Parts Manufacturing for Aerostructures
An Expert Approach to These Key Structural Components
Because aerostructure components range from large, complex assemblies to individual structural components (doors, hatches, etc.), we also apply a range of technical skills in the manufacture of these complex parts. Our skills and equipment allow us to effectively produce aerospace parts and components for both civilian and military aircraft.
Aerostructures for Military Vs. Civilian Aircraft
The materials and designs behind aerostructure components for military aircraft and civilian aircraft differ, but the essential technical skills and the equipment necessary to produce these parts are quite similar.
Aerostructure components and systems in general refer to the frame of a fuselage, empennage, wing, or other flight control surface, and vary in size and complexity. Materials also range from an array of metallic materials to composites, but most commonly utilize aircraft-grade aluminum.
We leverage our expertise in process engineering and 5-axis CNC programming to manufacture these highly-complex, build-to-print metallic components.
Achieving the Production Volume to Meet Your Needs
At Primus, we’re uniquely positioned to meet high-volume production needs as well as short-run, highly-complex structural component production. For shorter runs, we apply 5-axis milling of titanium, aluminum, and exotic alloys to meet the ever-changing demands of the commercial defense market.
