In order to ensure compliance with technical standards and quality requirements in this area, the use of a specialist is essential for the manufacture of custom flanges . These mechanical parts have a critical function in the various branches of industry and must guarantee optimum performance. Update with SMEPI , manufacturer of high precision mechanical components.

Made-to-measure flange manufacturing: important economic and safety issues

Mechanical flanges are parts intended to securely connect piping elements. Round or rectangular, they have holes to accommodate a greater or lesser number of bolts as required. Depending on the project, they must generally be created to adapt to the specific needs of manufacturers. Indeed, machining parts are rarely produced in series or standard.

Custom flanges find a host of applications in industrial settings and production sites. Indispensable to the tightness of a pipe connection, they are an essential link in the distribution and transport of liquids, fluids or gases in the oil, food, chemical and even nuclear industries. Like other mechanical parts, it is important to choose the connection flange that really meets your needs and to avoid additional costs. Thus, blank flanges will be more suitable for sealing the end of a pipe system or pressure tank, while lap flanges offer more convenience in the event that frequent disassembly is required. Using an experienced manufacturer will allow you to know the specifics of each type of flange and to refine your choice.  

The choice of a service provider for the manufacture of custom flanges takes into account many criteria to guarantee the reliability of the installations. It should not be forgotten that the slightest inaccuracy or even the use of poor quality materials leads to particularly serious accidents. The economic impacts are considerable as are the real risks concerning the safety of people on the site.

To choose your service provider, you will therefore have to call on reference manufacturers who are able to provide you with all the necessary quality guarantees. Reference customers, certifications, years of experience, the equipment used, the production processes implemented or the post-production quality control system are all parameters to be taken into account. Of course, you will also have to analyze the proposed prices to optimize costs, but above all, it will be essential to ensure the delivery times of the parts ordered so as not to delay construction sites.
