For over 20 years, the machinists at Usinage St-Laurent have been machining thin-walled monolithic structures for aerospace applications.
We machine raw aluminum plates to create satellite system panels. We meticulously remove around 97% of the original material, transforming a 2,000-pound plate into a mere 30 pounds upon completion! This machining job takes several hundred hours to finalize and the resulting single panel is later used in satellite systems. Mistakes are not an option!
Our know-how and the precision of our tools enabled us to machine 3 x 3.3 m (119 x 130'') structures.
