A Pledge: At JMJ Profile, we understand that your business – and by extension, your livelihood – depend on the G10 parts machining services that we provide. That’s why we’ve pledged to only offer customers like you the top quality G10 parts needed to exceed your expectations and accomplish your goals, regardless of what those goals happen to be.
But at the same time, it’s important to understand that there truly is no “one size fits all” approach to G10 fiberglass machining. A component that is destined for use in a medical device will have very different requirements than one that needs to meet the needs of a sensitive military application. That’s why it’s ultimately so important to hire a partner who doesn’t just have G10 parts machining experience, but who can deliver quality products that will match your unique parts machining specifications time and time again.
G10 Machining Parts: When “Getting it Right” is More Important Than “Getting it Done”
G10 itself is a special type of composite material that is created by bringing together fiberglass and an epoxy under incredibly high pressures. At the end of this process, you’re left with a laminate that is not only able to stand up to significant temperature fluctuations, but that also has low moisture absorption, a very high strength-to-weight ratio and other benefits.
At the same time, G10 is nothing if not flexible – meaning that it’s every bit as valuable to organizations in the aerospace industry as it is in healthcare or the military, albeit for very different reasons. That’s why, if you partner with a company that doesn’t have the special capabilities necessary to extract as much potential from your G10 materials as possible, you’ll likely wind up in a situation where you’re constantly hearing some variation of “yes, that’s possible… but we can’t necessarily do it here in-house.”
G10 Parts Machining for Positive Results
Instead, what you need is someone who is willing to say “yes, we can do it – and we can’t wait to get started” – this despite the natural challenges that G10 parts machining is known for.
Thermoset laminates, for example, are incredibly versatile and come in many shapes and sizes. The choices you make if you’re working with an epoxy resin will vary when compared to phenolic, melamine, polyester or even silicone thermosetting resins. That’s why thermosets require only the steadiest of hands to make sure the job gets done properly – because the very makeup of the material (and thus, what you need to do to extract exactly what you need from it) will vary depending on the application.
Things get even more complicated when you’re talking about MIL-I-24768 – those insulation, plastic, laminated or thermosetting products that are eventually going to be used in military applications. The men and women of the United States Armed Forces often find themselves working in some of the harshest conditions on the planet. They’re putting their lives on the line daily to keep us all safe – they need to know that the equipment they use will do the same for them. But still, the choices you need during the CNC machining process need to be based not just on experience, but the end use of the components themselves – which is why you need a partner who has the special capabilities to tackle all of this and more.
G10 Machining for Exactly What You Need
At JMJ Profile, one of the ways that we guarantee we’re always able to get the machined parts you need the first time has to do with the quality systems and procedures we’ve put in place that help enormously to that end. We use “total traceability” protocols throughout the entirety of our production process, all so that we have the most accurate information to work from at all times. We inspect all raw materials to make sure that everything is up to par before the process begins.
We also employ state-of-the-art technology to help verify tolerances to within literally 1/10,000ths of an inch. To control every aspect of the environment in our production areas to cut down on the possibility of contamination. To put ourselves in a better position to change order adjustments on-the-fly, all so that you can rest easy knowing that every last component will meet your exact requirements.
In the end, we do this because we want all of our customers to understand that they’re getting exactly what they need, exactly when they need it, absolutely no exceptions. Yes, there are certain challenges that are inherent in the G10 machining process – many of which are outlined above.
But you don’t have to suddenly become G10 parts machining experts. That’s what we’re for. Let us handle all of the unique requirements of your next big job so that you can get back to focusing on the most important thing of all: running your business and going out of your way to please your own customers.
