Machined Parts for Fluid Power & Plumbing Industries
Avanti Engineering produces high-quality machined parts for customers in the Fluid Power and Plumbing industries. We efficiently deliver medium to high production volumes for customers. Our parts are produced with tight tolerances and our service to customers is unrivaled.
Machined parts are essential components for fluid power and plumbing industries. They help keep systems running smoothly, safely, and efficiently. Without these small yet important parts, many complex machines and systems would be unable to function as intended.
We pride ourselves on machining custom parts specifically for your fluid power or plumbing needs. Our goal is to create parts that not only meet your specifications but also consider material compatibility, performance requirements, cost-effectiveness, and durability. We want to ensure that the parts we offer are not only reliable but also withstand the test of time.
Types of Fluid Power Machined Parts
Machined parts come in all shapes and sizes to accommodate different types of applications. Depending on the type of system you’re working with, there may be specialized machined parts that are designed specifically for that system.
Fluid Power and Plumbing parts are commonly machined from brass and stainless steel. Brass is an economical option and an easy metal to machine. Brass parts are durable and can tolerate extreme temperature changes without jeopardizing their integrity. Stainless steel is more challenging to machine but offers a product that is corrosion-resistant.
Valve Spools: These are precision-machined parts within hydraulic and pneumatic valves that direct and control fluid flow. They move within the valve body to control the flow by opening and closing the appropriate channels.
Hydraulic Pistons: These are critical components of hydraulic cylinders, machined to high accuracy to provide a tight seal and efficient fluid power transfer.
Pump Impellers: These are CNC-machined components of centrifugal and other pumps. They are designed to spin and impart velocity to a fluid.
Flanges: These are machined rims or edges at the end of pipes, allowing for easier connection to other pipes or equipment.
Gland Nuts: These are components of a gland assembly and they hold the packing material in place to provide a seal in a piston or valve assembly.
Valve Seats: The valve seat is the surface against which an intake or an exhaust valve rests. Its important to be accurately machined to ensure a tight seal when the valve is closed.
CNC Machined Fittings: These include various connectors like elbows, tees, and unions. They are machined to exact specifications to ensure a perfect fit in plumbing systems.
Spindles: These are machined components often found in valves like faucets. They help in controlling the flow of fluid when the valve is opened or closed.
Couplings: These are precision-machined components used to connect two shafts together at their ends for the purpose of transmitting power.
Gaskets: These precision-cut sealing devices prevent fluid leaks between mating surfaces in a plumbing or fluid power assembly.
Shafts: In fluid power systems, shafts are often CNC-machined to precise dimensions and tolerances for perfect fit and smooth power transmission.
Bushing: This is a type of bearing that is typically used to reduce friction within a mechanism and is often found in many types of fluid power equipment.
Swivel Joints: These are precision-machined parts that provide a pivot point for components to rotate while maintaining a seal.
Poppets: These are machined components in valves that move to cover and uncover ports, controlling fluid flow direction and rate.
CNC machined Hydraulic Ferrules: These are ring or cap types of attachments typically used to secure hoses or tubes in a hydraulic system.
These parts require precision, and that’s where CNC machining shines, as it can produce parts with very tight tolerances and excellent repeatability.
Equipment for Fluid Power Machined Parts
To produce these high-quality components, machining equipment like CNC Swiss lathes and CNC bar lathes are utilized. These machines are designed to manufacture a wide range of parts, including shafts, spindles, bushings, and valves. They are specifically engineered to work with a variety of materials, such as steel, aluminum, brass, and copper, allowing for versatility in the production of fluid power machined parts.
CNC Swiss Lathes
These cutting-edge machines have opened up new possibilities and efficiencies in our manufacturing processes. They are capable of cutting complex components for use in fluid power systems, fluid power circuits, electric motors, linear motion, rotary motion and heavy machinery. From hydraulic valves to air compressors, CNC Swiss lathes deliver precision and accuracy while drastically reducing production time. They have several advantages:
