Precision Lathe Machining
Intrex Aerospace provides precision CNC components and system support for the complex needs of aerospace, defense, and space companies. We are able to provide complex-shaped machined parts to these industries, along with a high level of integration and support documentation. Our facility is equipped with over 35 CNC machines. We have twin spindle CNC turning/mill lathes, 5-axis mill/turns, and 4-axis vertical and horizontal machine centers. With our lineup of precision CNC equipment, we can produce machined aerospace parts in a wide range of sizes and complex shapes.
In recent years, we have made significant capital investments in our building, CNC machines, support equipment, and systems software. In addition to our existing CNC equipment, our recent investments in CNC lathe machines include:
- 1 – DMG/Mori NTX Series
- 3 – DMG/Mori NLX2500SY/700
- 1 – DMG/MoriNLX2000 SY
- DMG/Mori CMX 1100
Our work envelope currently produces a variety of sizes and shapes including aerospace products like flanges, couplings, sleeves, nuts, bushings, and housings. We make parts from solids, castings, and forgings in a variety of aerospace materials, such as TZM, Inconel, aluminum, cold roll steel, stainless steel, titanium, Monel, and Hastelloy. Most of our machined parts require special processing, from anodizing and heat treating to coatings and lubricants. We manage the outsourcing of special processing through our powerful Epicor MRP/ERP software. Management and integration of our processes is seamless and efficient.
Thin Walled Machining
One of our areas of greatest experience and expertise is producing thin-walled machined parts for aerospace and defense applications. Our equipment, systems, and staff excel at producing these type of precision parts. We also offer a variety of CNC turning and milling machines in standalone or cell configurations, depending on demand and volume, that can efficiently produce thin-walled machined parts.
Program Management Capabilities
In addition to our wide range of capabilities, Intrex has a team of knowledgeable machinists, many with more than 30 years of aerospace CNC machining experience. Our Program Management team can manage the ever-changing demands of aerospace production and scheduling. Our demand-planning experience and success in managing high-mix/low-volume aerospace components, coupled with our ISO 9001 and AS9100 certifications, offer a comprehensive and reliable program solution.
Precision manufacturing for aerospace and defense components requires careful quality control. At Intrex Aerospace, we have a quality assurance process that provides our customers with detailed information on the steps we take to ensure quality throughout production. We’ve invested in a quality management software package, which is integrated with our Epicor system. This software allows us to track a range of quality control metrics, such as CPk and SPCs. We can also use it to generate reports that allow our customers to see how we’ve improved quality and reduced waste throughout the production of their precision components.
