Component housings surround mechanical components of a sensor, valve, regulator or other types of mechanical componentry. It provides mechanical support for the moving components, a mechanical protection from the outside world for those internal components, and a fluid-tight container to hold the lubricant that bathes those components. Component housings are usually semi-complex components with intricate detail to ensure inner componentry functions properly.
At Currie & Warner we supply customers components in mid to high volume production batches. We usually finish the component in one operation ensuring quality is maintained such as concentricity tolerances. When all the turning is done whilst the component is still on the bar, concentricity is much easier to hold. A lot of other suppliers have multiple operations and can have issues holding tight tolerances.
