Functional Coatings and Tight Tolerances: No Need to Worry About a Costly Redesign

Producing quality product within a specified tolerance is a battle that every manufacturer, in every industry, fights every day.

Design engineers have the task of determining how tight of a tolerance should be allowed when developing a part and usually operate in the mind set of “the tighter the better.” In some cases, unnecessarily tight tolerances just drive up the cost of a component unnecessarily, but that is a debate for a different day.

It is understood that a component designed to need a functional coating would have its tolerances accordingly compensated. However, if the component you’re dealing with Continue reading Functional Coatings and Tight Tolerances: No Need to Worry About a Costly Redesign
