In an ongoing endeavor to enhance our manufacturing capabilities, Marianna Airmotive continues to purchase the latest in state of the art equipment. Our more recent equipment upgrades include an autoclave for bonding and a faro arm for engineering and inspection.
Our new autoclave is eight feet in diameter and has a working interior length of 20 feet. With the addition of this piece of equipment, we are now able to perform bonding operations previously impossible with simple oven and vacuum procedures. With computer programmable accuracy, our new autoclave enables us to bond most honeycomb bonded structures and composite components.
To enhance our repair capability and accuracy, Marianna Airmotive recently purchased a FARO Arm. A FARO Arm is a computerized digitizing device that allows us to perform 3D measurements on any part. Our new FARO arm has a four foot radius and an accuracy of 0.001 inches. With this equipment, we are now able to carry out extremely accurate and complex dimensional inspections that cannot be performed with hand measurement tools or templates. Additionally, the FARO Arm can verify contour as well as hinge and fitting alignment. This capability insures that the parts are dimensionally accurate before they are returned to the customer.
