Three different systems for automation have been added to the HBZ CompactCell HMC to help reduce downtimes. The stand-alone center can be expanded with a supplementary setup station and a crane for palette changes; a space-saving automated system on rails; and a palette rack, which is an extension of the system on rails and enables storage of multiple pallets in a rack in front of the machine. The automated solutions can be adapted individually to table lengths in scaling of 2, 3 and 4 m.

    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.
