2017 was a year of significant investment and growth at Volo Aero MRO with the addition of in-house capabilities for Jig Bore, liquid nitrogen and the upgrading of our surface grinder and blending/deburring department . In addition we added over 30 new repair part numbers to our T56 / RR501 repair capability. Extending the work we do for this platform as a result of customer demand.
2018 looks like being a very busy year with the addition of an ERP system as well as a planned upgrade in our grindng size capabilities.
As part of continuous improvement program and focus on the customer, we have completed additional training on the Coordinate Measurement Machine. We are very pleased with the improvements in measurement accuracy and the speed of results from having this capability in house.
An additional benefit of bring this capability in house has been the ability to provide an opportunity for our intern to transition into a full time position as an in-process inspector.
