Aerospace Contract- Dip-Brazed chassis assembly

by Justin Gamble Vice President

Aerospace Contract for Dip Brazed Electronic Enclosures.

Industry: Commerical Aerospace

Product; Rugged Aerospace Enclosure

Project Overview

We are proud to announce our support for a new Aerospace customer on the east coast. Force Fabrication Inc. was able to get involved with the program at the initial prototype stage with design for manufacturability considerations and joint design recommendations. 

The customer provided models which will altered and details configured to support a successful brazement.  Several different material thicknesses needed to be brazed; sheet metal, CNC turned and milled parts; 6061-T4 material. The assembly was dip brazed per AWS C3.7, Class B; minimal straightening and post braze machining in some areas required.
