Specialist Aerospace

Chances are, if you fly, an ENL component is part of that aircraft. Our blue-chip aerospace customers choose ENL because we consistently add value.

Parts used within aerostructures need to be both strong and light. As a result, the aerospace industry uses many specialised plastic materials in production.

Due to some of the extreme operating conditions, parts must be designed and manufactured to precise specification; the smallest error could lead to failure of the finished product.

Supported by the aerospace As9100 quality standard, ENL have perfected over 50 years the manufacturing processes required to meet these exacting requirements. And as result, ENL is a partner of choice to some of the world’s most respected aerospace brands.

ENL is proud to be associated with a wide variety of aircraft programs and manufacturers, such as the A300, A319, A320, A321, A330, A340, A350, A380, A400M programs Boeing 737, 747, 757 programs, Concorde, Eurocopter, Bombardier and the Joint Strike Fighter program.

Our service

Our service covers the complete design for manufacture process. Using modern software tools such as SolidWorks and CATIA, we optimise parts and tools to meet the exacting precision required for aerospace.

We have strong experience in manufacturing aerospace grade parts from high performance polymers such as Ultem, PEEK and Torlon. This capability is matched with in-house tool manufacturing that ensures tools are precisely matched to part design and material to maintain the highest level of precision.

ENL can mould from 10 – 830 tonnes capacity and up to a 4000 grams shot. With both horizontal and vertical split-feed or conventional, we have the capacity to moold and overmould a huge range of aerospace parts. Post-operations such as CNC machining, ultrasonic welding, printing and kitting are managed completely in-house, therefore ensuring a consistently high-level of quality.
