It takes a lot of science and a ton of organization to turn drawings and documents into commercial, civilian and military aircraft. The firms who do it well make it seem more like an art form.

It’s hard work—and it’s getting harder. Prices are rising. Supply chains are unpredictable. Maintaining safety is paramount.

At a time when OEMs are under great pressure to meet their obligations while preserving part quality and safety, strong supplier partnerships— including those with thermal processors—can change the game.

PRECISE HEAT TREATMENT IS VITAL FOR AEROSPACE ALLOYS

The stakes are high in aerospace research & development and manufacturing. In military, commercial and private aviation sectors, the industry has focused on developing better-engineered parts that withstand abusive service over long periods of time.

The pursuit of faster, lighter, more efficient aircraft has spurred the development
of countless complex alloys. And for those alloys to perform as designed, equally
complex heat treatments have emerged.

In this guide, we discuss:

  • The importance of precision for thermal processing of aerospace alloys.
  • Key characteristics of Nadcap-certified heat treaters.
  • How thermal processors figure into First Article Inspections and compliance with the AS9102 standard.
  • How Paulo meets the evolving needs of aerospace OEMs.
