An industrial sector with high standards and constraints

For many years now, the aeronautical industry has been experiencing a sustained and lasting dynamic that has enabled it to record growth rates higher than the average for other industrial sectors.

 

This strong demand, combined with the time constraints of a sector renowned for its demanding nature, has put pressure on all the players in the aeronautical supply chain, from equipment manufacturers to subcontractors.

 

Optimising the supply chain has therefore become a major challenge in order to gain in competitiveness and productivity, while reducing costs, in a context of increased international competition.

 

Challenges for both manufacturers and subcontractors

New challenges are thus offered at all levels of the chain, modifying the relationship between principals and suppliers and leading to closer involvement on both sides in the face of new market requirements.

 

At MÉCANUMÉRIC, we have understood what these challenges mean in terms of innovation and machining specificities, in order to manufacture high-quality, agile multi-technology production equipment with performances perfectly adapted to this advanced environment.

 

More than just machines, MÉCANUMÉRIC, as a supplier of industrial equipment, offers real solutions accompanied by exemplary service to its OEM and subcontractor customers, with the proactivity that today's clients demand upstream:

 

- 3, 4 or 5-axis digital milling machines for CNC machining of aluminium, thick plastic materials and composites with high mechanical characteristics, with the Mecapro, Mecaplus and Normaprofil ranges.

 

- Waterjet cutting equipment for very high pressure cutting of soft or hard materials, with the Mecajet and Quickjet ranges.

 

- High-speed thermoforming machines for complex parts with high forming depths such as aircraft seats, with the Mecaform range.

 

For the aeronautical sector, MÉCANUMÉRIC's multi-technology machining equipment enables the manufacture of both primary elements (structures, frames, spars, crosspieces, etc.) and fitting-out parts (cabin interiors, windows, seats, fittings, stops, plates, splints, etc.).

 

 

CNC milling machines for the manufacture of satellite and sounding balloon components

3-axis CNC milling is used for the manufacture of numerous additive parts for satellites and sounding balloons. Indeed, the industrial equipments such as MECAPRO, MECAPLUS and MECAPLUS HP are the ideal allies for the industrialists in the space field to mill all types of parts whether they are very small or large.

 

 

High performance industrial tools for the manufacture of structural parts and tooling

The manufacture of aircraft wings, fuselage and bulkheads requires the use of state-of-the-art CNC machines for digital milling and THP waterjet cutting.

 

Indeed, each component of the structure and each tooling used to produce the parts of an aircraft must be of perfect quality and durable over time despite extreme conditions of use (temperature variations for example). Whether the material to be machined is thin or thick, the same degree of quality is required. High precision machining is therefore as essential as it is vital.

 

 

CNC machines for the manufacture of seats and aircraft fittings

A variety of industrial equipment is required for the manufacture of seats and interior fittings. CNC milling and thermoforming are used to produce these passenger comfort features.

 

CNC milling machines, using computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) software, are used to produce prototypes of plastic components for luggage compartments or aircraft galleys, for example.

 

The CNC machines MECAESAY and MECAPRO are perfectly adapted to this type of manufacturing. The NORMAPROFIL range is ideal for thermoforming various components of aircraft seats. 

 

 

Industrial equipment for the production of aircraft windows

The manufacture of aircraft windows requires a high level of expertise and precision. Since they have to withstand considerable stresses, their design and manufacture must be extremely rigorous.

 

Before being integrated into its frame, the window must have perfect proportions: thickness, rigidity, weight, curvature, etc. CNC machines from the NORMAPROFIL range, for example, allow the thermoforming of complex and specific engineering parts such as windows.

 

 

Industrial equipment for the manufacture of airport trolleys

Trolleys are of great importance to the airport organisation on the ground in the aviation sector. Their perfect function and long service life provide comfort for users and reduce the costs of repairing or replacing defective parts.

 

The manufacture of parts such as the structural elements of airport trolleys requires the use of CNC machines for milling and waterjet cutting. MECAPRO and MECAJET industrial equipment are perfectly suited for the machining of this type of parts.
