Complex mill turning for the Aerospace industry

Consistent results are assured as APT use modern CNC lathes and state of the art quality control equipment such as the top of the range Keyence IM-7030T Image Dimension Measurement System.

Such advanced aerospace machining technology allows for the most accurate measurement of aerospace components, with our output being maximised. Customers benefit from high precision mill turned parts and excellent turnaround times.

Turned parts in Aerospace aluminium

APT have the expertise to produce precision turned components using especially lightweight aerospace aluminium. Easily workable and weighing a fraction of stainless steel, this material is used for a wide range of aerospace applications. It has the additional benefit of helping to boost aircraft fuel efficiency.

See the variety of aluminium turned parts that we manufacture in line with the AS9100 aerospace standard:

  • Helmet Adjuster
  • Captive Screw Grommet
  • Valve Fitting

Aerospace turned components in Stainless Steel

Considered a good alternative to aluminium for some aerospace applications, stainless steel turned parts have a relatively high level of tensile strength and is able to withstand exposure to higher temperatures. With the added benefit of absorbing high-impact stresses, It is a particularly good choice for landing gear components.

Stainless steel is also our preferred material for the manufacturing of these parts:

  • Ferrule Pipe Fitting
  • Captive screws
  • Retainer Nut Grommet

Precision components in Aerospace titanium

With the advantage of having a high strength to weight ratio, titanium is also used for the manufacturing of our aerospace turned parts. This lightweight material is a common feature of military aircraft and can be CNC machined efficiently.

Titanium is our preferred material for the production of AS9100 aerospace components such as:

  • Pipe Flange
  • Special Bolts
  • Nozzle
