Sheet Polishing

Sheet Polishing

For Latour Aerospace, quality is our number one priority. We are committed to providing meticulous metal sheet polishing and skin finishing for the aerospace industry.

We don’t stop until a metal sheet is polished to perfection. To polish, or “finish” flat metal sheets, we utilize abrasive belts to remove any blemishes on a metal’s surface, including rust, pits, handling marks, and blisters. Metal sheets can be polished either wet or dry, and require a different belts depending on the type of metal or alloy. For example, steel is first abraded with a highly coarse grit belt, and then, as the surface becomes increasingly smoother, finer belts for a stainless finish.

From standard sheet metal to leading edges or winglets, we are capable of polishing and buffing parts in a range of sizes and shapes. Latour Aerospace provides super finish polished skins and can uniformly match skins no matter the length of production time.

For sheet metal without the faintest scratch or mark, top industry providers rely on Latour Aerospace. Our superior production methods and attention to detail has gained us an outstanding reputation. Time and time again, we have proven ourselves to be experts in meeting the demands of the aerospace industry. For consistently reliable sheet metal polishing and buffing services, call Latour Aerospace today—516-802-0760.

Metal Testing

Metal Testing

Latour Aerospace, an accredited provider of metallurgical testing and analysis services, has been approved to conduct a broad spectrum of tests to suit your needs. We understand the critical nature of metallurgical testing, and complete our services with precision and accuracy.

Metallurgical testing, or metal testing, is used to gauge the chemical and physical properties of metal. Metal undergoing testing is subjected to a variety of highly specialized tests, from humidity to bending. These tests ultimately determine the identity and composition of a metal, but also bring to light any flaws and inconsistencies. Because of our fundamental understanding of aerospace specifications, we are a trusted resource in the industry for metallurgical testing services.

In order to guarantee the quality and longevity of your airplane parts, Latour Aerospace stays on top of the latest technological trends in metallurgical testing. Our skilled technicians our metal laboratories are here to give you the knowledge you need.

Latour Aerospace does metallurgical testing right; with efficiency and painstaking care. A key component of product research and development, metallurgical testing helps suppliers and manufacturers know their products inside and out.

Heat Treating

Heat Treating

Latour Aerospace offers a wide range of heat treating services for the aerospace industry. Our advanced heat treating machinery and customer-based approach make us the number one choice for heat treating services. No matter the size or scope of your order, we will always cater to your specific needs.

Heat treating, or simply “heat treat,” is a process used to alter the physical or chemical property of a material. By applying extremely hot or cold temperatures, Latour Aerospace can soften or harden metal to meet your exact specifications. The heat treating process includes intricate steps, from quenching, which is the rapid and controlled cooling of hot parts, to tempering, which is the heating of a hardened metal to increase ductility. Whether you require heat treating for a custom or industry standard-sized aerospace part, we can meet your demand.

From design to delivery, we will be there every step of the way of the heat treating process to ensure your ultimate satisfaction. We follow international standards of quality control, so no detail is ever overlooked.

At Latour Aerospace, we are dedicated to providing high-quality heat treating to the aerospace industry at a competitive price.  State-of-the-line technology matched with an expert staff make us the go-to provider for heat treating services. Our customer-based approach and proven track record guarantee your satisfaction. To find out about our wide range of other aerospace services, please call—516-802-0760.

Shearing

Shearing

Latour Aerospace is a metal fabrication specialist with a host of shearing capabilities. Our cutting-edge tools, matched with our expert technicians,  are well suited to handle any metal shearing service you may require.

Shearing is a type of metal fabrication to cut straight lines into flat sheet stock. Our top-of-the-line shears work in a powerful scissor-like motion, and can easily handle materials such as aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, titanium, zinc, mild steel, and stainless steel. Sheets of metal are sheared into smaller dimensions in preparation to be fabricated into aerospace parts, and eventually polished. We also offer unique metal sheeting cuts to produce non-standard components.

At Latour Aerospace, we have an impressive range of shearing capabilities and can tackle extreme lengths, widths, and thicknesses. No shearing job is too difficult.

Latour Aerospace is a trusted provider of metal fabrication for the aerospace industry. Our superior service makes us the number one choice for metal shearing services. To hear more about our variety of other metal fabrication services, such as plate and bar cutting, please call —516-802-0760.

Plate and Bar Cutting

Plate and Bar Cutting

At Latour Aerospace, we provide precise bar cutting and plate sawing services at a competitive price. Our full processing center allows us to complete numerous metal fabrication services under one roof, including metal shearing, precision grinding, metal sheet polishing, and milling.

Bar cutting and plate sawing are both types of metal fabrication services. Our bar cutting machines and slate saws are built to cut bars and flat metals in preparation for further manufacturing. We can handle brass, titanium, and steel bars and plates, among other heavy metals and alloys. Whether you need square cuts, or a rectangular or round bar, rely on Latour Aerospace for your customized dimensions and tolerances. We can even provide metric measurements, if needed.

Latour Aerospace is devoted to offering significant value and satisfaction to all of its customers in search of bar cutting and plate sawing services.

Latour Aerospace is an expert in handling bar cutting and plate sawing orders, whether customized or standard.

Milling

Milling

Latour Aerospace utilizes the latest chemical milling technologies to produce high-quality parts for top industry providers. As an alternative to mechanical operations like CNC, chemical milling is a cost-effective and highly controlled method to reduce the weight of airplane parts.

Milling (also known as chemical or photochemical machining) is a chemical process to remove precise amounts of material from aircraft components.  During the process, a metal surface is partially masked in a chemical solution and then submerged in etching chemicals. The unwanted material dissolves, and the desired shape remains. All types of metals in any size or shape can undergo the process of milling, making it easy to manufacture complex contours that would be impossible to obtain through traditional machining.

Latour Aerospace boasts a wide range of capabilities, including milling aluminum, stainless steel and titanium metals.[S1]  Because material is removed from the exterior surface, chemical milling can achieve wall thickness of exacting tolerances (.020’”) without being warped. Once complete, the final part is then rigorously inspected for conformance to blueprint specifications.

At Latour Aerospace, we are dedicated to providing certified chemical milling services to meet the demands of the aerospace industry. In an evolving market, we stay on top of the trends by utilizing the latest
