Calculating the set-up cost for custom made spacers is the most difficult part. If you can interpret these parameters to your spacer, then you can have a price in a few minutes without the need to call or submit for a quote.
Our Primary formula for standard or semi-standard aluminum spacers is: Set-up Cost/Quantity + Cost per part (see below) = Your price per spacer.
Your set-up cost is $100 if the Spacer you need:
Is 6061-T6 Aluminum and
has the same outer diameter and inner diameter as a standard spacer you found on the website,
but you need a different length of any of the following lengths...
Your set-up cost is $200 if the Spacer you need:
Fits the description above
but you need a different length of any of the following***Length cannot exceed 9 times the hole size. Max length for #4 hole size is 1-1/32". Max length for #6 hole size is 1-1/4".
Or you need a different length than what is offered in the dropdown boxes and the length is less than 1.000".
Or is 6061-T6 Aluminum and
Has an outer diameter of 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 or 3/4" and
Is between 1/8" and 1.000" Long and
Has a non-standard hole size where the wall thickness between the hole and outer diameter is between .050 and .190
Add $100 to the set-up cost if the spacer you need:
Fits the description above
but you need a length between 1" and 1-1/2" that is not offered in the dropdown boxes. ***Length cannot exceed 10 times the hole size
Cost per part
Once you've figured out the cost of set-up:
Find the closest standard spacer offered on the website that is the same length or longer than the spacer you need, then find the price for the quantity you need.
Add the set-up cost and the standard part cost you found
We assume our standard tolerances of +/-.005 on length and OD, +/-.003 on the hole size.
You now have a total for your custom aluminum spacer.
