Attention to detail cannot be spared when it comes to Aerospace CNC Machining.
Here at P4Swiss/Lindel CNC Machining, the precise parts that we manufacture for the aerospace industry are produced with accuracy.
Aerospace CNC Machining
P4Swiss/Lindel CNC Machining is the most trusted manufacturer for quality and accuracy in aerospace parts. Our machine shop can efficiently meet any requirements and exceed all expectations in the aerospace industry, by producing precise and geometrically-customized components.

- CNC turning and live tooling are, both, available for aerospace parts
CNC Machined Parts Soaring Through The Universe
A team of scientists and engineers, at the University of Arizona, had reached out to us with confidence that we would efficiently meet their expectations. With that being said, we partnered with NASA and the University of Arizona for the successful completion of an exciting aerospace project.
Soaring through the solar system are our precise aeronautical parts that our facility manufactured, here in Tucson, Arizona. This mission through space is being led by the University of Arizona.
The CNC machined component that we fabricated is referred to as the OSIRIS – REx spacecraft. This machined part is just a piece of an entire camera array. The scientists and engineers at the University of Arizona are the experts who designed the aeronautical wonder-camera. This camera is currently traveling faster than 800 miles per hour through the universe. As a result, quality, exceptional detail, high accuracy and precision was certainly necessary in the manufacturing process.
“Working with scientists and engineers at the University of Arizona is always an exhilarating experience”, said Tom Ferrara, General Manager of P4Swiss/Lindel CNC Machining. “Meeting their design and engineering specifications, as well as helping with the production of the OSIRIS – REx spacecraft, took real team effort”.
An Asteroid Is Documented
One of the asteroids that is currently in our solar system is known as 101955 Bennu. The OSIRIS – REx spacecraft has just completed documenting this specific asteroid in space.
101955 Bennu is an ancient relic that has been in our solar system for 4.5 billion years. Around one-third of a mile wide at the asteroid’s equator, Bennu is considered to be microscale in comparison to the universe’s planets.
The camera was launched into space in the year 2016, in order to effectively analyze and document the asteroid. The aeronautical wonder-camera has also recorded astrological data and images along the way. The documentation of this asteroid began farther than one million miles off into space. Thus, every component of the camera required high accuracy and exact precision to ensure that the camera would successfully complete the mission.
This highly efficient camera precisely captured images as close as ten feet from the volatile surface of Bennu. Prior to the spacecraft traveling to the asteroid, scientists analyzed Bennu’s surface by radar observations here on Earth. With the help of the OSIRIS – REx spacecraft, through images taken in close range, scientists have now discovered that 101955 Bennu has a surface that is much more rough than previously thought to be.
The Spacecraft’s Asteroid Samples
The OSIRIS – REx spacecraft is the first ever United States space mission to actually bring asteroid samples back to Earth. This spacecraft has the ability to precisely remove samples from the volatile surface of an asteroid. It successfully obtained asteroid samples back in October of 2020.
As of September 24, 2023, another asteroid sample officially returned to Earth – a sample from the asteroid 101955 Bennu. Scientists have been eager to study the asteroid’s samples. They hope the pristine samples that the spacecraft dropped off, into the Utah desert, offers clues to whether asteroids colliding with Earth billions of years ago brought water and other key ingredients for life.
The Spacecraft Will Tour An Additional Asteroid
The spacecraft will now continue on for an additional mission to study another asteroid. This asteroid is referred to as Apophis.
The new mission, led by the University of Arizona for the second time, is going to receive a new name. The new mission is known as the OSIRIS – APEX. OSIRIS – APEX is shortened for OSIRIS – Apophis Explorer. This spacecraft’s mission will last for 18 months.
“When we think about the impact our Tucson CNC machining shop has made out there, it is almost overwhelming”, said Tom Ferrara. “Our precision CNC capabilities have revealed the most inspirational opportunities and we are thrilled to see where we will be going next”.
Quality Aerospace CNC Manufacturing
From our Tucson, Arizona CNC machine shop to the outer reaches of space, CNC manufacturing for the aerospace industry – at P4Swiss/Lindel – helps and supports aeronautical research and scientific study.
Our quality team of experts, along with the scientists and engineers at the University of Arizona, can pride oneself in the equipment and specialty of the CNC machined parts that have traveled millions of miles through the solar system – once the OSIRIS – REx spacecraft returns to Earth from its mission.
