This is another example of how AeroTek continues to expand its capabilities to deliver state-of-the-art services with short lead times, all under one roof. These new approvals allow AeroTek to process shafts, axles, and tubes up to 8 feet long, vertically, while controlling inside and outside plating separately. The large tanks also permit easy handling of many configurations of parts for landing gear, engine, or structural components.
