Custom Manufacturing of Compressor Pistons

Large diameter pistonDay Piston Company was approached by a client from the industrial compressor industry to manufacture large diameter aluminum pistons. To produce these pistons, we needed to construct a complete manufacturing cell. Our skilled and experienced engineering staff designed the system and our team built the highly-engineered tools and work holding fixtures that this project required.

This piston was manufactured using our state-of-the-art, close tolerance CNC lathes and mills along with machine tools such as bushing presses, drilling machines, and pinhole sizing machines. Constructed from aluminum, the piston measured 8" x 6" and weighed 8 lbs. Each piston was visually and dimensionally inspected to ensure that we fulfilled all of our client's requirements. Day Piston also employs a TS 16949 quality system that controls all internal processes, guaranteeing that we would be able to handle the client's aggressive delivery schedule.
