Engineered Solutions:

MetSource works tirelessly to provide engineered solutions to Aerospace manufacturers.  Tooling is one example where MetSource has provided numerous solutions to our customers.

Centrifugal castings used as Forming Mandrels in Fan Case Tooling

Composite and sheet metal structures used in aircraft components and aircraft engines are hot-formed around tooling that is typically a welded fabricated structure.  Because of the intense heat in the production process and the very large size of cases being produced, these tools are prone to deformation.  This distortion results in tolerance and roundness issues in the finished part.  The use of alloys such as Invar that resist thermal expansion, and the homogeneous nature of using centrifugals in the application eliminate roundness concerns and provide a high quality finished part.

Hot forming and super-plastic forming dies and platens

A major Tier 1 supplier of aerospace components designs and purchases tooling for hot forming and super-plastic forming of various Inconel and Titanium aerospace components.  The supplier was experiencing thermal cracking in their tooling that necessitated weld repair or replacement of tooling before program completion, seriously jeopardizing program timing and component supply.  MetSource worked with our customer to review tooling design in terms of material selection and goundry gating.  The focus to improve tooling machinability, increase performance and reduce thermal cycle cracking.  The result was a custom designed cast product delivered within four weeks of order receipt allowing the customer to meet program delivery requirements to his customer.

Conversion Assistance

Do you have a complicated machined hog-out, fabrication or multiple process part that may lend itself for conversion to a more optimal manufacturing method?  Many of MetSource’s success stories are centered around converting a product from one process or multiple processes to a streamlined manufacturing process that improves product Quality, Cost and / or Lead-time.

Material Process Selection

Do you have a part design but want a Solutions expert to advise optimal process to produce your part?  Subtle changes in part design can optimize process manufacturability to reduce cost, increase part quality and / or increase throughput.

Metallurgical Assistance

Do you want to speak to a Metallurgist regarding a part and environment to help with material selection?  Alloy selection can greatly affect overall cost and part manufacturability.
