This part is a special quench and tempered steel shaft used as a differential pinion. There is a very special surface finish that is required after a nitriding compound has been added to the outside. This polishing operation provides a super finish on the outside diameters to near mirror finishes.
This precision machined part is a hydraulic assembly that actually contains 3 component parts: a steel nut, a steel adjustment screw, and a rubber o-ring.
A common failure mode in many manufacturing companies is missing or improperly placed o-rings within sealing areas. (This can cause major line and field failures depending on the assembly application.)
The E.J. Basler Company has developed a special laser light poke-yoke fixture that eliminates this failure mode.
