Examples of the non-safety-critical aerospace machined parts that Rayco can make include:

  • Screws
  • Brackets
  • Handles
  • Interior components
  • Housings

Aerospace Manufacturing Experience

Rayco’s aerospace manufacturing experience extends to first articles of inspection (FAI), certificates of conformance (COC), and material certifications and lot numbers. We can also meet your requirements for straightness, flatness, and surface finish. Our in-house laboratory includes testing equipment to ensure product quality, and our value-added services include design assistance.

Precision Aerospace Machining

Rayco’s ability to provide the aviation industry with precision aerospace machining services extends to drone manufacturers. Like piloted aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAS) need intricate parts with tight tolerances and complex details. Rayco can fabricate these metal parts for you, and with the surface finishes or aerospace coatings that you need.

Custom Aerospace Machining Materials

Aerospace materials need to be strong and lightweight. Commonly used metals include titanium, 061-T6 aluminum, and the following grades of stainless steel: 304, 316, and 17-4PH. In addition to metals, Rayco can machine aerospace plastics such as nylon, PVC, and POM.  From design assistance to help with material selection, you’ll appreciate the range of services that we provide.

AMS Spec Platings and Coatings

When metal fabrication is complete, aerospace customers can leverage Rayco’s anodizing, chromate plating, electroless nickel plating, passivation, and powder coating services.  The chart below describes some of the AMS finishes we can provide.
