TAE has a strong reputation as a specialist manufacturer with particular focus on components requiring the Aluminium Vacuum Brazing process. Aluminium Vacuum Brazing is a leading edge manufacturing process for fusing aluminium components together to result in lightweight, high strength, reliable end products.
We are the only Australian company to have successfully developed the Aluminium Vacuum Brazing technology to date and one of only a small number world-wide able to provide this process.
Aluminium Vacuum Brazing delivers:
While the capability was developed in support of F-35 JointStrike Fighter (JSF) applications, the process has a much wider application for components such as:
and other high-end technologies requiring increased cooling in restricted spaces. This process is not limited to aviation and extends to space based equipment and terrestrial installations.
We can provide a raw material to fully completed component solution. This includes not only the brazing process but also the associated steps such as precision machining, heat treatment, conversion coating, painting, component assembly and any required proof pressure testing and/or flow testing. All can be completed in-house to customer specific requirements.
In addition to manufacturing, we can assist in the design and prototyping of components utilising this process. We also have a range of other specialist aerospace manufacturing capabilities including:
All manufacturing activities are supported by the dedicated Project Management and Engineering team.
