Vertical Gantry Mill for Large, Nonferrous Components
Fives Cincinnati’s modular Precision Mill/Trim (PMT) five-axis gantry machine tool is designed for high-speed multiprocessing of large nonferrous components such as composite structures, aluminum skins, molds and patterns.
Vertical Turning Center Adds Gear-Cutting Capability
Mag’s VTC 2500H vertical turning center combines gear hobbing and milling capabilities with its range of turning, milling, drilling, threading and contouring functions for workpieces ranging to 2,700 mm in diameter.
Machining Long, Complex Parts
MAG Cincinnati’s E Mill is designed for machining long, small-cross-section parts used in aerospace, construction, shipbuilding and wind power applications. It is useful for titanium, aluminum and composite work on stringers, spars, beams and similar parts, the company says. The machine performs contour machining, routing, drilling and tapping to produce finished, complex, 3D-geometry parts as long as 40 ft.
HMC With 15,000-rpm Spindle
The NBH 5+ Speed HMC is designed as a manufacturing solution for large aluminum parts or tombstones in automotive, electronic and general industrial applications, combining a generous work envelope with a 15,000-rpm motorized spindle, 295-ft/min (90 m/min) linear feeds and an 80-rpm B axis. The machine's 19.7" (500
The In-Cycle Enabler
To achieve 144 hours per week of in-cycle time on its machining centers, this plant relies on software that offers a clear, colorful, real-time view of where the time losses are occurring.
A Critical Machine That Needs Moving Requires More Than Heavy Lifting
When your product is vital to the security and defense of America, there is simply no room for loss of critical capacity in the manufacturing process. Manufacturing engineers at this company were keenly aware of this fact when they were recently faced with consolidating and relocating portions of the arsenal's metalworking operations.
