Alfing Corp. has expanded its product line to include machining centers from SHW. The machines include: 

  • The UniSpeed, a compact, multitasking machining center designed for high-efficiency milling and turning.
  • The TightBlock, a compact machine requiring no special foundation and featuring a full enclosure.
  • The PowerSpeed, a large universal milling machine capable of milling and boring large parts. Designed particularly for long workpieces, the machine spindle is said to cover its long travels with speed and precision. 
  • The UniForce, a travelling-column machine suited to large workpieces. 
  • The PowerForce, combining power, dynamics and precision, according to the company. The PowerForce 8 comes with an integrated, continuously positioning C axis.
  • The PowerBridge, a vertical gantry milling machine, whose high rigidity enables five-sided machining of engine blocks in the upright position.

    The recipe for best results is simple: Start with a rigid machine, add a high pressure through-the-spindle coolant system, then combine these with the right drill geometry plus the right speeds and feeds.

  • Tool Considerations for High Speed Cutting

    Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?

  • Composites Machining for the F-35

    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.
