Aerospace Manufacturing Conference Returns to IMTS
TRAM 2014 will include two days of presentations on ideas and technologies affecting aircraft manufacturing. Here, speakers from Boeing and Airbus offer a preview.
Eliminating Tool Pullout in Titanium Milling
Toolholder employs a secondary locking system to counter the high axial cutting forces encountered during the development of a tool for high-metal-removal-rate milling of titanium.
Presetting Becomes Prevalent
Next Intent implemented presetting and shrink-fit toolholding when it bought a five-axis machining center, but it has since seen these resources deliver value to machining centers throughout the shop.
How Metallurgical Structure Affects the Machinability of Aluminum
Advancements in grain structure consistency and mechanical properties help to make this extremely machinable metal suitable for an ever growing range of applications.
Setting the Stage for Sizeable Composites Work
By adding a five-axis waterjet/milling machine, its biggest autoclave and a more expansive lay-up room, Royal Engineered Composites is positioning itself to win larger-scale aerospace work it sees on the horizon.
An Electrochemical Option for Blisks, Blades
This machining platform offers the non-contact electrochemical/precision electrochemical processes for five-axis milling of turbine engine blades and blisks.
10 Tips for Titanium
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
Why Not Start With Waterjet?
In titanium, significant savings and process efficiency can result from the simple fact that abrasive waterjet cutting leaves the remaining stock intact.
Collaborating for Competitiveness
These seven aerospace shops prove that blurring the line between competitor and collaborator can benefit all involved—if it’s done right.
Tool Management Drives Process Standardization
From incoming order to final delivery, this aerospace component manufacturer strives to eliminate process variables. Airtight control of cutting tool inventory is critical to that effort.
