Aerospace and Military

CDT is a custom manufacturer of high-precision grinding tools for the top aircraft turbine manufacturers in the U.S.  This includes precision electroplated form wheels and form mandrels for grinding turbine blades and other various engine parts.  CBN grinding technology can be used for both the manufacturing of aircraft engine components and land-based turbine engine components. Efficient manufacturing needs shorter production runs and longer cycle times, and electroplated CBN wheels  are the preferred choice for high precision form grinding applications of this nature.

Here at CDT, we can help optimize of all your military or commercial aerospace applications  in regards to turbine engine tooling and grinding solutions. As an industry leader in the manufacturing of diamond grinding tools for both air frame and aerostructure components, CDT is ready to tackle even your most challenging manufacturing needs.
