Micromachining

Precision Machining

Aerospace engineering has always been a game of space. The smaller the aircraft, the more competitive “real estate” becomes. It’s easy to fit a full navigational suite onto a 747 jetliner, with enough space left over for an integrated entertainment system, but aboard a jet fighter or a similar one-man aircraft, every square inch must be maximized.
Since the invention of the transistor, downsizing has been the name of the electronics game, and micro-machining is the next step up. The process resembles the creation of full-size circuits, but on a much smaller scale: using lasers, engineers etch surfaces with silicon and boron, creating incredibly small, but very accurate, devices. These could be circuits, sensors, or even tiny copies of full-sized machines, including levers and gears. The smallest micro-machines might only be a few hundred microns across. In the field of aerospace development, they are a godsend. Aerospace engineers can use micro-machined parts for a variety of purposes: sensors, actuators, engines, navigational systems, complicated heads-up displays, and more.
Hess Aerospace and Defense offers micromachining as a precision-based service for our clients. We boast an experienced team of machinists, with a firm commitment to quality. We offer personalized services in order to help clients assess their needs for the project, and our experienced team can manufacture a wide variety of micro-machined parts at a competitive cost.

SAFETY FIRST

It’s fair to say that there aren’t many people who would place a lot of faith in a device they might not be able to see. At Hess Aerospace and Defense, however, we believe that micro-machined parts offer a variety of useful safety features. Their tiny size lend themselves well to redundancy: if one system fails, a micro-machined backup can quickly take over.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

At first glance, it may seem hard to ensure that micro-machined parts have been properly manufactured. Hess Aerospace and Defense’s state-of-the-art quality control ensures that each part will have been properly inspected and assessed before it reaches your hands… no matter how small.

EFFICIENCY MACHINING

Hess Aerospace and Defense believes that micro-machined parts need to be constructed from the toughest materials to ensure a long lifespan. “Ramping” techniques –using light, shallow cuts – allows for fast metal removal rates and the rapid production of bespoke micro machined parts.

HIGHLY SKILLED MANPOWER

Micro-machining parts present a wide range of challenges. The tiny size of some parts requires exacting geometries and choosing the right tools for each job can be a time-consuming effort. At Hess Aerospace and Defense, our trained machinists specialize in these processes, and can rapidly deliver products.

Do you have a project that needs micro machining? Are you looking for a manufacturer that you can depend on when it comes to “On-Time” delivery and who can also deliver on product quality and customer service care? If you do, you’re in the right place.
