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...


Considerations for Machining Exotics

In manufacturing, the term “exotic” is used to describe materials that display excellent wear characteristics, durability and service life in high heat, extreme cold or corrosive environments.


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

The two-day conference at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) addresses topics and concerns important to manufacturers that serve the aerospace industry. Boeing and Rolls-Royce are the lead sponsors.


Consistency with Indirect Extrusion

A return to basics, paired with extensive research, proved instrumental in the enhancements of this aluminum rod and bar manufacturer’s product line.


Cutting a Micron at a Time

When the task is to remove very small amounts of material, this process may be the answer.


A Systems Approach for Successful Titanium Machining

Coolant delivery, spindle connection and dynamic response all are part of a tooling formula for milling this metal productively.


Targeted Five-Axis Machining

Focusing on a particular part size range allows this shop to use a versatile type of five-axis machine tool. Five-axis machining now makes up 40 percent of the shop’s business.
