SMEPI, the art of bar turning

Bar turning concerns the manufacture of all types of mechanical parts of all sizes. SMEPI has been carrying out this kind of action for more than ten years. It is a major player in the design of mechanical components and all-material bar turning . It is responsible for the supply of several companies in the field of aeronautics, railways and even nuclear.

Why contact an industrial machining specialist?

The manufacture of mechanical parts intended for industrial use is a field reserved for experts. Indeed, the harsh conditions to which the elements created during their use and their life will be subjected require that they be designed according to precise methods on the one hand, and from specific materials on the other hand.

So, regardless of your field of activity in the industry, calling on a specialized professional is more than recommended to create the parts for your custom production devices and equipment. This approach is preferable to ensure the performance and longevity of your machines as well as the proper functioning of the mechanisms on which the parts will be placed. An expert will be able to advise you on the materials best suited to your project and choose the machining method you need to manufacture the parts. For example, a specialist in all-material bar turning is a better choice, especially for the creation of small precision parts.

Bar turning: how does it work?

To produce high-precision mechanical parts, specialized manufacturers use the all-material bar turning method. With this one obtains parts of 0.05 mm and even less than 0.01 mm. To carry out this type of operation, modern, state-of-the-art bar turning lathes are used. When the dimensions of the components are a few thousandths of a millimeter, a heat treatment is carried out beforehand. Then the parts are modified or readjusted. At the end of these steps, a surface treatment is carried out.

Turned parts are used by a large number of sectors of activity, to name only the automobile, electrical engineering, precision optics, watchmaking, aeronautics, etc. to subcontractors specializing in all material bar turning are now very strict on the quality of the products ordered. They want to integrate them directly and as quickly as possible into their assembly lines. This is why bar turners today offer comprehensive services to their customers.

This is the case with our company SMEPI. We take care of the study, the selection of materials, the production of prototypes, the manufacture, the assembly and the control of the mechanical parts ordered. Strict control enters the manufacturing phases of mechanical parts. After the machining of the latter, mechanical tests are carried out in order to verify their resistance to various stresses and their correct functioning.

The advantages of bar turning by SMEPI

All material bar turning is an extremely precise operation. SMEPI is a firm active in the field of machining and we ensure that all manufactured parts are well crafted. While removing material from the block of steel, brass, zinc, titanium for example, we make sure to manufacture as many parts as possible from the block in question. So the more you produce on a large scale, the more you will be earning.

To do this, before material extraction, our experts carry out analyzes and set up a strategy in order to intelligently cut the blocks. Cutting is thus done with great accuracy limiting the appearance of chips. With this method, we avoid unnecessary losses of materials which can weigh heavily on the invoice. You should know that, more chips mean, more expenses. We therefore take care to optimize the use of resources.

In regards to

In the field of precision machining, we have more than 10 years of presence to our credit, we are recognized nationally. In terms of precision mechanics, especially in the machining of large, medium and small mechanical parts and shapes, SMEPI stands out as the benchmark company to trust. We rely on a competent and experienced team and a large reserve of materials always available to ensure the quality of the parts, speed and respect of deadlines. SMEPI has all the key resources to assist you throughout your project from the study phase to heat and surface treatment, including: assembly, study, heat and surface treatment, prototyping, the choice of raw materials, machining ... and finally, a strict verification of the worked parts. Our components are aimed at professionals belonging to many fields, among others: petrochemicals, energy, special machines, transport, chemicals, nuclear power, etc.
