AS9100.D Aerospace Machining

Around the clock aerospace, AS9100 D machining.

24/7 machining of aerospace parts, components and sub-assemblies – machined to quality management system AS9100 Revision D.

Energy Generation & Valve Machining

24/7 Complex Machining for Energy Generation: Severe service check valve machining, complex components for power generation, oil & gas industry components & mechanical sub-assemblies, managed by AS9100.D QMS.

Di-Spark manufacture components from hard & hardened materials, using integrated, multi-process machining technologies such as automated 5 axis milling, large machining, multi-task automated turning, spark EDM with robotic tool-change capability, and clean-cut wire EDM.

Complex, Prismatic & Intricate Precision Machining

Di-Spark Ltd operate aviation & aero-engine machining, certified to AS9100 Revision D.

Operating multi-process machining cells for Automated wire cut EDM, multi-operation die sink EDM with robot arm tool-change, automated mill-turn and multi axis mill-turn, Di-Spark manufacture the highest quality precision components within lean manufacturing principles.

5 Axis Machining

Di-Spark operate AS9100 D, Aerospace 5 axis machining. Our 5 axis machining cell is managed & optimised to manufacture zero defect parts & components for aerospace and highly regulated markets. The 5 Axis components we manufacture are often destined for mission-critical operation.

Spark Erosion (Spark EDM, Die Sink)

Spark Erosion – also known as spark EDM or die sink, uses a machined electrode to ‘die sink’ its form into the component, hence the term – die dink. Geometries that are impossible to produce by conventional machining can be machined by Spark Erosion EDM. Spark EDM can also machine hard materials.

Wire Erosion (Wire EDM)

Wire Erosion, or wire EDM, uses a wire electrode as the ‘cutting tool’. Wire Erosion, or wire EDM is ideal for manufacturing components from hard or difficult-to-machine materials, typically manufacturing components for the Energy Sector, Severe Service Valves, Satellite, Formula 1, Oil & Gas & Aerospace.

Aerospace Mill Turn

AS9100 D Aerospace – Multi-Axis Turning centres converge two metal cutting technologies into a single machine. Components which were traditionally processed on multiple machines can now be ‘machined-in-one’. This technology allows Di-Spark to be lean, efficient and cost effective

Large/Heavy Machining

Di-Spark’s large machining cell utilises the latest large-component manufacturing technology. Working alongside partners at +GF+ AgieCharmilles, we use Mikron HPM 1350U high performance milling centres for processes ranging from heavy rough machining to precise finish machining.
