Aerostar Manufacturing was trusted with the precise machining of a critical cover plate (3647611) from Non Ferrous material for a respected client. This client’s need for a cover plate was critical to their machinery operations, which span across several industries, such as automotive, industrial machinery, and aerospace, emphasizing the importance of exactness and adherence to stringent quality standards. This case study uncovers the detailed process that Aerostar leveraged to fulfill their client’s demanding requirements while reinforcing their commitment to excellence.
The initial phase in Aerostar’s cover plate machining process involved an exhaustive receive inspection. Skilled technicians visually examined the raw material, checking for accuracy, potential damages, and possible contamination or rust. Once the material’s quality was validated, it was stored securely to preserve its excellent condition until the machining process commenced.
The next step was leveraging state-of-the-art machinery for exacting results. The lathe machine was put into operation to precisely control the major characteristics of the cover plate, including the 102mm diameter, 47.13mm depth, and 95.6mm diameter. Variable gage inspection and statistical process control (SPC) were integrated into the process to uphold precision. Thorough inspections for diameters, heights/lengths, surface finish, runouts, and potential defects were conducted utilizing variable gages, CMM, and attribute gages.
The cover plate was then subjected to milling operations on the mill machine. Ensuring dimensions accuracy, attribute gages were utilized to inspect diameters and threads, while variable gages and CMM confirmed milled faces’ locations. Rigorous visual inspections were carried out to verify the surface finish and identify any visual defects.
Quality checks were a cornerstone of Aerostar Manufacturing’s process. A final audit of the cover plate was conducted post-machining, featuring an in-depth visual inspection to confirm correct identification and ensure there were no visible defects.
As a company that values delivering superior quality, Aerostar Manufacturing maintains ISO 9001:2015 certification. This commitment to quality management systems that consistently meet customer expectations ensures that every cover plate produced by Aerostar adheres to international quality standards and exceeds client needs.
Through their unwavering commitment to precision and quality, Aerostar Manufacturing successfully delivered a flawlessly machined cover plate to their valued customer. Leveraging ISO-certified processes, employing cutting-edge machinery, and performing rigorous quality checks, Aerostar ensures its products meet the highest industry standards. This success story proves Aerostar Manufacturing’s dedication to excellence, demonstrating their ability to deliver superior machined components to customers across various industries, including automotive, aerospace, industrial machinery, and more.
