Custom Fluidics & Part Design

VAS manufactures a wide array of plastic components and bonded manifolds that manage fluid and gas distribution for critical diagnostic machines. We are experts in manifold design, valves, fittings, tubing, and pumps. We understand fluid dynamics, fluid path optimization, and the control of fluids in anlytical and diagnostic instrumentation. VAS can assist your engineering team with resources that expedite new designs and prove out new concepts with our quick turn product development builds.

    Our manufacturing facility is equipped to produce high precision engineering component parts in plastics and other non-ferrous materials VAS provides customers with both straight machined and turned components. Our proprietary machining processes are a combination of in-house custom machine tool and fixture design that allow us to maximize any 4th or 5th axis machining requirements. Our CNC machining centers are kept in tight calibration and can repeatedly hold tolerances of +/- .0002”. VAS provides a standard approach with its CNC equipment, which means our customers don’t have wonder about variance between CNC machines since all of our CNC centers are of the same brand.
