Precision, Innovation, Options, Cost Savings

Our work speaks for itself and our customers willingly talk about us!

“A recent job required precise chevron-notching of several bars made from different materials. That seems simple enough but we had some unique concerns. Cost was an issue so we needed alternative approaches, but we were already behind schedule. Bomas was very helpful in not only discussing options but showing us samples for initial testing with no delay in overall scheduling.”Materials Engineer, Northeast Materials Manufacturer

 

Optical Comparator – used for intricate measurement of grooves (notches) and a variety of other precision machined shapes. An optical comparator (often called just a comparator in context) or profile projector is a device that applies the principles of optics to the inspection of machined parts.

 

Chevron Notch Cut Into a Ceramic Material Bar

Machined per ASTM C 1421 standards. This photo illustrates the actual Chevron-Notch we machine into a bar. This is a Standard Test Method of Fracture Toughness of Advanced Ceramics.

“CHEVRON” refers to the actual shape of the notch after machining.
