Doosan Makes a Power Play

The South Korean builder is directing its focus toward rigid machine platforms capable of heavy cuts in tough materials.


Beyond Milling or Grinding

Ultrasonic machining opens new possibilities for NASA engineers using previously unmachinable materials.


Design the Parts Around the Process

To guarantee that components for a new helicopter could be readily produced, the company looked at the capabilities of available machine tools in the market first, and then finalized the design of the components accordingly. It created a Precision C...


How Cameras Improve Capacity

Web cameras provide an inexpensive way to bring remote processes together, and to improve timing and confidence in unattended machining.


Easily Upgrade Machines with Hexapods

If you are like me, you’ve never heard of a hexapod until recently (or now), but I put two and two together to figure out that it was a machining apparatus with six legs.


One Way to Machine Long Titanium Parts

This horizontal machining center design not only addresses the need for larger machining capacity for long aerospace components, but it also offers impressive material removal rates for tough titanium alloys.


Composites Machining for the F-35

Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some ...


Find Your Speed Outside of Machining

This short-lead-time mold shop achieves its most significant time savings by looking outside the machining cycle. However, one of those elements outside the cycle—palletized setup—ultimately led to cycle time savings via five-axis machining.


Taking on Titanium

The challenge for the aerospace machine shop is to produce titanium parts productively and profitably. The challenge for the machine tool builder is to help such shops meet this challenge.


Five-Axis Volumetric Error Compensation for Large Machine Tools

System simultaneously corrects tool position in multiple axes to tighten machining accuracies on large machines that cut complex shapes.
