Diversified Machine Systems (DMS) has a proven track record in the aerospace industry, with customers ranging from Fortune 500 to individual part manufacturers. In order to remain competitive and reduce costs, companies in this evolving industry are producing parts out of materials such as lightweight plastics and composites, rather than metals.
The use of strong, lightweight composites such as Fiber Reinforced Plastics/Polymers (FRP's) and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastics/Polymers (CFRP's) are revolutionizing the aerospace industry. Planes made with CFRP wings and fuselages weigh up to 35% less, and are more aerodynamic, stronger, and corrosion-resistant than aircraft built using traditional materials. In addition, lighter aircraft require less fuel to fly, which lowers yearly operating costs. More durable than steel or aluminum, CFRPs are so strong that at one-quarter the density of steel, they are two to three times stronger. Not only that, they're significantly lighter as compared to metal.
The use of carbon fiber materials speeds up the production process and reduces manufacturing costs. DMS CNC 3 and 5 axis routers and machining centers are applicable in all facets of the aerospace fabrication process, from design and development to final construction and fabrication. Our machines are used to create small scale aircraft prototypes out of materials such as clay and foam during the design process. DMS routers are also employed to cut, shape and drill plastic, metal, and a variety of composite parts used in the cabin, cockpit, and air frame of the aircraft.
