Our DNA is in metrology, and it is through this lens that we approach manufacturing.
Component verification is not just a problem that needs to be solved but is implicit in the process and methodology of how we manufacture to specification. Combined with our culture and passion for challenge, we are uniquely qualified to manage manufacturing responsibility for complex, mission critical aerospace components.
Applying our inspection expertise, we have created a methodology that allows us to verify component compliance at the raw material stage, before any chips are cut. From there, we define the exact path that will get us there. The result = no surprises.
We call it “Starting with the end in mind” and we have found it to be uniquely Cascade.
Cascade’s quality process enables the commitment to zero quality escapes that is required for mission critical aerospace applications.
Castings: Managing Variability
‘Start with the end in mind’ processing enables Cascade to control the variability of castings.
Thin Wall Configurations
Cascade’s proprietary machining methodology makes controlling thin walls during machining possible.
High Value Raw Material
Incorporating years of metrology expertise throughout the process and a culture of right the first time protects high value raw material.
Cascade has experience with most aerospace hard alloys, with a focus on titanium and inconel.
Cascade offers complex assembly and supply chain management to provide finished, assembly-ready components for our customers.
Machining Center of Excellence
We continually and proactively invest in only the best equipment. Our current equipment utilization allows for additional workload, and we’re ready with capital and planning to bring on additional equipment to answer the demand from the marketplace. Our capital planning is focused on offering our customers risk abatement through equipment redundancy and always being in position to take on the next challenge.
Our world-class metrology lab is a 4,000 square feet, temperature controlled lab, (68 +/- 1 degrees F). It is ISO9001 / AS9100 rev C-registered and NIST traceable.
