Frequently Asked Questions
At Integrated Components we use a wide variety of machining technologies. We are a machine shop with state-of-the-art CNC turning and CNC milling machines in house, as well as a hone, thread rolling and an abundance of gear equipment. For more than 15 years, we’ve provided our customers with high-quality parts, ranging in size from small to medium. We can manufacture a block of up to 50x20x20 inches, and up to 10 inches diameter. Our “typical” lot sizes range from 10 to 1,000 pieces.
Normal lead time for gear work services is approximately three weeks and can be influenced by a number of factors, including the number of surfaces being cut and whether timing and tooth removal are involved.
For jobs including heat treat, processing and machining, lead time usually starts at about 10 weeks.
Assemblies can sometimes take 16 weeks to complete, depending on a number of components. If you’ve got a question about the lead time for your order, contact us!
We are a machine shop located in the Air Capital of the world, so it makes sense that a large portion of our manufacturing work is in the aircraft industry. We work with both OEM companies and sub-tier OEM companies. We also work with companies in the agriculture, automotive, and amusement ride industries.
We do most of our work with carbon alloys, stainless steel, brass, plastics, and aluminum. We have spent years developing machining techniques for hardened steels and special materials such as tungsten, Inconel, and others.
While Integrated Components does not offer finishing services in-house, we have a wide supply-base we can use to finish process parts. We can also package parts for shipment, and we use our supply chain logistics or our customer’s choice to ship.
We are AS9100 Rev C certified, and Rev D certification will begin in 2018. We offer a robust quality management system, and have had several consecutive AS9100 audits with no findings. Integrated Components prides itself on its QMS.
We put teeth on gears ranging from 5/16 inch up to 10 inches in diameter.
Our expertise spans an abundance of gear types, including spur gears, serrations and involute splines, as well as internal and external gears.
Essentially any type of material found on an aircraft. That includes aluminum, nylatron, hardened stainless steel, and titanium, which are the cases we see the most.
Thread rolling is faster and more cost-effective than other methods. It also provides a more uniform thread across the entire lot of parts.
Integrated Components can thread roll parts up to two inches in diameter.
