Retro is pioneering the manufacture of many ‘Legacy’ Critical & Sensitive parts for aerospace products & appliances. Primarily supporting propulsion systems, we are leading the way in low volume, complex production of these challenging heritage components. Production engineering the manufacture of critical aero parts attracts a significant amount of meticulous consideration and controlled structure to the sealed processes to ensure repeated success. This is done by our team of qualified and experienced of engineers in their dedicated engineering offices.
Our state-of-the-art facilities range, depth & breadth of capabilities are the envy of the industry. All disciplines of conventional machining are carried out onsite. VMC’s utilising the latest CAD-CAM software for 3,4 & 5 axis machining together with in-cycle gauging and tool setting. Turning Centres programmed both offline & conversationally, high speed repeatable production with bar fed & volume parts catching capability. High precision surfaces finished using Internal, External, Profile & Form Grinding. Incredibly demanding unique re-entry camshaft profile grinding & diamond forming of tungsten carbide are in our portfolio.
Pushing the boundaries of technology, we aim high. From Hard Milling 65 + Rockwell materials with Super high speed 25,000 to 90,000 RPM spindles, to Spline & Gear tooth profile generation using turning centres we look to adopt the latest techniques.
