In addition to internal product development and fabrication projects for its aerospace customers, the Jamco America machine shop is available for contract projects from the aerospace industry.
In nearly 30 years of operation, the Jamco machine shop has expanded its capabilities from basic machining to extensive, cutting edge equipment. The shop’s capabilities include: sheetmetal bending, profiling, and forming; countersinking, dimpling, riveting, and other preparations for sub-assembly; large 4-axis Horizontal milling and machining; smaller 3- and 4-axis Vertical machining; and lathe turning for round components. The large 4-axis machine centres hold 240 tools each, and are accompanied by an automated 36 pallet cell, for highly flexible, efficient milling 24/7, ensuring rapid turnaround time.
One of the shop’s capabilities is delivered by its freeform CNC tube bender, installed in summer 2020. This machine forms a round tube into a tubing frame, and is used to produce Jamco’s Venture business class seats with embedded aluminium edge trim. The shop also houses a digital cutter/router for composite materials, open cell core, textiles, and more. Used traditionally in the sign-making industry, Jamco has adapted this technology for aircraft seating and other innovative projects.
Thanks to its extensive machining capabilities, Jamco America is able to deliver products in rapid lead-times. This rapid turnaround enables fast-paced product development, a necessity in aerospace and other highly demanding industries. The machine shop’s extensive capabilities enable Jamco to offer customisability, helping customers to differentiate their products from competitors.
