Precision Machined Fittings

One of the most common part types we see in our shop fall under the category of fittings. These kinds of parts are typically used to connect two or more pieces of material to help with the transfer of various substances. Most fittings are made to connect materials that are not alike, attaching different material, different sizes, different shapes, or different directions of flow.

Brass Fittings Manufacturer

A client from the hydraulics industry contacted Ashley Ward to manufacture a series of brass fittings. These fittings allow for quick connection and disconnection of hydraulic lines. Using our premium Acme Gridley machines, we were able to maintain a tight tolerance of just (±) .002 of an inch, which allowed us to meet precise customer design specifications.
