With Bulge Forming, PCC Aerostructures can produce large skins and fairings to tight tolerances with minimal material thinning.
We have developed and manufactured our own bulge forming equipment specifically designed to produce a range of unique components. This dedicated process means consistency and repeatability to our customers that other forming methods would not provide.
The hydro-static bulge forming process adds to PCC Aerostructures' wide range of forming capabilities and is currently used to produce lip skins and fairings for a variety of large commercial aircraft. Dedicated tooling saves our customer machine set-up time and this process is particularly adapted for long production runs with monthly shipments
