Materials science company Hyperion Materials & Technologies, Worthington, Ohio, USA, has launched Precision Solutions by Hyperion® – a new business division that will work directly with customers to design and produce finished precision components.
Precision Solutions by Hyperion will focus on creating highly specialised tungsten carbide, industrial diamond, ceramic, high-speed steel and cubic boron nitride products, owning the process from raw material to mass production of finished components. Product capabilities include a wide range of wear-resistant components, spray nozzles and seats, blades and knives, core pins, precision dies and gauges, and many other components within the manufacturing, electronics, medical and aerospace sectors.
“By controlling the entire value chain for these incredibly intricate, precise components, we’re setting the standard for materials expertise, convenience and speed — not to mention an unparalleled degree of quality control,” stated Biju Varghese, senior vice president of Engineered Solutions at Hyperion. “We offer customers a single point of contact and close partnership through the entire process, from material design to application support to precision manufacturing.”
Engineering and producing precision parts is at the core of the Precision Solutions model. The business is capable of machining pins as small as 0.051 mm in diameter; drilling holes as small as 0.025 mm in diameter; lapping surfaces by tenths of a micron; and achieving tolerances of 0.762 mm. It is also capable of creating larger parts, such as complex tungsten carbide forms up to 355 mm in diameter and 787 mm long. Precision Solutions engineers can help companies prototype products and design parts with complex geometries, such as hollow spaces and recessed surfaces.
Hyperion states that its new Precision Solutions business combines the materials science and engineering expertise of Hyperion Materials & Technologies with the manufacturing, grinding and finishing services offered by several recently acquired companies including GLE-Precision, a cutting-edge global precision machining leader; Crafts Technology, a provider of tailor-made cemented tungsten carbide solutions; and Aggressive Grinding Service, a precision carbide and ceramic grinding business.
Varghese added, “These companies have long shared Hyperion’s passion for safety, employee engagement, customer experience and growth, as well as providing best-in-class services and products. These shared values make them welcome additions to the Hyperion family and makes the launch of Precision Solutions an ideal match.”
