Aerospace: high-quality standards
Lightweight aluminium profiles with high-quality, consistent standards
Precision extrusion in the aerospace industry
EN-755-9 and EN-12020-2 are the common standards for the extrusion of aluminium profiles. They allow deviations of +/- 0.15 millimeters or more. Mifa goes beyond that through our precision extrusion technology, which can achieve accuracy up to 0.02 mm. Thin-walled lightweight profiles, post-processing such as surface treatments and assembly, and automation make Mifa unique as a supplier for the aviation industry, all under one roof with deliveries in large volumes.
Thanks to our technology, knowledge, and experience, we can produce the most complex shapes of aluminum at Mifa. We can manufacture these complex shapes into a qualified end product using various techniques. We offer a complete in-house package through techniques such as:
- Belt grinding;
- Surface treatments.
We can realize complete components for our customers because we write our own software and create molds for CNC machines. Each profile requires a specific machining method, especially if it is a visible surface. Our engineers use CAD/CAM programs like Solid Works, Solid Edge, and Unigraphics for this purpose. By involving our engineers in the development phase, we can provide advice and make the production process more efficient and faster. At Mifa, we are happy to take complete responsibility for your product.
Automation of processes
At Mifa, we focus on transforming business processes through advanced automation and robotics. These technologies can provide strong benefits, and we can achieve this through the extensive experience and expertise of our colleagues.
Robotics can make business processes more efficient. Our machine park is designed to load machines, process products, and perform automatic measurements. We strategically employ co-robotization to take over repetitive and strenuous tasks. This way, both colleagues and robots can excel in tasks that require a human touch.
Quality and consistency are crucial concepts in the aircraft and aviation industry. Through (co-)robotization, large volumes can be delivered with consistent quality.
High quality for various components
Mifa produces high-quality extrusion profiles for clients such as Airbus and Collins Aerospace. We can offer these extrusion profiles through a diverse range of techniques. Together with our aviation clients, we develop extrusion profiles and components for:
- Kitchens and trolleys
- Radar components
- Luggage compartments
As an additional benefit for the customer, at Mifa, we focus on various cosmetic requirements. We have special processes to continuously meet the cosmetic importance of our profiles.
