Oil Level Indicator Image

Oil Level Indicator

This oil level indicator is initially pressed from sheet material as a blank, using our dedicated aerospace presses. The profile and text is milled onto the face of the blank due to the importance of its positioning, which could not be achieved using other manufacturing methods. The indicator is then sent out for plating and painting to protect the component during its operational life, as it will be constantly immersed in oil.
