With over 40 years of experience, we are experts in the highly technical process of aerospace plastic injection molding, with stringent testing and real-time data monitoring throughout production. We are proud to be trusted by aerospace industry leaders, including Boeing and Airbus, to provide aircraft parts and components made of high temperature materials such as PEEK, ULTEM, and Polycarbonate. Our high-quality aerospace plastic injection molding processes ensure products that are compliant with all aerospace industry standards and regulations.
Stability, durability, and high performance are not only expected, but demanded in the highly regulated aerospace industry. The team at PEP works to ensure not only functional aerospace parts design and manufacturing, but safety in passenger and cargo transportation as well. With real-time testing of all process parameters, we are able to effectively troubleshoot difficulties and make essential adaptations during every stage of production, with first article inspection, pressure testing, and leakage testing for valve or assemblies to ensure the highest level of quality control.
