Tooling Design

MERC’s engineers can support the need for new tooling, whether for bonded panels or welded assemblies. 

MERC has designed tools for various items in the past, and can fabricate them in-house or by one of our suppliers.

In one project, MERC developed bond fixture tooling for outer mold line skins of the A-10 Nacalles.  For the EC-130J, MERC developed a tool and created prototype parts for a replacement vertical trailing wire antenna light lens cover. 

MERC also created tooling to allow for competitive procurement of the C-130 air intake scoops.
