Dekalb Tool & Die, Inc. CNC machining services are well suited to a wide range of industries and applications, as this CNC machined structural aircraft fitting project shows. Our CNC mill features X, Y, and Z travels of 132", 72", and 35", and we used it to machine 18 structural aircraft fittings from a 400 lb. forged 7050 aluminum billet. Working to a tolerance ±.0025", DeKalb Tool and Die milled the structural aircraft fittings to the customer-specified dimensions of 5" in length, 15" wide, and 35" tall, with a minimum web thickness of .06".
DeKalb Tool & Die also carried out tensile strength testing in process, and provided a Mil-Spec compliant finish for these CNC machined aircraft fittings. As carriers of a CAGE code, Dekalb Tool and Die is able to supply pieces like this to all types of aerospace and defense firms and agencies. Dekalb Tool & Die's extensive testing and ISO quality assurance standards ensure that necessary requirements will be met.
