When people hear the word ‘boss’, no doubt they automatically think of their manager, but, for us, we think all things short and cylindrical.
In precision engineering, a boss is a short cylindrical part that is often used is often used to hold bearing, bushes & shafts.
Like in all workplaces, bosses have several uses. They can help to hold and align parts, keep them in place or act as a housing for another part. Often used with accompanying pins or shafts.
Rather like a manager, a boss will take charge in that it will hold a mechanical object in its correct place.
We make these cylindrical parts for a variety of industries. They require careful thought when being designed to ensure they remain strong and fit for purpose.
When in use, bosses project from the surface of a part, providing a safe place for another object to fit in to – usually a shaft.
