Aluminum Machining for Aerospace on the a61nx-5E
Create complex aluminum aerospace parts in less time with less floor space. Watch the demo video to see the a61nx-5E create
a wing leading edge rib part in 8.6 minutes. Plus, see the pallet-change system in action.
Speed, Flexibility and Precision
Investments made by Exacta Aerospace in Makino technology have enabled the company to quickly produce complete ship sets of aerospace parts.
What's HOT in Titanium Machining
Heat generation is the largest contributor to short tool life in titanium machining. See Makino present scientific research and a discussion about the formation of heat in titanium milling in this webinar.
New Opportunities for Patriot Machine
Bob Burns discusses the new capabilities and efficiencies gained from investments in Makino titanium machining centers with ADVANTiGE technologies.
Aerospace Engine Manufacturing: Blades and Vanes
Efforts by aircraft manufacturers to reduce engine weight have led to blade and vane designs featuring large quantities of cooling holes and complex diffuser shapes. In meeting these needs, Makino designed a new EDM hole drilling solution for fast production of shaped holes, back-striking prevention, and maintaining metallurgical quality, unattended operations and production monitoring.
Aerospace Engine Manufacturing: Grinding
Today's capital equipment must be more flexible and capable than ever, minimizing non-cut time, setup time and tool-changing time throughout every process, including grinding. This is why Makino developed a 5-axis machining solution that combines grinding, drilling, boring and milling operations into one platform, reducing setups and cycle times for a competitive edge.
Aerospace Structural Manufacturing: Aluminum
With aircraft production soaring, speed and quality in the production of aluminum monolithic structural components matters more than ever. Makino meets these needs with a variety of high-speed, 4- and 5-axis machining solutions that offer a "right-sized" approach to competitively manufacture aluminum structural components of all sizes.
Aerospace Structural Manufacturing: Titanium
The increasing use of titanium in modern aircraft structural components magnifies the need for advanced technologies and process efficiencies in the machining of titanium. At Makino's Titanium Research and Development Center, engineers are developing productive and profitable solutions that overcome limited metal-removal rates and rapid tool wear with four times the productivity and up to nine times the tool life of conventional machining processes.
