At the Cleveland Deburring Machine Company (CDMC), our designers and manufacturers have had the pleasure of working with a great number of different clients from all areas of manufacturing over the years. We’ve built deburring machines at CDMC to address a number of different types of metals and parts, including those that are exotic in nature and highly specialized. Most of these requests come from the U.S. aerospace and defense industry, a market segment we’re proud to work with.
The products produced by the aerospace and defense industry here in the U.S. represent $300 billion in annual sales. Companies in the industry directly employ over 1 million American workers. At the same time, the industry creates almost three times that number of jobs through partnerships with other companies that provide products and services to the aerospace and defense industry. In other words, the industry is a massive employer that helps to keep the national economy in top shape. At the same time, the aerospace and defense industry boosts local economies in the cities that play host to companies who do business with the aerospace and defense industry. For our perspective here at CDMC, we relish our relationship with member companies in the aerospace and defense industry, due to the fact that they allow us to design and develop deburring solutions that are tuned to their special materials and parts handling needs.
The aerospace and defense industry populated buy a small number of very large companies that make use of a number of exotic materials, such as nickel and titanium alloys. These materials (and more like them) are utilized in the development of aircraft and defense mechanism parts by some of the biggest names in the industry. As nickel, titanium, and other similar alloys can be very difficult to machine, there is an ongoing need for deburring solutions to address edge quality and parts finishing concerns. This is never more essential than with critical machine parts that go into the building of multi-million dollar aerospace and defense systems.
As with any manufacturing business, the aerospace and defense industry relies on metal cutting, metal forming and metal finishing to produce the parts that help build their systems. Of course, this is where the similarities between the aerospace and defense industry and any other manufacturer tend to end. Nonetheless, our customers in the aerospace and defense industry require top-quality deburring and parts finishing solutions.
At CDMC, we’re happy to help them define their needs, design solutions that work as expected, and keep their manufacturing pieces free of rough or jagged edges that might be a detriment to the programs they serve here in the U.S. and abroad.
