Custom Aerospace Contract Manufacturers
For almost 30 years, Pepin has specialized in the contract manufacturing of precision rotary and flatbed die cutting for products used in the aerospace industry. No matter how harsh the environment is or how long lasting the adhesive needs to be, we’re here to help make sure your aerospace components are manufactured consistently, efficiently and cost effectively.
Pepin’s custom fabrication contract manufacturing services make it easy to keep development and production on track. They include:
- Flatbed die cutting — Specifically designed for cutting thicker materials not suitable for rotary die cutting, Pepin’s 60-ton flatbed press utilizes hydraulics and steel rule tooling for efficient cutting of sheets or rolled products like aerospace gaskets, o-rings, seals and abrasive parts. With a relatively quick setup, this stamping motion machine produces hundreds of thousands of parts per day with superior dimensional tolerance. Its capabilities include handling thicker materials, providing tight tolerances and accommodating both short and long production runs. The efficiency, versatility and dimensional precision make flatbed die cutting a valuable solution for aerospace manufacturing.
- Rotary die cutting — Precision rotary die cutting that utilizes custom cylindrical dies and a rotary press is highly advantageous in aerospace component manufacturing. Our team employs advanced servo-driven rotary presses capable of achieving tolerances as low as +/- .004″. This allows for precise cutting, even with inconsistent registration marks, making it suitable for both small-run prototyping and large-scale production. Our services are compatible with a wide selection of materials — including highly conductive films.
Exact, high quality and cost effective — precision slitting services from Pepin support a variety of different materials including highly conductive ones commonly found in the aerospace industry. Whether it’s lathe slitting, rewinding, perforating, rotary slitting, razor slitting or narrow web slitting, our experts are ready to work with you to create your ideal solution.

What Our Client Have to Say
“Pepin was recommended to us by another manufacturing plant due to their expertise and experience with converting. We brought a complicated problem that many other converters have not been able to figure out and Pepin and their team have invested into this project even without promising results right away and they were able to perform the task. After a few runs, Pepin’s team spent ample hours collaborating and brainstorming some ideas and came up with a solution. SOSCO is so thankful for the relationship we have built with Pepin and continue to build. I also think the F-35 Fighter Jet team appreciates them as well!”
