The aerospace sector accounts for approximately 60% of our business activities, as we have quickly developed a strong reputation in this field, having received our AS9100 Rev C approval in Q4 2013.
From business class seating through to the latest in fighter jet aircraft, Pentaxia supplies aerospace composites tooling solutions and components across a very wide range of aerospace applications.
As a business, we can offer a turnkey tooling to component delivery strategy to our demanding clients achieving the highest quality standards and we pride ourselves on our “on-time” aerospace composites delivery performance.
With the global aerospace market growing rapidly in terms of commercial aircraft sales, we are specialists in delivering scalable tooling strategies to our Tier 1 and OEM customers. From receipt of customer CAD we can produce the entire tooling strategy to produce moulded or pressed parts and necessary jigs and fixtures required to produce the finished component.
We can also supply a first off “prove-out” component with all required inspection reporting to validate the tooling. Where required, components can also be primed or painted, dependent upon surface finish requirements.
- Matched-die press tooling and complex component assembly (three composite presses)
- Aircraft interiors – we can undertake all aspects of tooling design through to delivered finished components ready for assembly (typically requiring large scale composite tools with composite backing structures).
- Aerospace tooling refurbishment – repair and replacement of existing tools owing to wear
- Jigs and fixture – complex tooling for bonding, trimming and assembly production requirements
- Component qualification fixtures
- Production offload – composite (4 clean rooms) or machining (five 5-axis machines) offload capabilities.
- Rohacell machining – 5-axis machine dedicated to this application
- First Article Inspection reporting (to AS9102)
