Crippa’s experience for the aeronautics industry
For more than 70 years, Crippa has worked in cooperation with the main civil and military aircraft manufacturers, providing turnkey solutions for bending and marking tubes used in the aeronautics sector. Crippa offers a range of extremely rigid and reliable tube bending machines that makes it possible to produce very high quality bends right from the first work process cycle.The aeronautics sector does require high standards of quality and precision in order to ensure the direct and indirect safety features of its aircraft.
Usually, bending and marking operations are required on tubes made of particularly “fine” materials which are both durable and light-weight, such as aluminium, titanium and Inconel; and with thin thicknesses and shapes often having very small radii. Crippa meets the needs of the sector with tube bending machines specially developed to process these tubes and meet aeronautics standards.
Our processes result in precise, repeatable tubes without wrinkles or marks, which are extremely faithful to the construction drawings produced by in-depth engineering studies. In addition to the solutions for bending and marking aerospace tubes, Crippa also produces specific patented equipment for the aeronautics sector. Besides other ad hoc equipment, our technical staff has produced the “fish” mandrel which has spheres developed especially for producing precise bends on very strong materials. A photographic overview of some of the jobs done by Crippa tube bending machines in the aeronautics sector can be seen below.
