What is Aerospace Machining?

Aerospace machining is the process by which parts and components are manufactured to eventually be assembled into aerospace machine components.

The aerospace industry requires some of the most complex technology and innovation that humans have conceived. From the commercial airline flights to the Apollo Command Module that brought us to the moon, these machines that define the aerospace industry are certainly something to marvel at.

PFI is an expert in intricate aerospace fabrication. We can help serve your aerospace engineering and manufacturing needs.

Aerospace tool machining and fabrication

Aerospace Industry Overview

Aerospace refers to the exploration and flight beyond the Earth’s atmosphere. Aerospace engineering and the aerospace industry began with the development of the first airplanes back in 1903. We have seen incredible strides in aerospace technology, including the rise of commercial aircraft, the development of the jet engine, expeditions to Mars, and vehicles that can travel faster than the speed of sound.

None of these advancements could be made without every aerospace component working together in perfect precision. Please contact PFI for a quote on your next Aerospace machining project!

PFI’s Aerospace Fabrication Equipment and Process

PFI Advanced Equipment Manufacturing has a long history of working with aerospace engineers and manufacturers to create custom, unique and specialized components for a variety of aircraft.

During our first conversation, we try to understand the project and learn what design aspects you wish to achieve. We pool our vast knowledge of raw materials and fabrication processes to determine the best methods to create the necessary components. We use a number of fabrication processes, including cutting, bending, milling, and drilling to manufacture the exact parts and pieces that will ultimately make up the aircraft. We also incorporate the precision and accuracy of computers with CNC Machining (Computerized Numerical Control).

How Does PFI Utilize Aerospace CNC Machining?

CNC Machining is a process that allows us to input design instructions into a calibrated computer to get consistent and precise fabrication. The machining process cuts the raw material into the appropriate shape with the assistance of a computer-controlled mill.

A single aircraft vehicle can consist of millions of individual parts, PFI incorporates CNC machining into its manufacturing process to ensure each aerospace part works flawlessly. This process allows for the creation of highly precise and consistent aerospace components that will withstand the demands of the aerospace industry. We control this process with a CMM probe in a climate-controlled environment to ensure the highest quality of the parts are being maintained.
