MECHANICAL ASSEMBLIES

Avior manufactures mechanical assemblies that range from a simple bellcrank to more complex flight control assemblies. Part of these assemblies are considered flight-critical components and require a high level of accreditation from our customers. Each part is manufactured using frozen-planning that is reviewed by the customer. Each detail in the assembly requires serialization to ensure traceability at a detail level and goes through a strict dimensional and functional inspection.

CAPABILITIES AND APPROVED SPECIAL PROCESSES

The flight-critical mechanical assemblies often require a variety of special processes that require customer approvals. The following specialized processes are all performed in-house.

  • Bearing installation

    • Staking and swaging (torque testing)
    • Proof Load testing (max. 3000 lbs)
  • Component installation

    • Faying surface and fillet sealing
    • Torquing of bolts and nuts
    • Lock wire
    • Electrical bonding preparation
  • Hardware installation

    • Nutplates and standoffs
    • Hi-lok, Hi-Lite, rivets and Cherry Max
  • Bushing installation

    • Thermal fit and interference fit
    • Honing after installation
  • Mechanical bonding

    • Adhesive film bonding
    • Surface preparation
    • 2-components adhesive
  • Wiring harness and assembly

    • Electrical testing
