Profiler Expected to Exceed 100 Cubic Inches per Minute in Titanium
Five-axis, five-spindle machine aims at reduced cost per piece for production of large aircraft components.
Representatives of Fives Cincinnati say the company’s new five-axis, five-spindle “super profiler” is “the stiffest five-axis profiler we’ve ever seen in action.” Fives expects it to exceed 100 cubic inches per minute of metal removal in machining titanium aircraft components, once it is married to its dedicated foundation and high-pressure coolant system at the customer’s site.
“The industry needs to set new standards for producing titanium parts at the lowest cost per piece,” says Chip Storie, Fives Cincinnati executive VP. Features contributing to the stiffness and the resulting efficiency of this machine include a frame designed for dynamic stiffness, including a massive cross rail, as well as a robust spindle design.
