Analytical Components LLC is Precision at work for you. We are a connection to the precision hard materials you need. Component processing, assembly, and final verification of critical dimensions provide superior value to our customers. AC offers a broad selection of hard material components such as pump pistons, optical guides, check valve seats, precision ruby balls and sapphire windows. Part of our core competency lies in our experience with interference fits, allowing us to specialize in combining materials such as synthetic sapphire and various metals without the use of epoxies or fasteners.
Analytical Components Expertise
We can suggest existing products that allow you to leverage economy of scale and minimize cost associated with developing new processes and buying small volumes of raw materials. However, we can produce a variety of custom metal designs coupled with hard materials, so customers are not limited to our standard products.
- We can assist you with your prototype development
- Ability to add unique features to hard materials
- Engineered fitment of various materials
- Design for Manufacturing (DFM) recommendations
- Hard materials knowledge
AC leverages over 50 years of hard materials industry experience in manufacturing custom sapphire and ceramic components for OEM customers.
We work collaboratively to establish an environment that allows us to meet our customers’ most demanding challenges. Our intent is to match production cost, quality and delivery with our customers’ critical requirements.
- Surface finishes down to 0.0064μm (0.25 µin)
- OD Lapping and Centerless Grinding
- Tolerances as low as 0.254μm (0.00001”)
- ID Honing
- End Grinding
- Flat Lapping / Polishing
- Plus numerous other proprietary process methods
AC has a core competency working with dissimilar material integration. Our proprietary assembly methods do not require adhesives or additional fasteners: reducing contamination or risk of chemical leeching. We assemble ceramic, sapphire or ruby components with holders for custom applications. Our superior understanding of the interference between mating parts provides exceptional control over assembly integrity, concentricity and extension length.
