Home Appliance Machining

Precision Machining of 1215 Steel Spin Pinion for the Appliance IndustryAshley Ward machined home appliance components, such as pinion gears, can be found all over the house, from the kitchen counter top to the laundry room. Over the years our presence in the home appliance industry has grown substantially. Ashley Ward manufactures key assembly components for well know and trusted brands in the appliance market. Transmissions that drive everyday appliances start with Ashley Ward products.

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 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 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. Common machined parts utilized in home appliance applications are splined shafts, drive shafts, pins, gears, studs, threaded rods, and more.
