Reverse Engineering a 40-year-old Aircraft Part
Available from Ray Products, Inc.
An aircraft parts supplier came to us with a unique challenge. They were being asked to develop a replacement for a part that was last manufactured in 1972. The original molds for the part had long since been destroyed. All we had to work with was a sample part and a full-size drawing from 1972.
To create an exact replacement part, we used a combination of our history with traditional thermoforming practices and some cutting-edge 3D technology.
