Brand-New from 1972: Reverse Engineering the Past

Reverse Engineering

Forty-two years ago, flying the friendly skies was a very different experience from what it is today. So you might be surprised to learn that there’s still demand for an aircraft part that was last manufactured in 1972.

This creates a challenge. How do you recreate a part that hasn’t come off a production line in over 40 years? The short answer is, you call Ray Products.

That’s more or less what happened when an aircraft parts manufacturer came to us with a sample part and a full-size drawing from the part’s last production run in 1972. They needed to create more parts, and they needed the replacements to match the original exactly.

We put our engineering team to work, and used a combination of cutting-edge 3D technology and 60+ years of industry experience to create a cost-effective replacement that matches the original part millimeter for millimeter.
