Intrex Aerospace provides precision CNC components in many different materials. The aerospace, defense, and space markets require complex shapes and, in some cases, difficult-to-machine materials. Titanium machining is one of the materials we have significant experience with. Our facility is equipped with over 35 CNC machines for machining a breadth of materials. 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.
Because of our customers’ demand for precision components machined out of titanium, we have made significant capital investments in our facility, 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
- 1- DMG/Mori CMX 1100
Our work orders come in different lot sizes, requiring different work envelopes, turned and milled shapes, and titanium machining. They include flanges, couplings, sleeves, nuts, bushings, and housings. We make parts from solids, castings, and forgings in a variety of aerospace materials: TZM, Inconel, aluminum, cold roll steel, stainless steel, titanium, monel, and hastelloy. Many of our machined parts require special processing (anodizing, heat treating, coatings, lubricants). We manage the outsourcing of the 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 specialization 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 in cell configurations, depending on demand and volume, that can efficiently produce thin walled machined parts.
Program Management Capabilities
We offer a skilled, experienced team of knowledgeable machinists, some with more than 30 years experience with titanium machining. We couple this with our Program Management team and we 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 certification, offers a comprehensive, reliable program solution.
Whenever you produce precision machined parts for aerospace and defense, you also have to have a high level of 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.
