Available from Advanced Machine & Engineering, Tibo Tiefbohrtechnik’s E10 series of deep-drilling machines is designed to offer the precision required for bonescrews and other medical parts. The machine provides a bore diameter of 2.5 to 5 mm with a drill path of 0.06 mm for drilling depths ranging to 160 mm in titanium alloys (Ti6Al4V) and implant steel 1.4441.

Selected from Tibo’s modular system, the E10’s vertical supply magazine stores 80 workpieces, and a gantry gripper performs loading and unloading for the drilling stations. Process data storage devices integrated into the touchpanel control units help ease setup of varied parts.

    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.
