Contract Machining

At Dura-Metal, we use the latest machining technologies to manufacture precision components. Our customers rely on us for full service machining services, including:

  • EDM
  • Grinding
  • Honing (Rotary, External, Extrude)
  • Turning
  • CNC
  • Vertical
  • Milling
  • Flat Lapping
  • Polishing (Bench, Rotary, Superfinishing)

When it comes to Honing, we have the expertise and equipment to meet your specific requirements. Our Rotary Honing process is performed under an oil bath for maximum lubrication and heat control to yield the desired finish and diameter of:

  • Broach Rings
  • Bushings
  • Compacting Dies
  • Extrusion Dies
  • Petrochemical Liners
  • Much More

We also offer External Honing for workpieces with diameters up to 3.5”. We use super-abrasive films as fine as 1200 grit to produce finished to < 2 RMS µin (microinch) in the production of:

  • Core Rods
  • Plungers
  • Rolls
  • Other Components

Our External Honing capabilities produce improved circular conditions with ultimate precision to a maximum of 3” diameter.

As for Lapping and Polishing, our highly skilled craftspeople perform a wide range of Bench, Superfinishing and Rotary Flat Lapping operations that yield:

  • Superior Surface Finishes
  • Uniform Edge-to-Edge Flatness to millionths of an inch
  • Precise Repeatability

With Superfinishing to < 1 RMS µin mirror finish for parts up to 10” diameter and 40” length, and Rotary Flat Lapping to within 1 light band or < 0.00001 inch, we can lap parts up to 12” diameter.

Given our breadth and depth of experience, chances are excellent that we’ve manufactured precision tooling or component parts with similar or identical requirements to yours.

Our technical expertise allows us to fill your orders to specification, on-time and on-budget, every time.
