Our offered Product range includes blower housing and Burner Shroud.
In this instance, a customer in the aerospace industry commissioned us to fabricate a custom housing unit used as an aircraft blower housing. Tooling for the part was designed and developed in-house. After circle shearing from 0.090" thick 6061 series ASTM E8B557 aluminum sheeting, the unit was precision formed with our metal spinning process and hand levers, with additional spinning to produce the designed end flanges. All outside diameter surfaces were machined for final detailing and refinement. The unit was further subjected to a heat treating process, and completed with a distinctive brushed polish and alkaline etching procedure. Optical inspections were implemented to verify dimensions and ensure quality. Overall measurements of the competed housing were 7.125" in length and 6" outside diameter, and it was constructed holding a tight ±.005" tolerance throughout. The customers requested timeline of 4 weeks was fulfilled, delivering the unit after a 3-12 week turnaround time. Typical timeline for this process is 6 to 8 weeks, with 50 to 75 units shipped per order to the customer in Wichita, Kansas.
Holding the tightest tolerance of ±.005" throughout, the final dimensions of the shroud were 2.75" in length and 4" outside diameter. The part exhibited a raw spun finish. Turnaround time for this project was 6 to 8 weeks, shipping 200 units per order to the customer in North Ridgeville, Ohio. We have a relationship of over 40 years with this customer, a testament to our superior customer service and high client satisfaction rate.
