances for a particular product are typically defined in engineering drawings, specifications, or industry standards. Manufacturers adhere to these tolerances during the production process to ensure consistent quality and compliance with customer requirements.
