A client in the aerospace industry approached CIM Metals to manufacture this protective shield from 0.250” thick manganese plate. The finished parts line the outside casings of a large turbine engine, configured to contain the turbine blades in case of service failure. The larger of the two plates pictured is bolted inside the casing and was manufactured to tolerances of +/- 0.03” using our microplasma cutting system. The high-precision smaller plate was fabricated with our abrasive waterjet process to tolerances of +/- 0.003”. With shifts running around the clock, CIM Metals produced the full customer order of 1,000 pieces within three days.
