A New Era of Cold Expansion for Aircraft Production and Repair
Cold Expansion of fastener holes has been a staple of aircraft life extension programs for more than 50 years. Not much has changed in cold expansion processes, tooling or applications for decades, until now. Enter PartWorks, breathing new life, new thinking, new designs and new technology into the world of cold expansion. PartWorks has assembled a team of some of the world’s most knowledgeable experts in the fields of cold expansion, airframe design, component design, qualification as well as structural repair and fatigue enhancement to bring the technology to a wider variety of aircraft repair and assembly problems.
Whether you’re involved in repair or new production of military or commercial aircraft, PartWorks’ patent-pending innovations in ultra thin-walled bushings and nutplates, handheld smart tools, and in situ life extension validation are designed to offer increased fleet readiness, reduced corrosion repair costs and data for validated life extension.
Explore the possibilities
Learn about Cold Expansion
Increase fleet readiness
Shortened corrosion hole repair time and 10x life extension dramatically improve aircraft availability with PartWorks patent-pending solutions including ultra thin-walled bushings and bushed rivetless nutplates.
Reduce corrosion repair costs
Fleets experience a transformative reduction in corrosion repair costs. PartWorks’ patent-pending installation and process validation tooling standardize the labor component and inform the operator when the work is done correctly.
Validate life extension credit
Fleets can validate the cold expansion of the parent structure in situ. PartWorks’ patent-pending system and integrated digital image correlation deliver process validation and justify life extension credit.
