SAFE Air’s extensive machining facilities offer the repair of existing, or manufacture of new, aircraft components. This includes engines, propellers and other aviation components for military and civil aviation. SAFE Air’s engineers can also design and manufacture custom tooling and jigs to facilitate repairs or specialist work.
Our capabilities include machining engine cases using our vertical lathe and machining large propellers on our 3m bed lathe. We also have highly accurate tool-making milling machines for producing high quality aircraft components.
SAFE Air’s machine shop is integrated with all other on-site SAFE Air services including engineering design, propeller and engine shops, shot peening, non-destructive testing, electroplating, heat treatment, painting and logistics and supply.
SAFE Air has the capability to process a range of metal components on our specialist CNC router, small CNC lathe and two CNC milling machines. Our specialised engineers use both sophisticated software and manual type precision operations.
Our CNC router can process flat metal panels of up to 3m long, while our high speed machining centre caters for smaller, accurate processing requirements. SAFE Air uses the latest computer aided manufacturing software.
SAFE Air’s manufacturing team works closely with engineering design: Prototype parts are designed by our specialist engineers, cut to absolute precision in the machine shop, then folded using the sophisticated computerised CNC press brake in SAFE Air’s on-site skin bay.
Thanks to this deep integration, SAFE Air’s clients can always expect the highest consistency and quality workmanship.
