With an extensive range of advanced materials and processes, Aerodine Composites is well-positioned to support the specific needs of today’s military personnel. Military and Defense customers highly value our key strengths: weight reduction, outside-the-box problem solving, corrosion resistance, part consolidation, and industry-leading time-to-market. Soldiers globally are committed to their duty of protecting the country and we are here to support their mission-critical objectives while keeping them safe.
Materials traditionally used in the defense sector such as titanium, steel, and aluminum all present severe disadvantages with weight and maneuverability, especially due to continually evolving military threats. The inherent material characteristics of our composites are ideally suited for military, defense, and security products, namely in terms of:
The engineered composite structures enable significant weight savings, high payload and fuel efficiency, and highly portable end-use components.
Composites have anisotropic strength properties, meaning they are stronger in one direction. This means stacking multiple composite layers in different orientations allows the fibers to bear multi-directional forces and loads.
Composites have a nearly infinite fatigue life. When used in highly stressed areas, composite components far outlast similarly designed metallic structures based on fatigue loading.
The corrosion resistance of composites is advantageous in challenging environments since they do not rust or corrode like traditional metals.
Composite components can be molded to almost any shape, allowing designers to create aerodynamic and aesthetically pleasing shapes with minimal effort.
“As far I am concerned, if a part can be manufactured out of carbon fiber or composite materials, Aerodine will be making that part for us.”
“Aerodine Composites is an important asset to our company and I have absolute confidence in all of their products. We have example after example of programs that stand as a testament to their ability to get complex jobs done right the first time.”
“We have used Aerodine exclusively for our composites manufacturing needs for over 8 years now. They are very professional, highly responsive to our needs, and have been known to work many manufacturing miracles for our company. I highly recommend Aerodine for anyone looking for quality.”
“We’ve never had any problems with any of Aerodine’s work. If we hurt a part or need new, their turnaround is very quick and done right. When they tell you something will be done on a certain day at a certain time, it is — that is important to us.”
“Aerodine Composites is very accommodating when it comes to manufacturing our complex assemblies. They have always been timely and reliable, and the quality of everything is second to none. They bend over backward to make our timing which is usually “order today, need it yesterday” and once you talk to them you never need to worry about it again.”
“I appreciate that they are not set in their ways that they will make changes for me provided it doesn’t compromise safety. I’ve purchased loads of parts from them over the years and have also worked with them on repairs. The repairs are as good, if not better than when I damaged them.”
“The parts are well-done, finish quality is A+, delivery times are great and they always help us out in a bind. It’s hard to say which is better, their service or their parts.”
In 2003, Aerodine Composites became a registered FAA Repair Station (License #RDMR624X) in an effort to optimize its internal quality control to align with one of the toughest industry standards. Operating with our FAA Part 145 Repair Station license enables us to optimize our internal quality control and maintain better compliance not only for the aerospace industry but also for the motorsports, military/defense, and medical industries. Our active FAA inspections ensure strict adherence to federal guidelines in the areas of training, process control, materials storage, damage tolerance evaluation, technical data, drug and alcohol abatement, and recordkeeping across all the industries the Company supports.
