DESIGN PROCESS

Sophisticated devices require precision components that perform under myriad stressors. Plastic-machined components offer advantages including weight reduction, flexibility, biocompatibility, non-conductivity, and clarity. Controlled Fluidics makes production-quality components that provide real solutions. Maintaining accurate dimensions is a combination of part configuration, material choice, and machining technique, and Controlled Fluidics’ expert engineers are exactly the partners you need to help you navigate the production process.

So, if you have a project in mind, get in touch. Our engineers will examine your design and use it to provide material recommendations. Then your project will move through the manufacturing and inspecting phases, always under the watchful eyes of the team at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Manchester, NH.

MATERIALS SELECTION

Component design varies depending on the specific material selected, as tensile, compressive, and flexural strength and dimensional stability each play a role in how a material performs under a range of temperatures and as it ages. Controlled Fluidics machines the following plastic materials:

DESIGN SUPPORT

If you have a design in mind, but would like some help narrowing down your material choices, our engineers are available to evaluate your design and then make material recommendations that will meet your project’s unique requirements in the most cost-effective and reliable way.
