Fabrication of an Aluminum Alloy Bracket Assembly for a Military Application

When a customer in the defense industry needed an internal mount for a military vehicle, Dresco Machining & Fabrication was contracted to employ our advanced metal fabrication capabilities. To fabricate this assembly, two types of aluminum alloy were used: 5052-H32 with a thickness of .125" to .250", and 6061-T6 with a thickness/overall diameter of .750". These components were constructed under stringent quality control, with dimensional and visual inspection performed throughout the process. Processes applied for fabrication included Waterjet cutting, hydraulic press bending and forming, CNC turning, and welding.

To finish this assembly, we deburred, painted, and marked each part, adhering to the customer's specifications detailed in 2D CAD drawings throughout the process.

The final product met a host of military and industry standards, including ASTM B209, ASTM B221, and MIL-DTL-5541 Type II Class 1A, among others. Our plant was able to produce 111 of these assemblies in a turnaround time of just 6 to 8 weeks for our client in Auburn, Washington.
