Precision cold forming and engineering company, Dawson Shanahan, in partnership with Asahi Diamond Industrial, has perfected a production process for the precision grinding of small component parts
to tolerances of just a few microns, at high speed and in large volumes. Suited to parts manufactured for medical, automotive, electronics and aerospace applications, the process runs on custom built systems supplied by specialist machine builder E-Tech, and produces results that are believed to be far better than anything currently achievable in a commercial environment.
Dawson Shanahan claims that the process is capable of producing parts with exceptionally accurate, highly polished surface finishes, with tolerances of less than 1.0micron when measured over each square millimetre of surface area.
