PRODUCTS & SERVICES

Over the last 20 years, Primus Aerospace, a machine shop in Colorado, has grown to become an industry leader in the high precision machining, finishing and assembly of metals and plastics which achieve the closest tolerances in the most complex products used throughout the aerospace, and defense industries.

Primus strives to maintain operational capacity at 80% of total availability which ensures capacity for our customers with circumstances requiring either expedited production or unpredictable demands.

Primus manufactures in both high production environments as well as prototype and low volume components for our customers. Our market focus is primarily on high-complexity, high-precision designs.  Through the sophistication of our Global Shop Solutions ERP/MRP system, we download, schedule and manage demands up to 5 years in advance. This insures on-time delivery and adequate capacity planning for our customers with long term agreements (LTA), and also provides the flexibility to modify deliveries as needed during the short term.  The ERP/MRP system also helps support our initiative for a lean manufacturing environment to reduce WIP and inventory goods.

In addition to traditional 3-axis and 4-axis machining requirements, Primus Aerospace specializes in the following unique capabilities:

  •  5-axis machining – .060” to 23” in rotation
  •  Complex Milling – .060” to 84.0” in length
  •  Complex Turning – .060” to 22.0” in diameter
  •  Thin Walled Machining – .010” wall thickness achieved on cylindrical housings, deep pocket milling and micro-tubing
  •  Micro-tube bending
  •  Gear Racks and Gear Pinions – machining of both linear and radial gears
  •  Castings & Forgings – machining of aluminum, steel and titanium
  •  Exotic materials – Titanium, Inconel, Kovar, Tantalum, Hastelloy, K-Monel
  •  Hard Turning and Milling – up to 70 Rockwell C
  •  Inventory stocking arrangements for long-term contracts, including Vendor Managed Inventory, Consignment Inventory, KanBan Systems and Safety Stock
