Due to the sensitive nature of the work we do many of our projects are subject to Non Disclosue Agreements preventing us from showing some of the things we do.
We can show you the following case studies;
The requirement was to design and manufacture a precision embossing mechanism for the MEMS industry to interface with an existing wafer bonding platform. This patented design combines constrained flexural movement with precision drives to provide high positional accuracy and low error motion.
The Deltaturn Super Precision Lathe was designed and built to meet the specifications necessary to turn hard disc drive hubs for the computer industry. Cranfield Precision were contracted to manufacture and demonstrate capability on a range of customer components before delivering two machines to the US production facility in California.
The main axis of the machine uses a stepped hydrostatic design with rail positioning that provides zero roll errors drastically reduicng the majority of errors experienced on conventional lathes.
The Cranfield Precision HPB4³ Horizontal Boring Machine is a high performance horizontal Jig boring machine. The HPB4³ features a temperature controlled enclosure, kinematically supported machine base and a high precision hydrostatic tool spindle.
The machine designed and built by Cranfield Precision is capable of grinding large glass elements with spherical and aspheric surfaces to satisfy the stringent needs of optical imagining systems.
Porous Ceramic Hydrostatic Bearing Technology has been developed at Cranfield Precision in conjunction with Cranfield University. A collaborative project saw the design and manufacture of a set of ultra precision spindle bearings for a porous ceramic hydrostatic spindle. The project was for Lawrence Livermore National laboratory's Precision Optical Grinder And Lathe (POGAL) machine concept project.
