VBN Components has developed a number of unique hard and wear resistant materials which are produced in Near-Net-Shape. This means that no soft machining is needed (sawing, drilling, milling, etc.), but that only finalisation is required, which is done by conventional grinding or Electric Discharge Machining (EDM).
The process allows geometries that are not possible to produce with conventional machining technologies, which gives you the opportunity to choose the best material for your end application, instead of a material that only suits your manufacturing methods. Components up to 200 x 200 x 380 mm can be made with this technique, depending on geometry.
