Our Ingenuity Helped a New, Complex Design Take Flight

When a major aircraft engine manufacturer came to us with an unusual design, they weren’t even sure the part could be manufactured. It had a complex shape, it needed to be made with extreme precision from an exotic material.

Oberg’s engineering team crafted the solution. Working with the manufacturer, we designed a custom tooling solution that included unique, internal temperature controls. We also designed a custom stamping press and EDM process to develop prototype parts that performed perfectly. Since the component needed to be burr-free, our team developed specialized fixtures to smooth the parts using our proprietary MDP® technology. We then worked to prevent out-of-tolerance deviations by identifying and correcting dimensional changes through careful process monitoring. In short order, we delivered a customized process that allowed their unique part to be produced in volume.
