AEROSPACE / DEFENSE MANUFACTURING & MACHINING

AEROSPACE / DEFENSE MACHINING SERVICES

The aerospace and defense industries include satellites, airline manufacturers, orbital spacecraft, NASA, Military and more. They require precise parts that are either not generally available to the public or they are in need of a number of unique parts and pieces for equipment. This means the parts these industries require have wide ranging needs and specs. On one side there is a need for mass produced parts, while on the other, there are unique spacecraft and rockets that may need small runs of very specialized parts.

TYPICAL FIELDS OF APPLICATION

We assist our clients in the aerospace industry in a number of different ways.

icon

Rapid Prototyping

Our Rapid Prototyping services are often used to create new aerospace and defense parts. These prototypes can be tested and changed as needed before being mass produced.

Highly Accurate

Highly Accurate Precision Cuts

Our machines can very precisely cut and finish pieces down to very small measurements. Exact measurements are often required in the aerospace and defense fields.

icon

Small or One-Off Pieces

We can create small run prototyping or even single pieces for unique projects. This is often necessary in test craft, satellite testing or spacecraft.

BENEFITS FOR AEROSPACE & DEFENSE INDUSTRIES

Here are just a few benefits we offer the aerospace and defense industries.

icon

Cut a Variety of Materials

Our techniques can be used to cut a wide variety of materials. This includes the specialized metals that the aerospace and defense industries utilize.

icon

24/7 Production Runs

Because our machines are automated, they can work around the clock (24/7). We can rapidly create a large run of parts when needed.

icon

Traceability

Many industries require traceability of outside processing and material. Since we are 2001:9008 ISO certified we would be happy to provide certifications upon request.

One Stop Shop (Protecting I.P.)

When it comes to our aerospace and defense partner’s, intellectual property is one of our primary responsibilities to protect. Whereas many shops will outsource specialty EDM and Precision CNC Machining projects, here at Micropulse West we handle it all in house.

Wire EDM is Not Just for Tooling

Jan 30, 2017

You can think of wire EDM as the non-contact, 21st Century version of the fretsaw. A fretsaw is used to cut complex shapes from blocks of wood. The key to its versatility is the blade, which is essentially just an abrasive wire. Being thin and able to cut on all sides, the woodworker can turn it easily to follow…

Say “medical device manufacturing” and most people think of investment cast hip joints and replacement patellas. The reality is, medical devices range from, as the FDA says, “…tongue depressors and bedpans to … pacemakers … and laser surgical devices.” Some of these devices need electro-discharge machining (EDM) for their manufacture while many more need EDM…

What the World Would Be Like If Aerospace Precision Machining Didn’t Exist

Space may be the final frontier that scientists, engineers and explorers set their sights on today to discover strange new worlds that might support intelligent life and may one day allow for human colonies to thrive. Yet without the modern technologies and innovations offered by a precision metal machining company, life would be very different…
