No-Quote? No Way! How We Solve Precision Machining Problems

Leave a Comment

No-quoting is an unfortunate reality of the precision machining industry. But at Peerless Precision, we do everything possible to avoid no-quoting our customers. Instead of seeing projects through the black and white lens of quoting or not quoting, we like to focus on how we can solve our customers’ manufacturing problems, particularly if a project […]

CMMC Certification

How CMMC Compliance Makes Us a Better Precision Machine Shop

Leave a Comment

Our customers know that high-precision parts are our specialty, but there’s more to meeting customer needs than achieving tight tolerances. One of the most important aspects of our work is keeping customer information secure, which is why we’re proud to be a level 2 Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) compliant shop. If you’re unfamiliar with […]

Are the Tightest Tolerances Always Necessary?

Leave a Comment

Parts with tight tolerances are our specialty—we don’t call ourselves Peerless Precision for nothing! So you may be surprised to see us advocating for looser tolerances. But hear us out: If your costs and lead times for a specific part are higher and longer than you’d prefer, it’s worth investigating that part’s tolerances. While tight […]

Design Best Practices for CNC Machined Parts

Leave a Comment

When designing a 3D model for precision CNC machining services, the possibilities are virtually endless. But just because you can include certain features or tolerances doesn’t always mean you should. Precision machining has its limitations, and when engineers take these limitations into account during the design process, they can transition smoothly to manufacturing, saving valuable […]

Myth-Busting the Precision Machining Quoting Process

Leave a Comment

Quoting manufacturing jobs might seem relatively straightforward, but there’s much more to it than meets the eye. Customers often harbor misconceptions about quoting that are far from the truth. We want to set the record straight on a few pervasive quoting myths to demystify the precision machining quoting process—and help you save valuable time. 3 […]

Honing vs Lapping

When to Choose Honing vs. Lapping for a Smooth Surface Finish

Leave a Comment

When your part needs an ultra-smooth surface finish, there are a few finishing operations precision machine shops use to get the job done. Electropolishing, a common finishing process that removes a thin outer layer of metal to reduce roughness, might be sufficient. But if you need a surface finish finer than 16 Ra, honing or […]

6 Keys to Successful Prototyping for Precision Machining

Leave a Comment

Are you considering working with a precision machine shop to develop a prototype? Prototyping is, by nature, an iterative process, and getting a new part or product right takes time. Before requesting a quote for your prototype, it’s important to know what to expect so that you have the best experience possible. What Precision Machining […]

CNC Turned Parts

How Peerless Precision Leverages Vertical Integration for CNC Turned Parts

Leave a Comment

Did you know that most lathe parts need secondary operations? CNC turning is usually the first stop on a longer machining journey that can require a wide range of capabilities. If a machine shop doesn’t offer a full complement of secondary and finishing services in-house, they’ll have to outsource certain operations, adding cost and time […]

Tungsten

Superior Tungsten Machining at Peerless Precision

Leave a Comment

Tungsten, one of the hardest elements in the world, is a reliable material for numerous manufacturing applications that encounter high-intensity environments. Tungsten boasts the highest boiling point of all chemical elements, and with the second-highest melting point (after carbon), it’s capable of withstanding extreme temperatures up to 6,192 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s also naturally corrosion-resistant, repelling […]
