Aerospace industry is a research industry that deals with high technology equipments and processes. This industry requires a support base to fit aerospace precision machined parts for various products such as aircrafts, missiles, engines, propulsion units etc. This necessitates the setting up of facilities such as SEZ (Special Economic Zones) to meet its machining parts needs.
Global manufacturing services have been set up in different parts of the country to provide support in areas related to manufacturing process planning, assembly process planning, tooling design and development, value engineering and value analysis, reverse engineering, assembly tooling design & development and CNC program coding.
These services enter into joint ventures with other reputed organizations to expand its capabilities and support aerospace companies in the field of metal manufacturing and special processing areas. For example, in Karnataka SEZ, there is a facility that has capacity of working over 45000 hrs/year using state-of-the art machinery for the manufacturing of precision machined aero engines and aero structure components to adhere to the stringent quality standards of the Aerospace industry.
By choosing to work with such aerospace engineering services set up in hi-tech SEZ units, aerospace companies can enjoy the following benefits.
1) Fully equipped inspection centers.
2) Availability of varied machines such as Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM), Leica microscope, Millipore testing for Dirt and chip level content (Clean room) etc.
There are many engineering consultancy services that also offer support to aerospace engineering companies.
a) The integrated engineering and manufacturing capabilities include best-in-class manufacturing processes, state-of-the-art technologies and a technically competent team.
b) The flexible, modular approach from design through to manufacturing provides a customized, end-to-end solution to the aerospace companies; thereby reducing cost and increasing value.
c) India’s most advanced SEZ for aerospace is now located in Belgaum, Karnataka. The engineering consultancy services available there have unique capabilities for design, precision machining and special processing.
d) They are also specialized in designing and building of hydraulic test rigs for Aerospace and Automotive applications, turn-key solutions for tooling up 3, 4, 5 axis machining centers, turn mill centers from design to manufacturing including testing and commissioning.
With support from such manufacturing and engineering services, Aerospace industry in India is poised for greater growth and success in the near future.
