Aerospace Top Conference Postponed Due to Coronavirus
The Aerospace Top Conference, an MMS Mexico Live! event, which was scheduled for the first week of June, has been postponed due to the global health situation caused by the coronavirus. The new dates are November 23-24, 2020.
Aware of the situation that the international community is experiencing due to the coronavirus and government measures restricting movement, travel and mass gatherings, organizer Gardner Business Media decided to postpone the conference while maintaining the same venue: the Four Seasons hotel in Mexico City.
“Aerospace manufacturing has been the fastest growing sector in Mexico. It is growing at a minimum 10% per year for the last 10 years. Although the global pandemic has affected our lives, Gardner Business Media and the Mexican Aerospace Industry Federation (FEMIA) believe that once this has passed, we will see a shift in the supply chain, and we must be ready!” the company says.

Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.
Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.
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 of the cost. Here is a look at a high-value, highly engineered machining process for the Joint Strike Fighter aircraft.
