The Del Rio Company represents a number of quality vendors as a supplier of industrial parts and instrumentation. One of the manufacturers we represent is Premier Industries. Premier Industries is a manufacturer of proprietary specialty gas and hydraulic regulators, valves and systems that serves a worldwide market.
Their pressure regulators are tough and demonstrate heavy duty dependability in various industries while maintaining quality precision performance. Their parts are made to last and perform because they are made from a variety of materials and with tight tolerances throughout.
Premier Industries Partners with HORN For Better Pressure Regulator Parts
A new partnership with HORN has made Premier’s parts even better in terms of performance and longevity.
On their website, they released an article describing what this means for you, the consumer:
Premier needed a solution for faster cycle times and a better finish on custom, grooved pressure regulator parts. It found it in the HORN base holder for system 960 and modular grooving system 845, used on a Euro Tech twin/spindle/twin turret lathe.
The application requires parting off 2.5″ diameter, 316 stainless steel or aluminum into pieces that utilized a 3.0mm wide grooved insert. “The tooling system we were using was running very slow, and our finishes were not up to standard,” said Chuck Wimer, Operations manager at Premier Industries. “We went from cycle times of 1 minute, 40 seconds per part to 35 seconds per part, and cutting speeds went from 120 SFM to 250 SFM. Our finish improved from 51-55 Ra to 11-16 Ra consistently, and flatness went from .003-.0035 in. to .0001-.0003 in. across the 2.5-in. diameter. The parts are straight to under 0.001″, so, we are very pleased with these results.”
With this approach, Premier also increased tool life from 25 parts per edge to 75 parts per edge, while reducing cost per part from $4.30 to $0.91. “This has had a huge impact on our operations and our bottom line,” added Wimer. “The solution is performing very well, actually better than we thought it would. We are vertically integrated, so after designing and producing the parts, we assemble and test them in our facilities. We’ve seen labor costs decrease in the downstream assembly phase simply because we’re working with better parts. The surface finishes and seals are excellent.
