Pushing boundaries

Zenith Tecnica can produce lightweight titanium structures that are ideal for bonding to composites. Using Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology, many structures that were previously difficult or impossible to make are now available with a minimum order quantity of one unit. This makes Zenith Tecnica a preferred option for anyone looking at mass customisation of componentry of small to large aerospace structures.

Zenith Tecnica is AS9100:RevD certified and has produced many flight-certified components for satellites that are currently in orbit. Zenith Tecnica can supply EBM components but also offer a turn-key design and manufacture solution that provides a finished component. Zenith Tecnica can determine from your engineering drawings what is achievable with EBM and what features require post-processing. For any post-processing that cannot be completed onsite, our established subcontractors can post-process and finish the component for you.

Subcontracting is available for Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) heat treatment, machining, welding of large assemblies, and certain polishing and surface treatments. Zenith Tecnica uses GOM ATOS 3D scanning equipment to inspect and conform complex geometries for First Article Inspection Reports (FAIR) and production conformance. Please contact us for more information about our capabilities or with your specific requirements.

Zenith Tecnica can also offer Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM) and advice for getting the most out of the EBM AM process. Whether it is determining what geometry is possible, how to get the best finish, what tolerances are achievable, or simply how to reduce the cost – we will work with you to achieve your targets. Contact us to begin working through your concepts whether it is for componentry already in production or in product development.
