3 Tips for Staying Compliant and Profitable in Aerospace Parts Production
The aerospace industry has been on the upswing for a few years now, and all indications are that orders for parts will continue to increase. Parts manufacturers looking to capitalize on these opportunities must implement processes and techniques that will help keep them both compliant and profitable.
The aerospace and defense industry is unlike many other industries because manufacturers must meet numerous compliance requirements from the government as well as their own internal standards of excellence. These stringent requirements run the gamut from materials usage, counterfeit parts, manufacturing procedures and even hiring practices, and they make machining structural parts, engine components, landing gear or systems controls out of difficult-to-machine materials even more complicated. Here are a few tips that can help you produce high quality parts that are in compliance – all while remaining profitable. More >
Going Big to Solve Common Large Part Machining Issues
Shops processing for industries such as oil and gas, aerospace and heavy equipment need bigger, high-performance machines to stay competitive. Because much of the challenge with large parts has to do with producing as much as possible in a single setup, multiple-setup operations are often inefficient and time consuming. Multi-tasking functionality helps machining centers accomplish this, and should be essential in any large part operation.
Manufacturers working with this type of machining must also be aware of their worktable’s configuration. Along with utilizing Multi-Tasking capabilities, large part processing also requires moving parts as little as possible, which requires a flexible, capable worktable. More >
