Aerospace Manufacturing – Hydraulic and Electric Components

Aerospace manufacturing is incredibly complex. Hundreds of globally dispersed suppliers may be involved in an initiative. In this rapidly expanding market, the demand for increased efficiency, security, quality and durability are going to separate the leading companies from those that fall behind.

Major airplane programs have been consistently late to market — up to three years and longer. These delays have cost companies billions and, in some cases, tens of billions of dollars in direct costs and lost sales. Delays have also deteriorated market values and hindered credibility. The delays are widespread rather than isolated to a particular company or market segment.

With over 60 years of experience, Hardy Machine is the trusted manufacturer for aerospace OEM’s that require hydraulic and electronic parts for their planes. We produce precision-machined components that can stand up to the high and low pressure of liquids and gases and have the expertise to understand the finishes and edges required for electromechanical assemblies. We understand the materials that meet the strength to weight ratio required for aerospace design specifications. Hardy Machine can manufacture and assemble critical components such as:

  • Instrumentation
  • Cables / cable fittings
  • Electronic boxes
  • Sub-components for gaging
  • Machined and milled aluminum block for displays
  • Critical machine fittings for flight controls (push-pull, cockpit)
  • Continuous fitting mounts
  • Electronic aviation controls
  • Much more

Given our long history, we have expertise machining parts for older airplanes as well. Because we understand this industry, we take a comprehensive approach for our customers and offer you balance sheet management, inventory forecasting and other complementary services. We produce the right components the first time, on time and have the financial stability to ensure that we make the right capital investments for the future.

Our Capabilities

Assembly Services

Our assembly services can help you save time and money by reducing the number of parts and lowering shipping costs. We offer full assembly, sub-assembly and kit assembly as well as pressure testing to ensure a tight seal for liquid and gas parts. We can also provide fully finished parts. Our facility has a clean assembly area for medical and electronics parts and a separate area for soldering, gluing, brazing or any other processes that create waste.

Swiss Turning Centers

From 5 – 10,000 pieces or more, our state-of-the-art multi-axis equipment allows your parts to come off the line complete and fully functioning at tolerances of +/- 0.0002. Our magazine bar feeders allow for lights-out production. We manufacture parts from 1/16” to 1-¼” diameter in plastic, brass, aluminum and stainless steel.

Multi-Axis Turn/Mill Centers

We can run 24×7 (unattended lights-out) with our top-of-the-line robotics and magazine bar loader equipment. With a +/- 0.0002 tolerance and a 1/4″ – 8” diameter our multi-axis machine offers tapping, turning, milling and drilling so that your plastic, brass, aluminum and stainless-steel parts come off complete.

Milling Centers

Hardy Machine offers high-precision vertical and horizontal (6 and 8 pallet) milling machines and high-speed drilling and tapping. This equipment can run lights-out which provides our customers speed, repeatability, accuracy and cost savings.

Turning Centers

With a 1/4″ – 2-5/8” bar capacity and 8 – 12 station turrets, we have the right fit for all of your turned parts.

Quality Control

You can’t gain a reputation for exceptional parts that hold up under high and low pressure liquid and gas without superior quality control. We can provide bubble drawings, full inspection reports, material certifications and any other documentation required.

You don’t stay in business for over 60 years without generations-deep expertise and a commitment to your customers.

We pride ourselves in the fact that every single member of our team sees themselves as an extension of our OEM customers’ logistics program.
