The chemical milling process selectively removes material while maintaining structural
strength where needed. Material weight reductions of 75 percent or more and thickness
reductions down to .010" or less produce super lightweight yet strong parts. Conventional
machining methods render it virtually impossible to lighten complex
metal parts with the close tolerance results of chemical milling.
Ducommun has the ability to chemically mill a wide variety of material
families such as aluminums, titaniums and steels. Whether rolled, cast, extruded
or formed Ducommun can chemical milling features, size parts, remove weight
and/or alpha case.
