With a team of highly skilled Welders & Fabricators to support the highly Experienced Engineering Team, we are able to work closely with our Customers and supply chain to engineer, manufacture, and provide effective solutions to achieve their requirements.

Assemblies & Testing

Nasmyth consistently look to provide the highest value-added service for our customers by taking on board any additional activities such as higher level aerostructure, welded, electrical and mechanical assemblies.

Our capabilities include full wet assembly of aerostructure components, including, installation of captive nuts using riveting and bonding techniques, and heat and shrink installation of high-performance bushes and proof load testing, all approved to our many customer accreditations.

Welded assemblies are supported by our fully coded/approved welding approvals. Nasmyth can supply diverse complex components such as fuel pipes, ground support equipment and satellite drill fixtures through to military vehicle and lightweight rotary aircraft products. All parts are tested using our in house non-destructive testing inspection techniques, to assure quality and performance in service.

Nasmyth Group has extensive electro-mechanical assembly and testing capabilities that have been used to design and manufacture fully featured flight simulator seat installations and flat panel trainer seat systems. We also offer the repair and overhaul of control units including flight column and throttle box assemblies. These involve the manufacture and assembly of complex mechanical systems and includes the procurement and fitting of the additional electrical system components. These are supplied fully tested and can be delivered onsite where the installation and certification can be completed.

The above assembly and testing disciplines, and our complementary manufacturing and treatment capabilities mean that Nasmyth can provide our customers with a real “Full Turnkey Solution” for the manufacture of simple to complex assembled products.

Best Value Supply Chain

Nasmyth Group has extensive expertise providing best cost solutions through the development of our extended global value supply chain. We are a global sourcing company maintaining a strong partnership with reliable suppliers across India and the Philippines.
