SENSOR INDUSTRY RAW MATERIALS

Sensor raw material alloys are designed specifically for the sensor field because they can hold up in very harsh, intense environments, for example, the high heat of a jet engine or a caustic, corrosive chemical application or extreme pressure of hydraulic systems. These raw materials are specific to the glass to metal sealing industry as well. These alloys need to be dynamic, functional, durable, and strong enough to function in  the harshest environments

Machining expertise with the following sensor raw materials:

  • Inconel
  • Titanium
  • Kovar
  • Stainless steel
  • Invar
  • Hastelloy
  • Monel
  • Nickel
  • Alloy 42/52
  • Copper
  • Molybdenum
  • Nitralloy

OUR PROCESS

  1. RFQ Submission: You (the customer) submits a print for a design.
  2. In-House Planning: Rehtek’s engineers decide how we’re going to make it, what machine we’ll use, what processes, how to eliminate risk, the cycle times, etc.
  3. Quote: A quote is offered to you.
  4. Work Order: If you accept the quote, it becomes a work order, and our engineers begin work.
  5. Model Creation: A solid model is generated, inspected, and reviewed with you.
  6. Machining: The part is then machined, inspected again, and has complete traceability when it leaves our facility.

PRODUCT TRACEABILITY

Our Enterprise Resource Planning System, or ERP, is done through Shoptech MFG. This software platform allows us to digitalize our entire process, from estimate to quote, machining to final inspection, all the way to billing. Every step is completely controlled and contained within this ERP, making your product 100% trackable and traceable.
