These precision fracture critical components presented many challenges:
Thin Wall and Deep Pocket Design:
Wall and web thickness as thin as .085” thick, with depths of up to 6”. This condition causes a tremendous amount of part movement as the ribs are machined from solid titanium forgings.
Hinge Hole Alignment:
Precision hole requirements of 104 bushing holes have to be within +/-.0012 of a true centerline across the 56” hinge area.
Outside Machined Contour:
Adjoining composite skins require a .007 profile on the outside contour surface of part to maintain stealth characteristics.
This project is an excellent example of how Metalex supports our customers from prototype development to setting up specialized manufacturing cells to support initial and full rate production.
