In-House Composites Capabilities
The combination of four (4) autoclaves, and various vacuum-equipped bonding ovens affords a tremendous versatility in equipment, allowing us to handle a wide range of structural bonding situations. Parts currently being produced include flat honeycomb panels of various sizes, metal-to-metal bonded assemblies, single and double contoured sandwich structures, bulkheads, floor panels, wing panels, and fuselage sections.
Temperature in our autoclaves range from 250° up to 400° and pressures up to 100 PSI. HCOA added a fourth autoclave in 2018 measuring 10’x30′ working inside diameter. Our clean room meets OEM requirements controlling temperature, humidity, and particle count.
