Aerospace

With decades of experience serving the aerospace industry, Trinity Forge and Machine possess the technical know-how, advanced quality system and overall level of professionalism to successfully meet and exceed the expectations of aerospace OEMs and their Tier 1 suppliers.

Trinity Forge and Machine has held AS9100C certification since 2003 and ISO 9001:2008 certification since 1993. Trinity Forge and Machine’s entire quality system is aligned to the aerospace industry. It is lean and focused on continuous improvement. We use frequent quality-control inspections and statistical controls to monitor all stages of the forging and machining processes, ensuring consistency and quality throughout production. The system is now mature, robust, and extremely effective.

To respond to the aerospace’s industry’s current focus on cost reductions, Trinity Forge and Machine has retrofitted its range of hydraulic forging hammers with computer-controlled programmable controls. These controls automate the forging process, allowing for net or near-net forgings manufactured with extremely consistent mechanical properties while also greatly reducing production cycle times. With this industry-leading technology, Trinity Forge and Machine offers built-to-print forgings from approx. 3 oz. to 165 lbs. in net weight from the alloys most common to the aerospace industry:

  • Carbon Steels
  • Alloy and Micro-Alloy Steels (including series 4100 through 9300)
  • High Temperature Steels (including A182-F11, F22, F5, F6, F9)
  • Stainless Steels (including 300 and 400 series, and PH grades)
  • Nickel-Based Alloys (including Monel, Inconel, Haynes, Waspalloy, and Hastalloy)
  • Aluminum
  • Aluminum Bronze
  • Copper-Nickel
  • Titanium

Trinity Forge and Machine also maintains a PhD Metallurgist on-staff, allowing customers to rest assured that any unique material, heat treatment, testing or other processing specifications will be fully understood and successfully adhered to.

Trinity Forge and Machine also houses a fully-equipped machining complex offering precision machining, fabrication and mechanical or welding assembly services. The equipment mix is regularly modified to ensure an ability to offer the turnkey finished metal components customers demand at that moment.

Trinity Forge has experience and capacity to offer the following forge and/or machined components for the aerospace industry:

  • Actuation system components
  • APU (Auxiliary Power Unit) components
  • Door hinges
  • Engine discs
  • Engine mounts
  • Engine system components
  • Fittings
  • Flap tracts
  • Fluid conveyance system components
  • Fuselage structural components
  • Horizontal stabilizers
  • Landing gear components
  • Trunnion components
  • Wing components / pylons

Trinity Forge and Machine’s well-staffed engineering department is involved with all projects from the quotation stage to the actual production process, including design-to-manufacturability and define-to-cost exercises. The engineers are intimately familiar with the most common 3D CAD/CAM modeling systems, as well as DEFORM, the most comprehensive forging simulation software on the market.

Trinity Forge and Machine is proud of its longstanding focus on serving the aerospace industry and our team is always excited by the prospect of additional aerospace companies interested in partnering with. Please contact us for more information.
