“Right-Sized” Machine for Structural Aerospace Parts

This five-axis machine offers a compact footprint and atypical automated pallet changing system for small, yet challenging aerospace structural components.


Composites Technology at F-35 Suppliers Conference

A recent conference highlighted composites milling equipment as well as a new seven-axis fiber-placement machine specifically designed for the tricky material used to create critical F-35 components.


Adapting to Aerospace Change

The changing demands of aerospace companies have prompted machine shops such as this one to evolve their processes and equipment to become more competitive.


Savings from Sustainability

A project aimed at energy-efficient machining delivered production efficiencies, too.


Consistency Is Key to Titanium

An important part of this shop’s successful approach to titanium machining is a toolpath strategy that keeps the load on the cutter constant. Another important element is the way this shop captures and reapplies what it learns about how effective it...


Lean from the Beginning

How would you design a new plant if you could begin today? Rolls-Royce Crosspointe is a major manufacturing site that was planned from the outset with the expectation that continuous improvement would always be part of its culture.


The Future of Manufacturing

According to engineers with GE Aviation, the challenges of additive metal manufacturing—serious as they are—are small compared to the promise that this technology holds. How else can you make a plane engine 1,000 pounds lighter?


TRAM3 Conference Focuses on Aerospace Manufacturing
