Successfully building a reputation for providing top-notch, precision machining servicesAshley Ward was contracted by a client from the appliance industry to manufacture a series of steel spin pinions. These components are used within a washing machine 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 on 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. Common machined parts utilized in-home appliance applications are splined shafts, driveshafts, pins, gears, studs, threaded rods, and more.
