Jamco America, an aircraft interior products supplier and turnkey integrator in the aerospace industry, is highlighting its extensive machining capabilities that enable the company to meet rapid turnaround times and extensive customization needs. In addition to internal product development and fabrication projects for its aerospace customers, the Jamco America machine shop is available for contract projects from the aerospace industry.
In nearly 30 years of operation, the Jamco machine shop has expanded its capabilities from basic machining to extensive, cutting edge equipment. The shop’s capabilities include: sheet metal bending, profiling, and forming; countersinking, dimpling, riveting, and other preparations for sub-assembly; large 4-axis Horizontal milling and machining; smaller 3- and 4-axis Vertical machining; and lathe turning for round components. The large 4-axis machine centers hold 240 tools each, and are accompanied by an automated 36 pallet cell, for highly flexible, efficient milling 24/7, ensuring rapid turnaround time.
One of the shop’s most unique capabilities is delivered by its freeform CNC tube bender, installed in summer 2020. This machine forms a round tube into a unique tubing frame, and is used to produce Jamco’s industry-leading Venture business class seats with embedded aluminum edge trim. The shop also houses a digital cutter/router for composite materials, open cell core, textiles, and more. Used traditionally in the sign-making industry, Jamco has adapted this technology for aircraft seating and other innovative projects.
Thanks to its extensive machining capabilities, Jamco America says it is able to deliver products in “unrivaled rapid lead times.” This rapid turnaround enables fast-paced product development, a necessity in aerospace and other highly demanding industries. The shop’s capabilities enable Jamco to offer ultimate customizability, helping customers to differentiate their products from competitors, they say.
