With Bulge Forming, PCC Aerostructures can produce large skins and fairings to tight tolerances  with minimal material thinning.

We have developed and manufactured our own bulge forming  equipment specifically designed to produce a range of unique components. This  dedicated process means consistency and repeatability to our customers that  other forming methods would not provide.

The hydro-static bulge forming process adds to PCC Aerostructures' wide range of  forming capabilities and is currently used to produce lip skins and fairings for  a variety of large commercial aircraft. Dedicated tooling saves our customer  machine set-up time and this process is particularly adapted for long production  runs with monthly shipments
