CNC Machining and Fabrication

CNC Machining in Chico CA.

With the industry trend to supply smaller lengths of extrusions and reduce inventory levels, Aircraft Extrusion Company expanded its capabilities to provide CNC machining in Chico, California.A common question we get asked is how we machine the extrusion. In many cases, we use a larger extruded shape and mill the dimension in order to conform to the requested Tiernay or Boeing print. As far as tolerance goes, our machined tolerance is within +/-.002 on dimentions, much tighter than extruded print requires. The material we use is the same alloy, temper and specification so there are no changes in the chemical or mechanical properties. Ideally we like to machine 3-4ft sections however we have milled up to 12ft lengths.
