01 Design

Using the latest in 3D design software, our engineers are able to quickly progress from a simple sketch to detailed 3D assemblies and drawings. We utilize CATIA V5 and SolidWorks to produce conceptual layouts, engineering drawings and numerical control definition. In most cases, we can import our customers existing design definition into our software and iterate the design in order to generate a finished product.

06 Testing

Most structures require proof testing to validate the design and analysis portion of a project. Our engineering staff can design test fixtures that will simulate real world operation prior to flight. Structural proof testing prior to use is a valuable exercise for validating the design but also provides an additional layer of safety prior to use. Our test fixtures and instrumentation allow us to measure force, str…

09 Reverse Engineering

Mace Aviation excels at reverse engineering parts or products that already exist but are lacking complete engineering definition. Whether the part is a small fairing or a complete aircraft, we can reverse engineer it. Depending on the level of accuracy required, tools that range from scales and micrometers to a laser interferometer can be used to extract geometry. Extracted geometry is imported into CATIA and resu…
