Hold Down Knob For Airplane

Contracted by an aerospace industry leader, Hinz Company constructed a multi-axis turned hold-down knob used for commerical airline applications. Produced  from stainless steel material, this part was manufactured using advanced CNC multi-axis turning equipment, capable of holding (±) .001 of an inch precision tolerance. Based off a customer supplied print,  Hinz manufactured the demanding features of the hold-down knob including kidney shaped pockets and offset drilled and tapped holes.

The hold-down knob has a decorative and functional knurl located on the outside diameter and an ultra smooth finish is required over the nickel plated surface. Performing a series of dimensional checks, we ensured that the part met exact customer and FAA specifications.

Providing only the most reliable, cost effective machining services, Hinz Company was able to successfully manufacture this multi-axis turned hold-down knob for the aerospace industry, meeting our client's high expectations for quality.
