AV-Tech Machine Tool has added the HT-500A and HF-380 series CNC HMCs to the Twinhorn line. The machines are designed with high-tensile Meehanite cast iron on all major parts to increase rigidity. They also feature a three-layer, T-shape, box-type design. The base structure’s multiple layers and enforced ribs prevent deformation and reduce vibration during high-speed operation, the company says.
 
To further enhance stability and resistance of column motion, the machines feature a differential slide base and high-/low-level X-axis guideways with a 580-mm-wide span.
 

Other features include external spindle cooling systems, air-lock systems on spindle noses and floating-tool clamp/unclamp systems to reduce noise and vibration

    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.
