Challenge Met™ is more than a portfolio of our work. It’s how we measure the results and solutions we achieve for our customers. Here are just a few examples:
Monsees Group worked with the customer to determine material, design details, and achievable tolerances to produce prototypes and production lots inside their budgeted cost. The final process used a combination of conventional milling, rough grinding, hard milling, and finish grinding to meet the final specifications.
Monsees Group worked with the customer to optimize GD&T to meet application needs and determine achievable and acceptable tolerances. We used a combination of mill-turn and 5-axis milling equipment to complete the part in two setups. To provide inspection data, our 5-axis programmable CMM was used to measure critical diameters, outside flange features and prism positions in one setup.
Our Custom Machining group designed and produced tooling required to soft machine the custom thread impression, ground all shutoffs, keys, taper angles and impressions diameters, and delivered parts complete to the customer in 6 weeks.
Monsees produced all parts in the assembly per original drawing specifications to tolerance and delivered prototype barrels to customer. Based on that first lot, our Precision Components team discussed process opportunities and identified improvements to processes that would result in required cost reductions. Reductions were achieved over 1 to 2 subsequent runs and passed on to the customer.
Monsees Group’s Custom Machining group was able to complete this project using our highly accurate vertical milling and wire EDM equipment to meet the required clearance. Experienced personnel cut matching punch and die profiles using wire EDM, and fit the die in assembly, finishing dowel pins hole locations to size and locking the assembly in place. The assembly was tested and put into production without issue.
An initial lot was produced from this design and delivered to the customer in 8 weeks, with a follow-on quantity to meet an initial customer order for testing. Monsees’s Technical Services team worked with the customer to incorporate necessary changes to the design and ultimately modify the initial lots produced. Meanwhile, our Precision Components team developed a production plan, including investments in tooling and fixtures, to produce parts at a higher quantity and maintain quality. Initial production lots were monitored and improved in-process, with many changes to the initial process made to improve outcomes in a production environment.
