Saving a Pump Shaft
from Failure

The Situation

A customer’s metal-injected molded extractor required an additional machining operation to finish it, but both the target price and tolerances were extremely tight.  

The Challenge

How could Unity finish the needed part while ensuring the correct tolerances and staying at a predetermined price? 

The Unity Solution

After researching and weighing options, Unity decided to purchase a new high-speed mill with a robot loader system that would address the part needed and run autonomously, making it possible to manufacture the high quantities required. 

We engineered precise fixtures and produced them to meet the high-volume demand while consistently achieving the high tolerances necessary.  


The Unity team put the wheels in motion to deliver a lasting solution. Our engineers, coupled with the proper equipment, exceeded print tolerances and had thousands of pieces to the customer every month within the target price.
