Engine and wing designs are growing in complexity. Automation is transforming production. Aircraft materials are becoming lighter and stronger. And regulatory requirements are tightening. Today’s aerospace manufacturers need to be nimble—they must innovate faster and drive efficiencies while continually meeting critical demands for safety, security, and reliability.
At Tri Tool, we help you innovate faster. For over 45 years, we have partnered with the world’s leading aerospace companies to design, develop, and manufacture standard and custom tooling and machining solutions under increasingly tighter timelines, tolerances, and budgets.
Whether you need a standard, PurposeBuilt™ machine, a custom engineered MissionBuilt™ tool, a reconstruction of a discontinued part, or on-site field services, Tri Tool is your partner in innovation, helping you increase productivity, reduce downtime, and accelerate results.
Leading manufacturer of reusable rockets uses custom precision micro-boring system from Tri Tool for difficult-to-reach weld root penetration
One of the world’s most innovative private aerospace manufacturers, was fabricating a two-part small diffuser nozzle weldment at their Hawthorne facility when engineers noticed a small—but significant—problem. The arc welding process they were using had left a weld root penetration inside the nozzle chamber. If not removed, the weld root penetration would disrupt the flow of fluid and compromise the nozzle’s performance.
Discover how the private aerospace company avoided redoing its entire fabrication process by working with Tri Tool to design and develop a custom tube squaring machine to remove the difficult-to-reach weld root penetration.
