CNC Machining of Sleeves

With a proven reputation for manufacturing high quality parts for critical applications, Twin City EDM and Manufacturing manufactured these sleeves shown here for a customer in the aviation industry. Used to secure instrumentation on the wing of an aircraft, this part featured a complex geometry that required precision crafting to ensure its reliable performance in extreme conditions.

We fabricated this part from Nickel 211, chosen for its high strength and superior corrosion resistance. Utilizing our multi-spindle twin turret lathe, Mazak vertical CNC mill, and CNC sinker EDM, we were able to form the tight variations on compound radii while maintaining a thin, uniform wall thickness. Machined to ultra-exact ±0.0004″ tolerances, we deburred each piece and laser marked them to provide full part traceability. Inside of our state-of-the art, temperature controlled quality control lab, highly trained technicians verified we met the customer specifications.

Our flexible operations enabled us to manufacture 150 of these intricate pieces in less than six weeks. Nothing less than our intense attention to detail would have guaranteed the success of this project. If you have similar requirements, we welcome the opportunity to meet your complexity challenges. contact us today with the details!
