imX Exhibit to Detail Aerospace Machining Techniques

Visitors to Mitsui Seiki’s booth at the inaugural imX (interactive manufacturing experience) industry event will take away a greater comprehension of requirements for machining new aerospace engine and structural components, the company says. “There is a tremendous amount of work coming down the pike to the aerospace supply chain, driven by new fuel-efficient jet designs,” says Scott Walker, President of Mitsui Seiki USA, Inc. “The challenge is 95 percent of these high nickel superalloys and hybrid composite material parts cannot be machined with conventional CNC machining centers.

Visitors to Mitsui Seiki’s booth at the inaugural imX (interactive manufacturing experience) industry event will take away a greater comprehension of requirements for machining new aerospace engine and structural components, the company says. “There is a tremendous amount of work coming down the pike to the aerospace supply chain, driven by new fuel-efficient jet designs,” says Scott Walker, President of Mitsui Seiki USA, Inc. “The challenge is 95 percent of these high nickel superalloys and hybrid composite material parts cannot be machined with conventional CNC machining centers. We have been working in conjunction with the major aerospace OEMs for the last several years to develop the manufacturing equipment to process these new parts. At imX we will convey the latest information and technology available to machine these components.”
 
Scheduled for September 12-14 in Las Vegas, imX aims to depart from the traditional tradeshow model and deliver a more interactive educational experience. In keeping with this theme, Mitsui Seiki plans to engage customers and prospects with guest speakers from the aerospace industry, interactive workshops, dynamic audio/visuals and casual conversation. “I sincerely hope that current aerospace suppliers or those who want to explore this soon-to-be-booming market will visit our booth and exchange ideas and information with us,” Mr. Walker says. “The aerospace OEMs are very concerned that there isn’t enough manufacturing capacity to handle all the work that’s coming. Contract shops need the facts. We welcome the opportunity to provide them at imX.”
