advanced piccolo tube forming techniques

This anti-ice piccolo tube for the Nimrod MRA4 is manufactured to a tolerance of 50 thousanths of an inch over its diameter.

It is a further example of the skills of our staff who hand form the different complex profiles for each of the aircraft’s engine intakes. NADCAP approved welding is carried out on the titanium assembly.
