Custom Fabrication of a Torque Tube for the Aerospace Industry

A high-tech aerospace client in Philadelphia invited Edgar Industries to produce a 27,000-lb. torque tube to be used in a flight simulator application. We used our Toshiba BF130-B CNC boring mill with rolled 3-inch steel to craft a tube part that was 88.625 OD X 82.500 inches long with perfect-proportioned tolerances. After welding flanges to the tube, we sandblasted the metal and appled primer. All this work was performed and finished within 45 hours.

For other examples of our work for high-tech aerospace and DoD clients, contact Edgar Industries today, or consult our website further.
