Problem Solving with Difficult Parts

At Controlled Fluidics we pride ourselves on solving our customers’ problems, no matter the challenge.  Sometimes that means figuring out how to manufacture a difficult part, involving tight tolerances, difficult geometries, and unstable materials.   In fact, we have pushed the boundaries of plastic machining to help our customers design and create some of the world’s most advanced equipment in a wide variety of industries.

Difficult parts are a showcase product for Controlled Fluidics. It requires our engineers to move beyond traditional plastic machining techniques and learn new and innovative approaches. If you browse the photos on our website, you will see examples of our manufacturing capabilities.   

For example, we have designed and manufactured complex components that were machined to be springs and have the thinnest wall ever in Peek Optima – .0008″. Another typical challenge for Controlled Fluidics is abrasive/unstable materials and tolerances to .0002.  We solve problems like this every day.
