Flight Critical, Micro-Machined Aerospace Parts Manufacturing
The aerospace industry requires precise workmanship, timely delivery, and careful attention to quality requirements. Flight-critical micro-machined parts manufactured for Aerospace Industry operations must be held to the highest standards, and we recognize that components that do not meet these standards can be a detriment to the industry as well as the public they serve. This is why attention to detail and precision is our number one priority, not only for these flight critical parts but for all components we manufacture at DM2.
Some of the challenges we regularly overcome while machining parts for the aerospace industry include:
- Burr control: Excessive burrs could cause a part to not seat properly in its final assembly
- Smooth finishes: Many of our aerospace parts go into assemblies that require very smooth finishes – 16 RMA or better – to fit correctly
- Tight tolerances: many of our aerospace parts go into assemblies that require tight tolerances (less than .001 total variance) to function
- Difficult materials with poor machinability: Aerospace parts require difficult materials including:
- 321 stainless steel
- Haynes alloys
- Plus many other low machinability alloys necessary for aerospace components
AS9100 is the international Quality Management System standard for the Aviation, Space and Defense Industry created by the IAQG, and DM² has established and maintains a QMS certified compliant to AS9100 requirements. These requirements include those in risk assessment and mitigation, document control and record keeping, material and process lot traceability, inspection and process controls, and other considerations of vital importance to the aerospace industry. In addition to AS9100 certification, DM2 maintains ITAR registration and can provide compliance when in contact with parts used in military applications.
