MACHINING

High-tech aerospace and commercial products are typically very complex due to the wide variety of services necessary for completion. FlightFab was created to meet these complicated needs by offering our customers a one-stop solution to your most complicated problems.

We have created a flexible manufacturing environment within FlightFab to take advantage of our in house capabilities such as two, three, and four axis CNC milling; CNC turning; manual machining; CMM inspection; and faster insertion.

We also have developed strategic relationships with area vendors that have substantial expertise in specific areas such as EDM machining, welding, plating and painting. These vendors understand our customer's needs and were chosen for their responsiveness and attention to detail.

The following are some of the attributes of parts that we manufacture for our existing customers either solely in house or with support from our strategic vendors:

Full 3 and 4 Axis milling - Three dimensional surfaces for molds and complicated features; Helical features.

Heat Treated and Thermally Cycled parts - Heat treating of various alloys; Stress relief; Cryogenically cycled treatments.

Many types of aerospace and commercial metals -
Aluminum; Titanium, Stainless Steel; Alloy steels; High Temperature Nickel Alloys; BeCu; Cold Rolled Steel; Others.

Many types of aerospace and commercial plastics and composites -
