In the past, many of these components were only manufacturable as castings.

Concepts NREC has expanded their portfolio of manufacturing solutions to include 5-axis tube and port machining for volutes, housings, exhaust control systems, deep pockets, and manifolds. Prior to this, many of these components were only manufacturable as castings.

“Clients in the aircraft and space exploration sectors are increasingly looking to Concepts NREC as a full-service solutions provider to build entire rigs including complex housings and volutes,” reports Mathew Cardente, Manufacturing Applications Specialist. “This new capability compliments our core competency in manufacturing advanced turbomachinery flowpath components such as impellers and rotors quite well as it allows us to manage the entire fit-up and assembly process with a high degree of quality, precision, and control.”


“This new capability provides a significant benefit to those customers looking for Concepts NREC to manufacture complete rig assemblies for research or production applications,” comments David Pincince, Business Development & Marketing Manager. “Our ability to control the entire process from initial design to final manufacturing and assembly provides unique synergies that few in the industry can offer. Our clients benefit from having a trusted partner who can see the big picture and provide them with valuable insights saving time and money.”

Concepts NREC has 5-axis milling centers producing prototype and production hardware such axial and radial impellers, integrally shrouded impellers, turbines, individual airfoils, turbochargers, aero-engine blisks, and more up to 40” (1000mm) under our AS9100D certification and with lights out capabilities.
