BAE Systems JSF F35 Titanium Machining Facility

This facility supports machining of major titanium components for the new F35 Joint Strike Fighter Jets using a state of the art CNC machine.

Lucid were involved from initial design development through to construction, commissioning, handover and takeover.

The facility was designed to accommodate the potential for future increases to production capability. This has enabled simple connection of additional capacity without significant abortive works or production downtime.

A major requirement of the project was accommodating the state of the art CNC machine to be imported, via 28 separate shipping containers, and assembled in-situ. Extensive consultation and coordination enabled the modular construction and assembly of the machine.
