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.

Surface finish achievable with EDM

Nov 16, 2017

Surface finish is often called out on part prints. Sometimes it’s because it influences appearance, more often because it affects how surfaces slide over one another. Bearing surfaces and those used for sealing are examples of where finish is important. An EDM surface finish is different to that produced by conventional machining. Cutting processes produce…

Let EDM be your secret weapon

Oct 26, 2017

Thin walls, tight internal radii, tapers, deep blind pockets in hard materials. Sometimes it seems designers are just trying to find the limits of what manufacturing can do. It’s as if they’re hoping manufacturing will say, “Can’t be done.” The thing is, if manufacturing only has access to conventional machining processes they’re probably right. Some…

How accurate is wire EDM?

Oct 4, 2017

It’s only natural that designers and toolmakers should ask about the precision of EDM. Knowing the capabilities of the process informs design decisions and influences costs. Whether the parts being made are surgical instruments, extrusion dies, or aerospace components, it’s important to know what tolerances are achievable. Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer. While accuracies of…

Wire EDM is Not Just for Tooling

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…
