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 – 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, 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.
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
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.
Di-Spark operate a 24/7 rapid response machining capability. Our rapid response aerospace machining service offers the latest precision machining technologies, certified to AS9100D, with a dedicated account manager and CAD Design expertise to achieve lean, efficient machining.
Di-Spark Ltd are certified to AS9100D for the manufacture of complex parts, components and sub-assemblies for Defence, Space and Security Sectors. Di-Spark are also signatories to the SC21 Supply Chain Improvement programme – removing red tape and practising lean manufacturing principles.
