Successfully building a reputation for providing top-notch, precision machining services, Ashley Ward was contracted by a client from the appliance industry to manufacture a series of steel spin pinions. These components are used within a washer assembly.
Employing our advanced Acme Gridley machinery, we performed a variety of secondary operations, including broaching, gear hobbing, and grinding to produce these pinions, all while maintaining a tight (±) .001 of an inch precision tolerance. Based off a customer supplied print, we manufactured these parts to measure 1.5 inches in outside diameter and 2.016 inches in length. After production was complete, we then packaged and delivered all components to our client's facility within a short, 8-10 week turnaround period.
Providing top-notch precision machining services within short lead times, Ashley Ward was able to successfully manufacture a large series of steel spin pinions for their customer. Meeting precise customer specifications, Ashley Ward has now been contracted to produce 1,000,000 spin pinions annually for this client.
