Part of Brussels plant is dedicated to the production, testing and delivery of very high precision components and assemblies for Thrust Vectoring Systems and similar elements.
Parts production involves NC lathes, precision 5 axes milling centers, special heat and surface treatments for steel alloys, as well as advanced coatings.
To ensure a precision that can be as high as one micron (one thousandth of a mm !), a metrology service is available to calibrate both machines and measuring devices.
Electronic boards designed by SABCA are built in a separate workshop.
The various elements are assembled and tested before they can be cleared for service. These tests involve electrical response, hydraulic pressure, vacuum leak test, vibrations, dynamic response, etc…
