Manufacturing, Inc. manufactured these titanium inner fan
ducts designed for use in a commercial aviation application. Working
from the customer supplied 2D CAD files, our designers developed the 3D
models required for manufacturing. The duct is composed of AMS4911
titanium, and varied in thicknesses from .029" to .109", with overall
dimensions of 24.000" in width, and 16.000" in height.
of hot forming and hot rolling, CNC milling, and punching.
Once the components were formed, we welded them using an atmosphere
controlled TIG welding technique. Next, the fan duct
was solution heat treated and stress relived, with the finished
part showcasing a cleaned finish. Tolerances of
±.002" were met throughout the manufacturing process; in
addition each part received metagraphic examination to verify the
integrity of the part. To learn more about this project, or about our
