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.
Quaker City Casting can finish machine 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.
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.
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 application. Austempered Ductile Iron Castings are one class of castings that are commonly used in the aerospace world.
These castings typically require the absolute highest amount 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 allow 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.
