CNC Machining of Delrin Manifold & Fabricated Acrylic Chambers for the Medical and Research Industries

(Click on thumbnail to enlarge)

Based off of a customer supplied, 3D CAD drawing, Acrylic Art built a Delrin manifold complete with acrylic chambers. This instrument is used to introduce anesthesia and oxygen from a compressed gas source into diagnostic research, observation, and testing tanks for the medical research and development industry. Using our CNC 3-axis vertical milling center with indexing head, we were able to meet ultra precision tolerances of (±) 0.005 of an inch.

To begin this process, we first shell milled the manifold, as well as milled the unit's profile. In addition, we drilled all holes and performed all necessary counterboring and reaming operations. We then thread milled the manifold. We completed this project by fabricating, milling, and polishing the device's cast acrylic chambers to client specifications.

Machined from black Delrin material, the manifold measured 9.063 inches long, 6.125 inches wide, and 1.75 inches high. The manifold also possessed a smooth, 63 RMS finish. The cast acrylic chambers were designed for superior optical clarity and measured 1.750 inch outer diameter, with a .125 inch wall thickness.

Fulfilling all customer specifications, Acrylic Art was able to successfully build this important medical device to print. Exceeding our client's high expectations for quality, we delivered the finished manifold to our buyer's facility in Livermore, California.
