Available from Yama Seiki, the AWEA BL-series horizontal boring mill is available with two different boring spindle models: the BL-S series and the BL-FM. Both models are equipped with a 40-tool automatic toolchanger located outside the working area to keep coolant and chips off the magazine and toolchange arm. X-axis travel ranges from 78.4" to 157.4", depending on the model; Y-axis travel measures 70.9" (94.5" optional); and W-axis travel measures 23.6". The table can accommodate a maximum load of 22,000 lbs.

The BL-S series machine features a 120-mm (4.7") diameter quill-type boring spindle with 600 mm of travel designed to increase rigidity and stability during heavy cuts. The machine’s spindle motor features continuous/30-min. ratings of 22/26 kW (30/35 hp). The stepless, variable-speed, gear-driven spindle has a two-step gearbox with speeds ranging to 2,400 rpm.

The BL-FM series features continuous/30-min. ratings of 22/25 kW (30/35 hp) and a stepless, variable-speed spindle with speeds ranging to 6,000 rpm in a 480 × 480 mm square section. The spindle temperature is controlled by an oil spindle chiller.

    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.
