Let’s now give you some insight how Norck achieves custom component manufacturing.

What is Custom component manufacturing?

Custom component manufacturing designates a set of fabrication methods used to manufacture a custom part in small quantities. Custom manufacturing is used in the following sectors:

 - Medical: medical devices, surgical tools, implants, orthosis, and prosthesis
 - Industrial: Special machines, welded structures, gears, shafts, jigs and fixtures, and enclosures.
 - Hardware: Hinges, handles, tools, screws, nuts, rivets, plastic bearings
 - Aerospace and automotive: Bodies of aircraft and cars, electrical cables, prototypes, interior command units
 -  Consumer products: Home appliances, cooking utensils, PC enclosures, jewelry Enclosures, and products' bodies}
 -  Education: Desks, laboratory equipment, Conceptual prototypes

On Demand Custom Component Manufacturing

What are the advantages of Custom component manufacturing?

Custom component manufacturing offers many advantages over medium and high-volume production:

• Customized components: As a client, you don't have to adjust your products to what exists in the market. We will help you manufacture parts and assemblies the way you want them.

• Convenient for startups and small businesses: Custom component manufacturing is ideal for startups and small businesses since it helps them turn any idea into a tangible product and test the market before diving into mass production.

• Lower production costs:
A custom part might cost more per part than medium or high-volume production. But it is cost-effective for two reasons:
   -  It doesn’t require a big budget for development, tooling, and fabrication
   -  It can be manufactured in smaller quantities.

• Highly customizable:
As the name suggests, a custom plastic part is customizable. Your product can be as custom as you can imagine.

• Convenient for startups and small businesses:
Custom component manufacturing is ideal for startups and small businesses since it helps them turn any idea into a tangible product and test the market before diving into mass production.

How is it fabricated?

Norck offers an extensive choice of materials for custom component manufacturing:

1. Custom metal component:

A. Additive Manufacturing

•  Metal 3D Printing(DMLS): It is a process used to produce custom parts by fusing metal powder particles using a laser beam. It uses different metal materials such as:
 - Titanium                   
 -  Stainless steel                       
 - Aluminum
 - Nickel                       
 - Cobalt                                 
 - CopperPlatinum                  
 - Gold                                     
 - Silver


B. Subtractive manufacturing

• Sheet metal fabrication: It is a set of manufacturing methods of cutting and forming metal sheets to produce parts. The mainly used materials are:
 - Steel alloy
 - Stainless steel
 - Aluminium 

• Tube bending: Tube bending is a set of techniques to bend straight tubes into different shapes. The process can be performed by using cold or hot methods. Generally, the round stock is used, but rectangular tubes and pipes can also be bent.

A post-process can be mandatory to remove burrs. It can also be used with laser tube cutting to add holes and shapes or to cut the edges

• CNC machining: CNC machining (Computer Numerical Controlled machining) designates a process that uses a computer to control the trajectory of the machining tool. It employs many machining techniques, such as milling, turning, and drilling.

• Used materials are:
 - 
Titanium 
 - Stainless steel 
 - Aluminum
 - Nickel                        
 - Cobalt                         
 - Copper

• Milling: It is a process that uses a rotating tool to remove material from the fixed workpiece. There are two types of milling, horizontal and vertical milling.

• Turning:This method uses a lathe to turn workpieces at high speeds and a tool with a special shape to remove layers of material from the workpiece. The workpiece shape is generally revolutionary. If the workpiece is long enough, an extra part is used to support the weight of the workpiece.

• Drilling: It is a process used to make homes in the workpiece. The holes are generally perpendicular to the surface but can have angles with special tooling. This process includes taping, counterboring, and countersinking.

• EDM: It is a thermal cutting process of metal parts using a high voltage electrical discharge, hence the name EDM (Electrical discharge machining). In this technique, electrical discharges (sparks) heat a metallic shape that engraves through the workpiece. EDM can use a wire instead of a shape to cut through the workpiece (wire EDM).
 - Titanium 
 - Stainless steel 
 - Aluminum

C. Formative manufacturing:

• Die casting: It is a process in which molten metal is fed into a mold cavity under high pressure. Mold is made from hardened steel and contains the shape of the component to be molded. The die-casting process is used for high and medium-volume production due to the high cost of mold fabrication.

We offer the following finishes for custom-manufactured metal parts:
 - 
Surface finish 
 - Deburring 
 - Plating
 - Anodizing
 - Heat treatment
 - Powder coating
 - Painting
 - Welding 
 - Riveting
 - Assembly
 - Testing

2. Custom plastic part

A. Additive manufacturing

•  Plastic 3D Printing: 
It is a process used to produce custom parts by printing layers of plastic materials. Plastic 3D Printing uses multiple methods to create custom plastic parts, and it is evolving. At Norck, we offer numerous 3D printing methods, such as FDM, SLA, SLS, Polyjet, Carbon DLS, and HP multijet fusion.

• Used plastic materials include:
 - 
ABS Like (resin)
 - PC Like (resin) 
 - PP
 - PP Like (resin) 
 - Nylon 
 - Silicone
 - TPU


B. Subtractive manufacturing

• CNC machining: 
CNC machining (Computer Numerical Controlled machining) designates a process that uses a computer to control the trajectory of the machining tool. It employs many machining techniques, such as milling, drilling, and cutting.

• CNC Turning: This method uses a lathe to turn workpieces at high speeds and a tool with a special shape to remove layers of material from the workpiece. The workpiece shape is generally revolutionary. If the workpiece is long enough, an extra part is used to support the weight of the workpiece.

• CNC Milling: Milling is a process that uses a rotating tool to remove material from the fixed workpiece. There are two types of milling, horizontal and vertical milling.

• Used materials are:
 - 
CPVC
 - HDPE
 - LDPE
 - PC
 - PP
 - PVC
 - PS
 - PEI
 - PET
 - PMMA
 - PTFE
 - PS
 - Nylon


C. Formative manufacturing

• Injection molding: 
In injection molding, molten plastic pellets are fed into a mold cavity under high pressure. After the plastic solidifies, the mold is opened to eject the part. Mold is made from hardened steel and contains the shape of the component to be molded. The Injection molding process is used for high and medium-volume production.

• Urethane Casting: Urethane Casting is a plastic molding process used to duplicate a master component submerged into liquid silicone. After the silicone mold solidifies, it is opened, and the master part is extracted. The mold is closed and injected with urethane, then gets heated to harden the urethane and extracted. Urethane Casting is used for low-volume production.

• Liquid silicone rubber molding: It is a rubber molding process that injects silicone and color into a mold, which is heated to solidify, then the part gets ejected. The mold is made from hardened steel and contains the body of the part to be molded. The liquid silicone rubber molding process is used for high and medium-volume production.

• We offer the following finishes for custom-manufactured parts:
 - 
Textures
 - Surface finish (smooth or matte)
 - Inserting threads
 - Pad printing
 - Laser engraving 
 - Welding
 - Clear coating
- Plating
- Assembly
- Testing

Waterjet, laser, and plasma cutting: It is a set of cutting methods that use heat or water to cut through all the materials listed above any type of material to produce a part or product.
