Full ServiceCNC machining Ardel Engineering & Manufacturing, Inc. is a Precision CNC Machining, Swiss Screw Turning, Wire EDM Cutting & Assembly Facility. Many steps go into manufacturing a complex part, which is why it is crucial to maintain a cooperative effort across all departments in order to achieve high quality, cost effective parts. Explore how to achieve this goal in our in-depth eBook that offers design tips for machining parts.

While machining technology is always advancing, 2020 accelerated some key innovations. In the machining industry, many companies had to pivot and produce necessary supplies quickly, or they were met with a decreased demand for products and were forced to reduce jobs. Even in the best of times, it's getting more difficult to find manufacturing workers, and companies are turning to automation.

Using robotics to increase productivity is one of several trends and changes that are likely here to stay. Over the years, satellite communication systems-also known as satcom systems-have become increasingly important to our day-to-day lives.

read more › Our CNC machining capabilities at Ardel Engineering & Manufacturing include precision milling of components for customers in a vast array of industries. While many machine shops utilize only one type of milling center, our horizontal and vertical milling centers provide very different sets of advantages. The optimal choice for your project is very dependent on the shape, machined features, and volume of the part, and we have found that using both types of equipment makes us much more versatile and efficient than having a single mill type.

read more › At Ardel Engineering, we specialize in precision CNC machining services. As suggested by the name, precision computer numerical control (CNC) machining relies on the use of specialized computer software (e.g., CAD/CAM) and computer-controlled equipment to produce highly accurate and precise parts and products from various materials. It is an umbrella term encompassing a variety of subtractive manufacturing processes. One of our core service offerings is CNC milling. While most CNC milling applies to metalwork, the tools are extremely versatile and produce custom, precision parts for a wide variety of industries.

Swiss screw machining is a subtractive manufacturing (i.e., machining) process that employs the use of Swiss-type machining equipment. It differs from other machining equipment in that it uses a guide bushing to minimize the distance between the main spindle and the cutting tool.

read more › At Ardel Engineering & Manufacturing, we utilize electrical discharge machining (EDM) processes to create precision parts with very tight tolerances. In the wire electrical discharge machining process, a thin, electrically charged wire is used to erode material in very small volumes. The rate of material removal is dependent on the diameter of the wire and thickness of the work piece; larger diameters are used to make efficient rough cuts, while fine wire is used to meet tight dimensional tolerances and provide a very clean surface finish that requires no secondary grinding or honing.

read more › Our team at Ardel Engineering & Manufacturing has the expertise and experience to back up our precision machining processes with the most stringent and comprehensive inspection services in the industry. The parts we produce are typically complex components that require a high degree of precision and are used in critical aerospace or medical applications. These parts not only require in-depth inspections and analysis, but present unique inspection challenges. To overcome these challenges, we employ a myriad of product validation methods that allow us to check everything from linear tolerances to complex Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerances (GD&T).

read more › Here at Ardel Engineering & Manufacturing not only do we provide a number of in-house secondary value added services for all machined parts, we are also willing to offer and manage turnkey complete parts and assemblies using our certified subcontract vendors. These specifications are only used for military and aerospace products and can ensure corrosion resistance, fatigue resistance, and outstanding pain adhesion. MIL-DTL-5541 Type I chemical film, refers to the use of hexavalent chromium. The coloring of this film usually appears to be gold or brown in color, but can be clear.

But just how do you know whether or not you are getting the appropriate protection from gas masks and respirators? Any leak or faulty seal could lead to dire health consequences! Ardel Engineering was retained by a client to improve the manufacturability of a particle counter components, a challenge that was tackled with a strict implementation of DFM (design for manufacturability) principles.

read more › This project involved the fabrication of an aerospace filter body with complex geometry and multiple features, and highlights the capability of our technical team to produce such complicated parts on a swiss screw machine. Normally, fabrication of an aerospace filter body with multiple features would require multiple set-ups on many different machines-by nature requiring a long lead time due to the change-over involved with multiple set-ups. However, Ardel's experience and equipment capabilities allowed us to completely produce the part in one set-up on one machine.

read more › With the trend of parts needing to become smaller, lighter, and more complex, one of the issues that can arise is part volume set back due to multiple operations needing to be performed. However, at Ardel Engineering & Manufacturing, we use our Citizen Swiss Screw Machines to solve this problem. The live tooling and part index abilities of our Swiss Screw Machines allow us to load a full bar of stock and produce burr free parts in one operation. This eliminates the need for material sawing, setting up multi vises or a 4th axis rotary indexer to handle the machining on multiple sides of the part.
