Cost Implications of Material Selection

For any component material selection has a crucial impact its life cycle and performance. There are a very wide range of different options to consider when selecting the right materials and processes.

Environment: First and foremost with any material selection, it’s important to consider the operating environment of the component in question. Factors such as temperature, moisture, likelihood of wear, sources of corrosion and contaminants will all play a major role in shaping the sorts of materials you will look to use.

Cost of Material: It goes without saying that the higher the corrosion/wear implications of a given environment the more likely it is you would look to materials that are harder/denser in nature. These materials do not necessarily come cheap however and it can sometimes be a balancing act between the function of the part and the cost.

Ease of Sourcing: Some grades and alloys are very easy to source but that is not the case for everything. Having a readily available source of material is key to your output, and one that is not likely to fluctuate with demand is also key. Materials such as Tungsten for example are now listed as Conflict Minerals and are becoming harder to find, require more paperwork and both of these factors will see a rise in price.

Cost of Manufacture: The material you select will also have an impact on the cost of manufacture. There has been a rise of components being made out of ‘hard’ and ‘exotic’ materials in the last fives years with the likes of Inconel and Monel becoming more popular. Although these materials offer enhanced wear and corrosion resistance, they are also harder to machine and will take more time which in itself will have costs associated.

Cost Of Finishing: In many cases components will undergo a metal finishing process in order to enhance its corrosion resistance further. These can be processes such as Electro-Plating, Anodising, Galvanising, Phosphating, Thermal Spray, Paint or Powder or any number of specialist coatings. In some cases it might be more cost effective to use a cheaper base material in combination with the right metal finishing process, in most cases however it is advisiable to seal off the base material from its environment and thus prolong part life.

Cost of Replacement: With all of the above factored in you should have a good idea on the turnaround and costs associated with producing a new part. Understanding the life cycle and cost of the part can guide you as to whether or not a different material/finishing option might be better. If you only have to replace a part every 3 years instead of 3 months then it can certainly be worth paying more and using more expensive materials or processes.

Cost of Downtime: The other major cost implication that often dwarfs all of the above is the cost of downtime associated with changing and replacing the component in question. If your parts fails and it’s on an Oil& Gas pipeline then potentially you are losing thousands of pounds every minute. Often this is the most critical factor in any conisideration for a change in design or material.

B&B Precision offer CNC Machining and HVOF coating of a wide range of components. Working in nearly all materials we offer a completely outsourced manufacturing service. We have been working with a number of manufacturers on development projects as they look for new ways to extend their part’s life. In one example we were able to redesign a Deep Drawing Tool utilising our in house Tungsten Carbide Coating which improved the part life by a factor of 30, making the new manufacturing/coating costs significantly better value then the cost of replacement and downtime. We are an ISO certified machinist based just off the M1 near Huddersfield but serving the whole UK.

Complete Supply of Valve Components

B&B Precision work closely with a number of customers in the valve industry. Our range of complimentary services allow us to supply complete components to your specifications.

What Sort of Materials?

As a sub-contract manufacturer we are used to dealing with a wide variety of materials and these would include Cast Steels, Cast Iron and Cast Magnesium that are often used in valves. We are also able to machine ‘hard’ and ‘exotic’ materials such as Inconels, Monels and Kovar. As well as working from your castings or free issue material we are also able to source our own and will provide full traceability of materials.

What Sort of Components?

We are able to work on a wide range of components for a variety of different valves. This would include common components such as: Yokes, Stems, Packing, Seat Rings, Gaskets, Guides, Plugs, Pistons, Shafts and Impellers. Working from your drawing we are able to produce complicated valve components that are often intricate in nature and require tight tolerances. Our maximum capacity is 1626mm x 813mm x 1062mm.

Finishing Options

As well as the full supply of material and machining of parts, B&B are also able to offer Thermal Spray Coating of Valve components. These coatings are most often used in extreme wear and corrosive environments with high temperatures. Common coating materials include Stellite 6 and Tungsten Carbide.  In many cases our Valve customers will come to us initially for the coating of their valves and then find it most cost and time effective to have us supply complete. Alongside our own in house HVOF coatings, we also have close partners who we use for additional finishing services such as Anodising and Painting.

If you are looking for a reliable machinist with many years of experience, then please get in touch. B&B are based just off the M1 in West Yorkshire but serve the whole UK. We are fully ISO certified and competitive in small to medium volumes.
