A machining client was asked to machine a medical component with tolerances of +- .0005" after Type III hard anodize. Planning, machining and anodizing to such tight tolerance is challenging at best. Qualtek helped the client determine the pre-anodize target dimensions, adjusted for the buildup of anodize. The client reported that Qualtek delivered the entire batch of parts at the center of the tolerance, without scraping a single piece.
