NMG’s exceptional machining capabilities support production of landing gear steering components, like plates and steering sleeves, within the aerospace industry. 40,000 square feet of our state-of-the-art facilities are dedicated to precision machining. We have over 40 machining centers, mills, and lathes, including CNC machining, dedicated to critical aerospace components.
The NMG machining team has hundreds of years of combined experience with a wide range of techniques. Our experts understand the importance of machining and deburring specific material grades in order to exceed and redefine the industry standard.
Design for Manufacturability
For customers looking to streamline the manufacturing process, NMG can offer expert guidance and consultative support from the early stages of design and production. With our years of manufacturing experience, we have a deep understanding of the small details that can make a big difference during the production process. We can work with customers to review their design and suggest modifications that will result in faster, more cost effective production, so our customers can save time, money, and stress.
NMG Components for Aircraft Systems
With our years of experience in the aerospace industry, we’ve become seasoned experts on a variety of critical systems within an aircraft. We understand the importance of tight tolerances and the challenge of making components for such a rigorous service environment. You can count on us to manufacture high-performance components and assemblies that meet your expectations and quality standards.
Our areas of expertise include:
Even the largest aircraft only maintains contact with the earth via its landing gear. Every component of the landing gear system must work in concert to ensure a safe landing, even in undesirable conditions. This requires precision during the design, manufacturing, and assembly processes. NMG has years of experience making reliable landing gear to bring you safely back to earth.
Portable Water and Waste Tanks
When it comes to portable water and waste management, sanitation and performance are equally important. These tanks and systems must fulfill vital functions in a high-pressure environment. Precision is key to ensuring consistent performance in flight. With our deep understanding of the critical nature of these components and the unique rigors of their service environment, NMG can create top-quality portable water and waste tanks that remain safe to use from takeoff to landing.
While there are some similarities between steering an aircraft and steering a car, the critical differences between the two are vital to understand. Because the pilot is managing so many systems and functions at once, the steering mechanism must be operable with one hand and must not disrupt other critical functions of the craft. NMG has years of experience manufacturing the vital components that make up the steering system and can ensure the precision needed for effective operation under any circumstances.
Though the deployment of an evacuation slide is rare, aircraft evacuation slides are absolutely critical for safety in an emergency situation. These slides must be simple enough for the average passenger to operate, yet there are powerful mechanisms in place to inflate the slide in under ten seconds. And construction errors can be costly: The industry loses $20 million a year to inadvertent slide deployment problems, which can cause injury and even death. The experts at NMG can manufacture highly precise evacuation slide components to support safe deployment and minimize errors.
NMG has years of experience manufacturing crew seats, from welded tube frames to stretched and sewn fabric. We can manufacture both individual components and full aircraft seating assemblies, depending on your needs. We also have significant experience with the folding mechanisms of aircraft seats and can manufacture seats that fold and store efficiently, for easy use in the field.
The shape and surface of nacelle plays an important role in minimizing drag and protecting critical components while in flight. NMG understands the vital importance of nacelle, including the frequent need for custom manufacturing. We can manufacture nacelle to your exact specifications.
Other Aircraft Components
NMG has manufactured countless aircraft components over the years. We can produce a broad selection of aerospace-grade, motor-operated valves, hydraulic valves, solenoids, relays, and many more complex aircraft and industrial components.
NMG has adopted a lean manufacturing approach so that we can continually improve our processes, prices, and the customer experience. Every NMG team member undergoes intensive lean manufacturing and continuous improvement training to ensure that our entire enterprise is working together to find opportunities for growth and help our customers remain nimble as they navigate the changing landscape of the aerospace industry.
