SST Technology Invests in Aerospace Pipe Manufacturing and Welding Capability
SST Technology continues to make headway into the Aerospace sector through its investments into a dedicated Aircraft Engine pipe manufacturing capability. Manufacturing processes undertaken inhouse include fully controlled CNC pipe bending, automated orbital and manual TIG welding, precision 5 axis machining, sheet metal forming and non-destructive testing techniques including geometric and dye penetrant. SST also provide full engineering support from a clean sheet through to design for manufacture support.
The newly expanded capability ensures SST can offer a complete end to end service including the design and manufacture of incredibly accurate yet modular jigs, meaning multiple iterations of pipes can be produced in a very short amount of time.
SST will use this capability to support its valuable Aerospace customers in rapid new product introduction for next generation civil and military engines and for a selection of legacy programmes.
