Center of Excellence – Missiles and Rockets

The main difference between missiles and rockets is that missiles have a guidance system to assist them in meeting their designated target. Rockets, however, do not have a guidance system and are simply launched in the direction of the primary target.

PV’s center of excellence in CNC machining is machining critical parts for missiles and rockets. PV’s sophisticated use of CNC Milling, CNC Lathe, and Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM)  delivers machined parts within the tightest tolerances demanded whether it be for a missile or rocket.  Of the hundreds of CNC machined parts that go into making a missile or rocket, PV is consistently called upon by leading defense contractors to manufacture the following parts:

◎ Canard
◎ Chassis
◎ Machined Enclosure Cover
◎ Spacer Assembly
◎ Ring Spacer
◎ Cross Shaft
