Thin-Walled Ring-Type Products for Aerospace Applications

M-Tech, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Impro, is a precision machining parts manufacturer supplying high-complexity and high-precision products to the world’s top players in the Aerospace, IGT, and Oil &Gas industries. M-Tech is specialized in the manufacture of customized thin-walled ring-type products of diameters up to 1,200 mm (47.2”) for compressor, combustion, and turbine of aero engines and APUs for world-renowned OEMs in the aerospace industry.

Our main processes for producing this type of product include:
Turning- Size Limit:  Φ650×860mm (25.6×33.9”); Accuracy: 0.01mm
Milling- Size Limit: 2150×1000×790mm (84.6×39.4 ×31.1”); Accuracy: 0.005mm
Welding (Brazing, GTAW, Resistance Seam)- Size Limit: 914×762×1829mm (36”×30” ×72”)
Assembly- Mechanical & Manual; Size Limit: Φ1000×700mm (Φ39.4×27.6”); Accuracy: 0.05mm

We employ cutting-edge 5-axis vertical machining centers, 3 and 4-axis horizontal and vertical machining centers, and CNC lathes to produce these products. Our plant facility is certified to AS 9100D and ISO 9001:2015. A host of special processes are available in-house to ensure quality and shortened lead time. They include:

  • Heat treatment (Nadcap-certified)
  • Testing- CMM/Hardness/Flow test
  • NDT(Nadcap-certified)- FPI/MPI/LP/Borescope/UT
  • Welding (Nadcap-certified) -Vacuum brazing, GTAW, Resistance seam welding, E-Beam Welding
  • Mechanical and manual assembly

Thin-walled ring machining and control of deformation are our strengths. The process also includes surface treatment such as anodizing and Chemical film, Chromium plating, Grinding, Shot peening, and Passivation. Raw materials that we process include bar stock, plate/sheet, forgings, and castings.

Typical products in this category include compressor cases, retainer rings, dome, combustor support rings, manifold rings, and seal rings, to name just a few.
