Machining Cycle Time, Cost Reduction, Weight Reduction

A manufacturer of parts for portable power air compression needed a solution to problems including high scrap rates and proper balancing of their compressor rotor.

Dura-Bar 65-45-12 free machining properties resulted in reduced machining cycle times and lowered tooling costs. Superior quality material eliminated the high scrap rates, with Dura-Bar’s Zero Defect Guarantee instilling confidence. The consistent material properties of ductile iron also improved balancing over steel.
