Aerospace Material Standards and Precision Castings


Aerospace Material Standards (AMS) are a set of rigorous requirements that have been established to ensure that materials, components and devices meet the special design and safety needs of the aerospace and aircraft industries. Thermal, optical, mechanical, chemical and electrical properties are covered by these standards. It is critical that foundries producing precision cast parts for these applications comply with AMS. This takes a thorough understanding of and commitment to AMS, a high level of foundry expertise and the appropriate casting equipment and testing instruments.
