Project: Precision CNC Machining of an Aluminum Pivot-Handle Lug
At Illinois Broaching Co., Inc., our well-equipped facility enables us to rapidly and cost effectively fabricate small, close tolerance parts that meet the specific demands of the aerospace industry. One such project was the production of these steel pivot-handle lugs for a radio/communications device. Working with extruded aluminum, we created programs for turning and broaching these .450″ x .300″ x .225″ pieces, then deburring and tapping the threads. To ensure we met the quality requirements, our technicians conducted both dimensional and gage inspections to verify tolerances were held to ±.0015. We machine these pieces in quantities of 5,000-10,000 per order, depending on customer requirements.
