Beautifully CNC Machined Titanium Lanyard Rings

After many weeks, months, or years in development, every Engineer loves to finally hold in hand his/her work.  There is no better a reward than admiring something you’ve created (at least for the Engineering / Entrepreneurial minds) even more so if it works!  I am not sure why but I also thoroughly enjoy machining parts and watching parts being machined.

These are 6AL4V (Titanium) lanyard rings we had machined for a consumer product.  If I remember correctly, each one took about 30 minutes to complete on a 3-axis Vertical Machining Center.  These were beautifully machined by a very talented machinist and it showed.

Video Notes: This part is made from 6061-T6 aluminum and turned on a slant bed CNC gang lathe.  This was done by one of our partner factories located in Shenzhen, China.  We work with them quite often and have had great success thus far.  Check out the video annotations for details …
