Tight Tolerance Machined Parts for Scientific Instruments
Precision Metal Parts for Scientific Instruments
Scientific Instrument Machining
Petersen Precision has the specialized manufacturing capabilities to create extremely tight tolerance parts and components for scientific instruments. These instruments can be highly sensitive and therefore require parts with incredibly precise dimensions to ensure proper operation.
We have the skills, experience, and technology needed to produce even the most complex metal parts for scientific instruments with perfect precision and repeatability. Learn more about the other industries we serve and our value-added services.
CNC Machining Capabilities for Scientific Instruments
No matter how simple or complex your parts may be, no matter how tight the tolerances required, our production capabilities are up to the task. From flat, thin metal parts to highly intricate designs, we will deliver the perfect parts for your application. Our manufacturing processes include:
- Fine Blanking
- Precision Grinding
- Lapping & Honing
- Wire EDM

In-House Precision Manufacturing for Complex Parts
Our highly specialized production techniques enable us to manufacture precision-engineered parts with unmatched dimensional accuracy. We use round lapping to hold tolerances within one light-band of helium (≈30 millionths of an inch) to produce quadrupole rods for gas chromatography systems, and CNC and EDM machining to reliably reproduce high-level features on mechanical components.
Other areas of expertise include fine blanking, lapping/honing, precision grinding, and other advanced processes, all of which help us manufacture two-dimensional and three-dimensional metal parts that match our customers’ exact specifications.

Precision CNC Machining Metals Used
When machining scientific instruments, it’s important to consider the metals and materials used. We have extensive experience working with specialty metals and exotic alloys to meet unique material requirements. We consider several factors from shape memory, hardness, and limited to no coefficient of thermal expansion to ensure the correct materials are used when developing high-quality scientific instruments and tools for our customers.
At Petersen Precision, we manufacture anything from standard stainless steel to high-performance alloys:
