These special pins were individually machined to the customer's specific requirements and drawings using plastic material called PVDF. This material is typically used for special applications requiring parts resistant to chemicals and heat, all while maintaining high levels of strength. Since the pins are machined individually we can typically process even small quantity orders for this type of part.

Easily one of the more odd specials we have worked on for a customer, this is the niche nipple repair plug made to a print provided by our long time customer. Each part is machined individually, making it a fairly expensive item to produce and to tool up for. Smaller quantities of this type of special part are therefore not financially feasible for most applications.
