For the right parts, this choice might be surprisingly cost-effective. A drum pedal maker controlled cost by starting some machined components as extruded blanks instead of solid blocks.


Applying “Dengeling” to Finish Turbine Blades

This alternative to grinding, polishing and shot peening enables turbine blades to be machined and finished on one five-axis machine in one setup.


Taking Titanium Seriously

Does titanium justify a machine that is engineered for this metal?


More Efficient Turbine Blade Milling

Video shows a multitasking machine milling a turbine blade in a cycle that few machining centers could replicate.


Straight to Sand

Through direct CNC machining of molds and cores, this supplier of cast and machined parts skips the pattern-making step that would otherwise be fundamental to casting. The result is weeks of lead-time savings for complex parts that are needed in a h...
