Hard and Soft Alloys for Aerospace and Firearms
Taber is able to offer both hard alloys as well as soft alloys for aerospace and firearms, which is fairly unique in the industry. One of the most exciting segments in the hard alloy group is firearms. We have discovered that many firearms manufacturers are small businesses. So, what we offer is stocking a custom shape for them, or producing a generic shape that they can machine individually into their own profile. We provide a solution not only to large businesses, but to any small business too!
We’re also able to offer distribution centers and larger manufacturers of firearms the exact near-net shape that they need.
Furthermore, in regards to the alloys for aerospace market, we supply all of the major manufacturers in the US. We do large press hard alloy extrusions, which is for a very limited supply market and provides additional value to our customers. We’re very unique in that aspect.
Aluminum alloys have long been a dominant material in the manufacture of aerospace vehicles, and due to the ever-evolving nature of aluminum alloys, they are likely to stay around for a long time.
Aluminum is used In:
- Fuselage/pressure cabin
- Seat/cargo tracks
- Floor beams
- Lower and upper horizontal stabilization
- Upper wing skin/stringers and spars
- Lower wing skin/spars/stringers
Taber offers the full range of aluminum alloys for all of our aluminum shapes, including hard, soft, marine, and armor grade alloys. Need specific material or alloy?
