DESIGN, FLY, CERTIFY, MANUFACTURE


Whether it’s for an OEM, civil helicopter operator, the U.S. military, or a foreign military, this AS9100 certificated manufacturer has the capability to complete virtually any project – from concept engineering to manufacturing and every point in between.


Engineering design is one of Aerometals’ core strengths, and this power is unusual given the size of the company. Of the company’s 160-person talent pool, 30-plus are mechanical, electrical and aeronautical engineers.


“Our competitive advantage lies in the competence of our people,” Senior Director of Business Development Tony Bohm reflected. “For example, the technical prowess in our engineering department is on par with much larger aerospace companies. Our team’s makeup is a perfect balance of experience and youth that not only brings high levels of technical competence to projects, but also extreme levels of innovation when developing solutions.”


Principal Engineer Josh Podesta runs CFD simulation for an inlet barrier filter design.


The integrity and character of Aerometals is reflected in its innovative projects such as the MD 500 engine oil cooler impeller. It’s not the sexiest or most exciting part on the aircraft, but face it, it’s a really important part. As it turns out, the part’s design and construction was the same for 40 years.


Formed of more than 30 individual parts that were brazed together, the oil cooler impeller frequently experienced cracking and would need to be repaired or replaced. Seeking a better solution for its customers, Aerometals designed and certified a one-piece impeller made from a single block of aluminum on a five-axis CNC technology, which eliminated the common failure mode.


This leads us into the fly and certify side of the Aerometals business. This is the area that sets it apart from the competition, especially in the helicopter industry. It’s the area Aerometals has really invested in, and focused on, in hopes of growing its business. It’s one thing to manufacture a helicopter part that already exists on specifications. It’s a whole other world to engineer a solution from scratch, manufacture it, get it into a helicopter and into the air through flight testing, then have the part pass a rigorous certification process with the FAA.
