At Clearwater Engineering, we provide precision turnkey manufacturing of numerous components and assemblies for the commercial aircraft industry. The assembly highlighted here is a hinge support that is comprised of 7050 AMS 4050 aluminum plate and 6061 T-651 aluminum sheet. The assembly is manufactured by forming and machining individual components to Boeing BAC5300, BAC5004, BAC5047 fabrication standards, holding tolerances as tight as ±0.030". The fabricated components are assembled using hi-locks, bolts, nuts, and nut plates.
After assembly, the hinge support is protected against corrosion using a chromic-acid rinse before it is masked and coated with FR Prime, according to customer specifications. In addition to machining and fabrication, we can facilitate any necessary secondary processes with high quality vendors, simplifying the supply chain and reducing overall turnaround time.
We produce 14 of these assemblies annually with a lead time of one month. As a growing manufacturer with a modern facility, we can efficiently accommodate a wide range of production volumes and component types with precision and efficiency.
