Perfect tolerance, every time
Manufacturing the complex structural assemblies required for fixed wing aircraft and helicopters for commercial and defense markets demands absolute precision and the ability to meet rigorous tolerances every time. It requires efficient processes with next-to-no waste and reliable performance for the manufacturer of fuselages, wings, empennages, nacelles, helicopter cabins and other components. Partner with us for the best technology available for manufacturing the latest in aero structure components.
Milling & Machining
Stiles single- and dual-zone CNC equipment can exceed your demands in flat panel and 3D milling and machining. High-level accuracy can be achieved with automated feedback loops and error compensation. Our industry-leading solutions have three-, four- or five-axis head configurations for milling mechanical and visual plastics, fiberglass, nonferrous metals, composites and other advanced materials. We offer multiple milling and sawing, drilling or water jet processes, and material holding options including mechanical clamping, roller or vacuum holding. Stiles machines provide flexibility, durability to increase your capabilities in high production manufacturing.
Cutting & Sawing
Our proven line of saws cut all types of materials with dependability, precision and accuracy. Whether you’re working with nonferrous metals, plastics or advanced materials and composites, our wide range of panel-sizing equipment is capable of cutting to variable sizes at near-finish dimensions, reducing waste and saving material cost across your entire portfolio. Work with Stiles for high-quality, chip-free cuts with exceptionally clean, smooth edges.
Stiles’ finishing technologies translate into significant savings in operating costs by reducing waste, saving time on cleaning and maintenance, and improving uptime on your line. We offer the most comprehensive line of finishing equipment from spray machines, to vacuum coating, roll coating, and robotic processes to provide consistent finishes for profile, flat, 3D and non-rigid parts. Our equipment will apply, dry and clean surface finishes for any color, clarity and sheen on a full range of substrates from plastics and wood, to solid surfaces and metals. Ask us how we can help you achieve top-quality finishes on top quality products for bottom-line savings.
We understand that material handling is a critical element for efficient manufacturing. We offer material handling options that range from basic, entry-level handling to completely automated and integrated systems—everything from return conveyers or vacuum and scissor lifts to full robotics and with lights-out capabilities. No matter the material, we have the equipment to turn it, flip it, move it, stack it and store it. Let us design a material handling system that will reduce your labor and damage while putting the right material in the right place for faster production.
Dust Extraction & Collection
Dust collection is critical to reducing costs and improving performance. It increases machine life and production efficiencies, avoids slowdowns and promotes healthy working conditions. Our dust collection equipment incorporates numerous safety designs and features to help reduce the potential risks of explosions, while protecting your employees—and your investment—and aligning with OSHA and NFPA guidelines. Consult with us to design a custom dust collection system that meets your needs.
