The CGV-900 offers built-in compliance, allowing the unit to compensate for irregularities in part surfaces and maintain contact with a workpiece. The compliance force is adjustable, so users can fine-tune finishing processes in real time.

Precision Castparts Buys Into Aerospace, Again

March 22, 2014
Resumes acquisition program Large, complex parts; hard metal machining Airbus 350 supply program

Precision Castparts Corporation is back in the acquisition mode with an agreement to buy an aerospace machining specialist, Aerospace Dynamics International, for $625 million.

"ADI is an acquisition we have pursued for several years," stated PCP chairman and CEO Mark Donegan. "They have invested in world-class facilities and developed large part capabilities that will expand our aerostructures product offering and role on next-generation aircraft.

Portland-based PCC produces complex metal components for aerospace and energy markets, with three divisions that focus on investment castings, forgings, and fasteners and airframes. From 2010 through 2013, the company conducted a series of acquisitions that expanded its position in the aerospace materials and components supply chain — capped by its $2.9-billion purchase of the integrated titanium metal producer, Timet.

Among its various manufactured products, PCP produces complex investment castings for aircraft engines, industrial gas turbines, and airframes, and reportedly produces the world's largest-diameter investment cast components. Large-scale castings are produced in nickel-based super alloy, titanium, and stainless steel, and medium-sized and smaller castings (e.g., stationary vanes, rotating blades) are produced in aluminum alloys for aerospace and other applications.

ADI will finish machine castings and forgings produced by PCP’s other holdings
