PERFORMANCE AND DURABILITY
When we’re jetting off on holiday, most of us don’t think too much about aircraft material. But the materials used to create aircraft components are critically important to designers and manufacturers in the aerospace industry. Ticking many of the boxes required for aircraft manufacture, aerospace plastic solutions are becoming increasingly common.
Established since 1979, TK Fabrications is privately owned and family-run, with the emphasis on superior quality and service. Having invested heavily in state-of-the-art equipment, our reputation for plastic machining services is growing. We fabricate volume or one-off parts in plastic and composite for a wide range of sectors, including the aerospace industry. We’re able to offer a variety of cost-effective processes, from CNC turning and milling to routing and cutting.
THE PERFECT AIRCRAFT MATERIAL
Aircraft material is central to the performance and durability of air transport. It affects all aspects of the aerospace industry, from passenger and cargo to military and defence.
One of the most important qualities of aircraft material is naturally the weight. Lighter aircraft are clearly more fuel-efficient, and lower emissions are something every industry is striving for. That’s one reason why aerospace plastic solutions are becoming the go-to option.
The performance and durability of aircraft material is also critical, which is why plastic is so highly valued. Strong and highly resistant to corrosion and vibration, it’s become a vital element of aerospace construction. Many of the materials we use also offer excellent heat resistance and electrical insulating properties.
TK FABRICATIONS AND THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY
With plastic in demand as the ultimate aircraft material, TK Fabrications is ideally placed to serve the aerospace industry. We can supply a range of high-performance solutions for a variety of components, from landing gear to instrument panels.
Our CNC machining capabilities provide complete precision, using whatever material is required. The aircraft materials we work with incorporate sheet plastics like acrylic, PVC, and polycarbonate. Aerospace applications include items such as ventilation grills, tray tables, bearings, housings and numerous other interior components.
As well as being accurate, CNC machining is fast and easily repeatable, making it ideal for consistent production. It also allows us to produce functional prototypes that can be used in performance testing.
