Custom Machined Parts for Complex Aerospace and Military Applications

CNC Machined Mortar Assemblies for Aircraft Ejection Systems

APC’s full-service CNC machining department is a preferred manufacturer for mortar assemblies used in military aircraft ejection systems.

These complex assemblies are fabricated from an 18” long aluminum tubing with custom machined 1.75 inch aluminum rods. Every precision component is cut to length, gun drilled, and turned on a CNC lathe. The final assemblies also require CNC milled caps and tube ends produced with extremely tight tolerances. Finally, every assembly is finished with hard anodizing to increase resistance to wear, heat, and corrosion.

After the fabrication process, we assemble each device with specialized adhesives, O-rings, and sealant – along with all of the critical mortar components. This is where APC’s expertise in combining numerous materials and complex assemblies is crucial.  After all, these mortar assemblies are one of the critical components that comprise the ACES II ejection seat system – mounted to sides of pilot seats across the globe. Packed with explosive mortar, the device ejects a paradrogue which stabilizes the pilot’s seat in the case of an emergency ejection before the main parachute deploys.
