A Tampa, Florida aircraft manufacturer found itself in a pinch. Their normal supplier was a local machine shop on the lower coast, wiped out by a hurricane just as their order was due. They called upon Owens to complete the job in a rush. The components they needed machined were aircraft door stops, crafted from titanium. As a crucial part of an airplane, ensuring all doors are secure during flight, the direction of the titanium plate was critical to the long-term strength of the component. Precision machining services – including 5 axis and micromachining – were utilized to achieve the exact tolerances this component required.
