Air travel is returning to pre-pandemic levels. New aircraft orders from airlines and the military signal continued growth and investment in engine and plane designs to increase fuel efficiency. A shift from global to more regional sourcing aims to streamline the design and development process and avoid supply disruptions. Continued innovation in markets such as space and advanced air mobility (AAM) is taking technology to new heights.

With each innovation the aerospace industry launches, manufacturers must land more sources for superior quality, high-precision components with fast ETAs. As always, Swiss screw technology has the right stuff to help meet the demand.

Efficiency – Multi-axis Swiss machines can perform more operations in one setup – drilling, cutting, milling, etc. – reducing cycle times and set-up expense. The machines can meet shorter lead schedules and quicker turnaround times in the aerospace industry, offering unequalled efficiency.

Versatility – Swiss technology offers the versatility to meet a wide range of material needs such as titanium, copper, lithium, tin, silver, gold, nickel, and high-tech alloys used in demanding aerospace applications.

QualitySwiss screw machines better support the stock material during production of aerospace components, so the part moves while the tooling is stationary. There is less risk of the support material moving resulting in superior quality and high precision accuracy.

An ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 registered company, Sheldon Precision has long taken pride in producing the highest quality components with Swiss screw machine technology. As an independent manufacturer with a talented and experienced staff, we stand ready to provide the Swiss screw machined parts you need.
