Aerostructures

Aerostructures components and systems represent the frame of a fuselage, empennage, wing or other flight control surface and may range from large, complex assemblies to individual structural components like doors, hatches, rings or ribs.  Materials vary from an array of metallic materials to composites but most commonly utilize aircraft grade aluminums.      

Primus Aerospace leverages its technical skills in process engineering and 5-axis CNC programming to manufacture these highly complex, build-to-print metallic components and combines it with our innovation in assembly expertise used for higher volume production needs.  We also have the capability for short run, highly complex structural components requiring 5-axis milling of titanium, aluminum and/or exotic alloys to meet the ever-changing demands of the commercial, defense, and space markets.  This includes rapid prototyping of metallic structural components, with equipment and programming resources immediately available.  Our core competency takes a new component design from development into production serving our customers with engineering support for manufacturability, consistency of quality, reduced cost and shortened leadtime.  From conceptual design to first piece approval/certification throughout production lifecycle, Primus Aerospace offers your turnkey, value-added solution.
