Some of the biggest names in the aircraft and aviation industries depend on Globe Engineering to make the assemblies and aircraft parts they need. Since 1946, we've established a reputation as a company that finds solutions when others say it's not possible.

We are dedicated to quality at every stage of the process, and offer quick turnaround to meet the fast-paced demands of our customers. Globe Engineering builds a wide range of aircraft parts that excel in quality, precision, and performance.

Required tooling is built in-house for form, trim, assembly and check fixtures, while utilizing customer-furnished CATIA, IGES, and engineering data. Our heat treat, non-destructive testing and weld processes are NADCAP-certified.

We bend 1/8” to 8” diameter tubes in a variety of alloys, including aluminum, inconel, stainless and titanium.

We also hot-form bend tubes up to 6” diameter and manufacture double-wall fuel tubes.

Our state-of-the-art AICON TubeInspect Optical Measuring Units rapidly scan and verify bend angles and overall tube configuration.

We bend tubes for aircraft and aerospace fuel lines and hydraulic systems, as well as for anti-icing and bleed air assemblies.

Full in-house machining capability, including multiple 5-Axis CNC machines and CNC Turning Centers with live machining.

Complex assemblies
In our 20,000 square foot Assembly area, we build complex aircraft and aerospace assemblies, including desktop and larger assemblies.

We work with aluminum, stainless steel, inconel and titanium, as well as non-metallic materials, including duct insulation, and silicone and rubber seals.

Fasteners
Rivets: button, flush, double-flush and blind. We also work with Hy-locks, clinch nuts and ground studs.

Adhesive Bonding
We use customer-approved products from 3M, Bostik, Dow Corning and PR DeSoto.

Welded Assemblies
We perform manual and automatic GTAW and RSEW welding of complex aircraft assemblies in our NADCAP-certified facility, along with track, seam, spot and automatic orbital welding, and a Class A Clean Room.

Globe Engineering’s NADCAP-certified welding capabilities include manual and automatic GTAW and RSEW welding of complex aircraft assemblies, a Class A Clean Room, plus track, seam, spot and automatic orbital welding.

In 1964, Globe bought the very first Cincinnati Deep-Draw Hydroform Machine that was ever built.

Since then, we’ve increased our number of Deep Draw Hydroform machines to seven, from 12” to 32” blank diameter capacity.

The Deep-Draw Hydroform process is superior to other forming methods for many reasons: faster cycle times, less expensive tooling, and consistent production. The first part in a production lot is identical to the final part because there’s no swelling of the die. Urethane blanks eliminate marring of metal part surface, reduce thin-out, allow tighter radii and the creation of more complex shapes.

Globe performs hydro-spinning of propeller spinners, cones and cylindrical shapes from aluminum and stainless steel.

Capabilities

Globe is NADCAP-approved to heat treat aluminum, stainless steel, precipitation-hardening steel, inconel, titanium and other exotic metals. We also age-harden aluminum and PH steels.
