The military and defense sector requires rugged and reliable parts and equipment that will perform even in the harshest operating environments. Military buyers and contracts expect optimal quality at an affordable price point, which can present challenges for many manufacturers and suppliers. With global defense spending continually on the rise, qualified suppliers have made significant investments in modernized machining solutions that can handle durable metals and difficult alloys.
At Aluminum Die Casting Co, Inc., (ADC), we have invested in the equipment and expertise necessary to provide our customers with high-quality components used in military applications. We have experience working with military OEMs and suppliers to manufacture parts and assemblies used in mission-critical military aerospace equipment.
CNC Milling and Turning Benefits for Military Aerospace
While all military stakeholders demand exceptional performance capabilities from their equipment, the military aerospace field often must adhere to even more stringent requirements for the parts and assemblies used in cargo planes, fighter jets, helicopters, long-range weaponry, and more. The mission-critical nature of these solutions leaves little or no room for error in their parts and components.
Meeting the needs of the military aerospace sector requires the use of advanced computer numerical control (CNC) mills and turning machines that can handle the narrow tolerance ranges and design complexities of military aircraft and equipment in an array of shapes and sizes. The automated nature of CNC equipment lowers labor costs and optimizes production, helping manufacturers to lower the overall cost of production and pass on the savings to defense industry customers.
CNC milling and CNC turning are used in the production of numerous types of military aerospace equipment, such as:
- Aerospace couplers
- Aircraft seat frames
- Helicopter components
- Missile components
- Retainer rings
