Subtractive Manufactured Parts

Classical machining (milling, turning, drilling) of parts, also known as subtractive manufacturing, remains one of the most frequent solutions. Technologies are well established since decades and resulting material properties well known. Due to the large amount of available manufacturers, they usually present a cost effective solution.

Space Structures specialises in high performance solutions using:

  • High performance polymers
  • High strength aluminium
  • Titanium

A matter of course is to consider appropriately:

  • Heat treatment, e.g. for stress relief, annealing and tempering
  • Surface finishing like plating, anodising, chemical conversion, optical or thermal coating

Space Structures has successfully optimised the mass and/or functionality of existing machined parts, without changing architecture, manufacturing technology or impacting other system performance aspects, for many projects.

Let us also help you to get the optimum performance!
