CNC & Swiss Machined Parts - Process Examples

Bel Air develops cost effective processes for finishing Swiss Machined and CNC machined parts of varying sizes and all materials across a wide range of industries. Bel Air uses these processes in conjunction with media and/or process compounds to create high quality finishes on all machined parts

Deburr Brass & Bronze Pin Connectors

Objective
Deburr Fine Cross Slots
Part Description
Electronic Connectors
Material
Brass
Process Type
High Energy Mini Hoppa

These microscopic screw machined connectors needed to have their cross slots and other surfaces deburred.

Bel Air was able to develop a high volume system of deburring, cleaning, and drying that was able to increase customer production 3X.

CNC Machined Part - Centrifugal Disk Deburring

Small metal part made with a CNC machine
Objective
Remove Burrs & Sharp Edges
Part Description
CNC Machined Part
Material
1-4 PH (Stainless Steel)
Process Type
Disk Finisher Machine

This part was created at a multi axis CNC machining center. The manufacturer was removing burrs & sharp edges by hand originally. Hand finishing large amounts of parts is a time consuming and not very cost effective process. Bel Air was able to reduce the cost of labor associated with hand finishing by providing a more consistent higher quality finish using a centrifugal disk finisher.

CNC Miniature Deburring Process

Objective
Deburr
Part Description
Small Medical Part
Material
Soft Kovar Steel Alloy
Process Type
Centrifugal Barrel Finisher

These are miniature medical parts made from a very soft malleable steel alloy, kovar. In order to eliminate the hand deburring of these parts, Bel Air was able to make the finishing process more efficient by using a centrifugal barrel finisher to deburr the parts.
