This facility would be in close proximity to machining and special processing facilities and would support both engine and structural sheet metal forming. Phase-1 of this facility would consist of sheet metal cutting, brake forming, hydro forming / fluid forming, heat treatment for aluminum and assembly operations like riveting, etc.
“Setting up of the sheet metal processing facility will enable QuEST and its current customers to graduate towards integrated sourcing and assemblies. It reiterates our commitment to set up an ecosystem for the supply chain catering to global aerospace industry requirement. Combined with the rest of our capabilities it positions us uniquely in the aerospace industry in India,” said Aravind Melligeri, Chairman & Co-founder, QuEST.
QuEST has appointed Nicholas Belbin, as an advisory board member at QuEST Manufacturing to leverage his extensive experience in aerospace sheet metal processing. He has been instrumental in establishing FMS and computerized systems for various forming processes like brake forming, hydro-forming, hot forming etc. He has also written detailed specifications for forming and processing of sheet metal fabrication and assembly.
QuEST is participating in the Farnborough International Airshow 2008 – UK, during which, it would be showcasing its end-to-end capabilities in aerospace engineering which include design and drafting/modeling, analysis/simulation, design automation, technical documentation, instrumentation and controls, electrical wiring/harness, avionics, embedded systems, manufacturing engineering, prototyping, in-house precision machining, sheet metal work and special processing.
