New Precision Solutions by Hyperion® offers start-to-finish hard material component solutions
WORTHINGTON, Ohio — Hyperion Materials & Technologies, a leading global materials science company that develops hard and super-hard materials for a wide variety of industries and applications, announced today the launch of a new business that will work directly with customers to design and produce finished, precision components.
Precision Solutions by Hyperion® is a first-of-its-kind business capable of creating highly specialized 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 that keep the energy, manufacturing, electronics, medical and aerospace sectors running smoothly.
“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,” said 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 0.002 inches [0.051 mm] in diameter; drilling holes as small as 0.001 inches [0.025 mm] in diameter; lapping surfaces by tenths of a micron; and achieving tolerances of 3/100,000ths of an inch. It is also capable of creating larger parts, such as complex tungsten carbide forms up to 14 inches [355 mm] in diameter and 31 inches [787 mm] long. Precision Solutions engineers can help companies prototype products and design parts with complex geometries, such as hollow spaces and recessed surfaces.
Precision Solutions by Hyperion combines the materials science and engineering expertise of Hyperion Materials & Technologies with the manufacturing, grinding and finishing services offered by several recently acquired companies. Those companies include 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.
“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,” Varghese said. “These shared values make them welcome additions to the Hyperion family and makes the launch of Precision Solutions an ideal match.”
