Gen-El-Mec Associates, Inc. specializes in complex machining of precision products for the aerospace industry.

We manufactured these aluminum housings exactly to the customer’s specifications. Machined from solid aluminum billet, it featured dimensions of 8.50″ in diameter and 13.13″ in height. Utilizing high-tech CNC machine tools combined with well-engineered manufacturing strategies, we were able to effectively maintain the .040″ wall thickness and cut the highly intricate edge details of the internal flanges.

Our metrology technicians used a high accuracy CMM system to take precision measurements at all critical stages, and final inspection substantiated that we met the ±.0005″ tolerance requirement. This high-performance housing was delivered to the customer within a 10-week timeframe.
