Other Markets that an Aerospace Manufacturer can Effectively Serve
An aerospace manufacturer may specialize in producing components for aircraft, but the skills involved in this type of manufacturing can be effectively utilized for many other markets. Virtually any project requiring high-precision components or items with complex shapes can benefit from the support of a company with extensive skills in this field. Additionally, an aerospace manufacturer will often have great experience working with materials such as titanium, which other machines shops may have difficulty in processing.
The maritime industry is one particular example in which this applies. Shipboard components often have to survive extreme conditions and forces similar to those experienced by parts in aerospace applications. Telecommunications is another market where an aerospace manufacturer may be of use, particularly for projects involving satellites, which naturally overlap with the aerospace industry. Power generation, particularly nuclear, also relies on precision system components, compliance with ITAR regulations, and strict quality controls, making aerospace companies natural suppliers for the clients in this field. These are all just a few of the many different markets that can regularly benefit from an aerospace manufacturer capable of producing quality components.
In a broader sense, an aerospace manufacturer that focuses on lean processes, strict quality control and high-mix/low-volume production can be useful for prototyping manufacturing processes. The strict recording and controlling of process in aerospace manufacturing can be applied to deliver a wealth of information on how parts can be made efficiently and reliably. This can help an organization clearly see any design flaws that impact the manufacturing of a product before the full production cycles begin.
