High Speed Machining & Monolithic Part Construction for the General Aviation Industry
(click on thumbnail to enlarge)
Southern Precision Machining is a dedicated provider of precision machined components with extensive experience in aerospace and aviation applications. In the project profiled here, SPM was contracted by a customer in the aviation industry to manufacture an access door, used in a general aviation application. A 3/4” aluminum plate was used for this monolithic part. SPM machined this part using a high speed horizontal work center, with vacuum fixtures. A profile tolerance of .030” was maintained along with .014 true position for the fastener locations. Custom captive fasteners were installed along with the name plate. Prior to hardware assembly the part is anodized, primed and finished with a top coat for longevity and corrosion resistance. SPM procured the name plate from a customer approved source. This is a model based definition part, from model to product.
Dimensions for the finished part were 3/4” thick, 10” in width, and 26” in length. This project was completed after a turnaround time of 10 weeks, and an annual shipment of 22 units are sent to the customer.
