SOMERVILLE, MA: Another highly sought-after Bomas capability is the machining of intricate custom machined fixtures to test advanced ceramic components.
According to Bomas General Manager, Mark Annese, “We are especially proud of our work with test fixtures. The proprietary nature of this work means we don’t always know exactly what test each fixture will eventually be required to perform; but we do know they must meet exacting, consistent specifications every time. It comes down to trust. And that’s why we get so many requests from engineers for consultation and machining of their intricate test fixtures.”
Annese added, “Personally, I enjoy machining test fixtures because they require so many of our precision skills. Every fixture is unique and each one is custom machined to exacting specifications. They can be simple or complex in design, but they always require various slotting, drilling and grinding techniques. The fixtures not only need to be precise, they must endure the test of time. The fact that so many engineers keep returning for our expertise, input and machining skills is testimony that we can meet their simple requests and their intricate challenges. It always comes back to trust.”
Known for over 50 years as specialists in MOR Bars and Chevron Notch Specimens, Bomas has built a worldwide reputation for precision machining of all advanced ceramics and composite materials.
