We invested in a ‘3D’ CAM modelling package and after training key staff we commenced manufacture to current drawings. The engineers at Mini Gears realised that there was a better way of manufacturing these components and purchased a Dah Lih MCV 1200 vertical machining centre which has a very high spindle speed of 15,000rpm used for machining aluminium.
The frames were previously made in 3 parts and welded together, we now manufacture the entire frame from solid which has improved the finish, quality and cost of the item and made it 50% stronger.
Aircraft seating parts are highly visible and must look pristine so we take great care with how we deliver these components. Mini Gears specially designed the packaging for these aircraft parts which are packed as a kit and used for Kanban deliveries.
