CNC Components for Defense
Intrex Aerospace has provided precision machined parts to our defense partners for many years. Our experienced staff and strong systems control are key to our success, both past and present. Our modern 75,000 sq. ft. facility, state-of-the-art equipment, ISO 9001, AS 9100D, and ITAR certifications are positioned to deliver quality aerospace/defense parts.
Program Management Services
One of Intrex many offerings is our program management services. In addition to providing machined parts, we have integrated our program management services that are fundamental to our program management success.
Our trained and experienced staff can support the most demanding requirements of our supply chain partners. Customer input and communication are foundational to executing a successful program management system. We pride ourselves on our customer relationships and understanding their needs. Our ISO 9001:2000, AS9100D and ITAR certifications are a testimony to our commitment to provide our customers with the most efficient, professional, and dedicated level of service.
We oversee our manufacturing process using Epicor ERP/MRP system software. It allows us to schedule and track parts as they flow through our shop floor. It is integrated and can address the following:
- Engineering support
- Kanban Pull Systems
- DX/DO requirements
- Forecasting links to supplier portals
- Raw material sourcing
- Part machining
- Special process management
- Quality assurance
- Packaging & Shipment
The efficiencies gained by the management of our system can greatly reduce lead times and overall costs.
Government Regulation & Compliance
Intrex Aerospace has years of experience producing parts with ITAR requirements. We are ITAR compliant. We supply machined components with the necessary certifications and documentation to meet government standards.
Complex Parts – Shorter Production – Flexible Scheduling
We have several CNC machine tools that have multi-axis simultaneous machining features. One of the advantages of this type of CNC equipment is it can produce complex machined shapes, with minimal operator intervention. Many of the production requirements for producing aerospace/defense components are high mix – low volume. This presents a manufacturing challenge for scheduling and producing parts in an economic manner. The key is setup reduction.
Our recent machine purchases have focused on setup reduction efficiencies. Most of our turn/mill machines have twin spindles. Two spindles can facilitate a smooth part transfer for machining side “A” and transferring to side “B”, all internal to the machining without operator intervention. Eliminating this intervention greatly reduces the number of setups. This setup reduction helps reduce the tolerance “stack up”. which occurs when you move a workpiece between different work holding devices. This helps reduce or eliminate scrap, enhances part quality, and improves operating efficiencies.
A 5 axis CNC machine with an ATC is very flexible. Aerospace/defense parts are subject to rev. updates, changes in lot sizes, inventory constraints, and shrinking lead times. Our 5-axis simultaneous machine tools with ATC’s give us flexibilities, that more traditional machine tools cannot.
