Aerospace engineering: parts for an aircraft engine
Customer: specializes in co-design, manufacturing, repair and improvement of high-end aircraft components
Applied expertise: Simulation Autoform, Feasibility study, Method planning, Engineering, Tooling engineering, Process engineering, Progressive tooling, Preliminary study
SSEB engineered various aircraft parts for an engine for smaller airplanes, including business jets, for this customer. Together, these parts form an assembly.
We started with determining the production process. Next, the progressive tooling was drawn and supplied to Senior Aerospace Bosman. The parts for this aircraft engine consisted of different materials. The following materials were used:
– Inconel 718 (SIM 625). Thickness: 0.60 mm.
– SS321. Thickness: 1.0 mm.
– SS321. Thickness: 0.80 mm.
Material reactions were tested in practice, after which the material characteristics were entered into Autoform.
