Aluminum Black Box Housing for Aviation

Aluminum Black Box Housing

Stanron Steel manufactures the black box housing used in the aviation industry. Composed of 6061 aluminum alloy and delivered to a customer in Penang, Malaysia, this part conforms to the highest customer specifications. The finished product features dimensions of 3.10" in width, 3.95" in length and 0.73" in depth, with an estimated part weight of 3 oz., all to tolerances of 0.002"/-0.001". Equipment such as a CNC turret punch, hydraulic press brake, and hardware insertion machines are all used during the primary operations. The part is then Aluminum Dip Brazed in 2000 degrees molten salt allowing 100% penetration of all surfaces by capillary action for high vibration applications. After vibratory milling the part is finished with bright tin dip per Mil-T-10727 Type 1. It is inspected throughout the entire process using ISO 9001:2008 worldwide standards.
