Tighter tolerances for flow control components

Lenox Laser Inc., as a supplier of laser drilled orifices in a variety of components, has been meeting requirements for very tight tolerance parts that have been in high demand for several years.

Industry, at an ever increasing rate, is requiring tighter tolerances on flow control components. Lenox Laser Inc., as a supplier of laser drilled orifices in a variety of components, has been meeting these requirements for very tight tolerance parts that have been in high demand for several years. To accommodate this demand, the company has developed proprietary processes that allow tolerances to be held consistently.

Tolerances can be as tight as +/-0.5% and +/-1% on a 10 micron or larger hole sizes. Compare this to standard tolerances that typically range from +/-5% and larger with respect to the hole size (i.e. a 1 micron hole can have a standard tolerance of close to +/-50% depending upon the part material and thickness).

Often customers may need tighter tolerances on a nominal size and also matched sets or pairs with tolerances of +/-1 to 2% of each other. Integration of the laser process with its flow testing capabilities ensures repeatable results with higher yields. Very tight tolerances can be held on most standard flow components the company offers, as well as customer supplied parts.
