Aerospace CNC Machining

We are a walk-in player with extensive aerospace CNC machining experience. We serve some of the most iconic names in aerospace.  In our experience, state-of-the-art equipment is an essential part of aerospace CNC machining, and we have a long track record of investing in new machining tech.  Investments like custom-built modular fixtures, mag fixtures, shrink fit tooling, automated probing software, high-end tooling, and the latest in MasterCAM.

While state-of-the-art equipment is essential, having skilled tradesmen is vital. Our team of expert machinists has hundreds of years of combined experience. If there is a problem with a print or a process, our team will catch it on the front end. This type of proactive, expert service has saved our customers time and money.
 
Above all, aerospace CNC machining requires in-depth inspection and strict process control. For example, when we produce aerospace parts, there are quality checkpoints at every step. This type of control helps to prevent human error.  We want our customers to take comfort in the fact that we are experts in our trade. After all, CNC Machining is what we do every day, all day.
 

Lastly, we care about our customers and our commitments, and producing a quality product separates us from many of our competitors. If you have an aerospace CNC machining project coming up, reach out and chat with us.  You can email sales@napoleonmachine.com or schedule a meeting. Be sure to check out our aerospace welding services before you leave.

We have the right equipment for repeat aerospace CNC machining.

We use various types of equipment in aerospace CNC machining. The largest CNC machine travels 48 feet (14.63 meters) on the (x) axis and 16 feet (4.88 meters) on the (y) axis. Therefore, it’s essential to keep CNC machines dialed in, and that is why we level our machines every year. Also, we have one of the best maintenance programs in the industry. Lastly, we use custom-built modular fixtures, and these tools are an essential part of repeat batch production. Subscribe to our YouTube channel if you want to see more videos like this.

Quality built into every process.

Properly inspecting parts is an important aspect of our business. However, if you are catching errors in the inspection process, it is too late. There are expenses associated with rework, and often errors cause late deliveries. This is why we build quality into every process. For example, we have kickoff meetings for each job. Our welders, machinists, programmers, project managers, and painters meet and review prints in close detail and iron out any issues on the front end. We have invested in modular fixtures, shrink fit tooling, pre-setters, automated probing software, and more.  All of these tools help to ensure quality in manufacturing.

Inspection Tools:

  • FARO Laser Tracker
  • FARO Gage
  • CMM (Third-Party)
  • Mitutoyo Gages
  • Thread Gages

Napoleon Machine builds Aerospace Assembly Tool
We teamed up with our customer to build this complex part. On the left side of the picture is the part we manufactured. This machine helps build Lockheed Martin’s A2100 satellite. Making this large part required detailed inspection. The guide rail flatness was less than the width of a human hair.
Do we have the certifications needed to work on your aerospace CNC machining project?

“Thank you all for working through the holidays on this Lockheed Martin project, and for helping us laser the assembly.  Your responsiveness truly sets you apart.”

Are short lead times important to you?

Our scheduling tool sends out lead time notices when a machine or department gets low on work.  This allows our customers to take advantage of cheaper rates and faster turn-around.
