Precision CNC Horizontal Milling of a Steel Hinge for the Aerospace Industry
A customer in the aerospace industry was in need of a component that required precision CNC horizontal milling. The part was composed of extruded steel and aluminum and measured 38" long and 1.5" wide by 1.25" high. Manufacturing required true-position tolerances of ±0.002", and featured mill slots and boring. Each hinge had to be primed and anodized, then coated with Rulon to withstand the extremes conditions it would face during its service life. We now ship 30 to 40 hinges each month to our customer.
