Steel Castings and Iron Castings for Aerospace And Aviation

OEM aerospace manufacturers require their suppliers to meet precise tolerances using tight dimensional specifications and the absolute highest quality standards. Aerospace castings are critical components in the aviation industry, where safety and performance are paramount. Quaker City Castings excels in producing high-quality steel and iron castings that meet these rigorous demands.

Applications of Aerospace Castings:

  • Aircraft braking systems
  • Turbine engines
  • Structural components

Quaker City Castings can machine finish the majority of its products to produce net shape parts and components for the aerospace and aviation industry. We pour castings in a wide variety of materials, including stainless steel, carbon steel, and specialty alloys. Our parts have a consistently high degree of dimensional accuracy as well as being durable.

Benefits of Our Aerospace Castings:

  1. Precision: High dimensional accuracy.
  2. Durability: Strong and tough materials suitable for demanding applications.
  3. Flexibility: Capable of producing both prototypes and large-volume orders.

We can produce parts for prototype applications or new product introductions quickly, eliminating much of the lag that is associated with new projects. But we can manufacture parts in the thousands as well. Our highly flexible production process is tailored to meet the needs of our customers, no matter the size, volume, or critical nature of the parts they order.

Materials Used in Aerospace Castings:

Aircraft braking castings, turbine castings, and engine castings are just a few examples of the parts we make for the aerospace and aviation industry. While it is true that many aerospace castings are aluminum as opposed to iron or steel, there are many families of aircraft castings that require the additional strength and toughness of iron or steel castings to hold up under demanding and safety-critical aerospace applications. Austempered Ductile Iron Castings are one class of castings that are commonly used in the aerospace world.

Advantages of Austempered Ductile Iron Castings:

  • Strength: High strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Toughness: Excellent impact resistance.
  • Durability: Long-lasting under extreme conditions.

These castings typically require the absolute highest amount of production control and inspection. Our ISO 9001:2008 quality control system is vital to the efficient production of these components, and our on-site inspection in both destructive and non-destructive methods allows us to provide customers with a tremendous degree of assurance in our processes. The result of our high attention to detail and precision manufacturing methods are aerospace castings that meet the rigorous demands of any customer.
