Industry Buzz: Orbit Expands Chemical Processing Department with Installation of New Etch Line


On 22 March 2017, Orbit Industries, Inc. introduced a new chemical processing line for the etching of aluminum aircraft wheels and other aluminum products. The line is located at the company's headquarters in Middleburg Heights, Ohio. The new line allows for increased inspection capacity in aluminum etching and was installed to respond to increasing customer demand.

Segregating this process from its previous location will also open up additional capacity for materials requiring nital etch, titanium etch, and other chemical processing services. The project was completed in three and a half months from concept to production by the efforts of many staff members and input from one of Orbit's customers, NMG Aerospace, which has been working closely with Orbit for over two decades. The communication Orbit received from them regarding forecasting of future work was instrumental in the planning and design of the new etch line.
