Mission-critical applications within the aerospace industry require durable, high-performance components of superior quality. While equipment failure in another sector might simply result in system downtime, there is no margin for error in aerospace as faulty parts could result in injury or even death. To that end, manufactured components for the industry must undergo stringent testing and ultimately meet exacting regulatory standards. Computer numerical control (CNC) machining from KDML Precision Machine offers the precision necessary to supply consistent, dependable components for the industry.

CNC Machining Within the Aerospace Industry

CNC machining is ideal for aerospace-level quality because the process can achieve repeatable, complex parts that can hold supremely tight tolerances. Utilizing metal, plastic, or other materials, this subtractive manufacturing method can create parts with an optimal strength-to-weight ratio for aerospace applications. Both new components and replacement parts are easy to produce with uniformity and, given the automation capabilities of CNC processes, CNC equipment can do this quickly while generating highly accurate, error-free end products with minimal waste. This also equates to time savings as well as cost efficiency from boosted productivity, reduced scrap, and minimal downtime. The flexibility in part design and material options, high level of precision, and capability for scalable operations make cutting-edge CNC machining ideal for virtually all divisions of the sector and their applications.

Aerospace CNC Machining Applications

The aerospace industry utilizes versatile CNC manufacturing to produce new system components as well as replacement parts, helping the sector to stay abreast of innovations and technological advancements. In addition to creating accurate and repeatable end products, CNC machining also has applications in tooling manufacturing. High-quality tooling helps aerospace companies correctly and efficiently install and maintain equipment.

The aerospace industry uses CNC machining for products like:

  • Actuators
  • Electrical connectors
  • Fuel bodies and fuselage components
  • Housings, casings, and enclosures
  • Hydraulic manifolds
  • Landing gear
  • Motion controls
  • Transmissions
  • Turbines

Modern technology in the form of 3D and computer-aided design (CAD) software further expands the versatility of CNC machines, and advancements in inspection processes have enhanced quality control capabilities.
