Analytical Components LLC is precision at work for you by providing access to the precise hard materials you require. Component processing, assembly, and final verification of critical dimensions provide superior value to their customers. AC offers a broad selection of hard material components such as pump pistons, optical guides, check valve seats, precision ruby balls and sapphire windows. Part of AC’s core competency lies in our experience with interference fits, allowing us to specialize in combining materials such as synthetic sapphire and various metals without the use of epoxies or fasteners.
Analytical Components Expertise
Analytical Components can suggest existing products that allow you to leverage economy of scale and minimize cost associated with developing new processes and buying small volumes of raw materials. However, they can produce a variety of custom metal designs coupled with hard materials, so customers are not limited to our standard products.
