Waldrich Coburg offers its Taurus 25 and Taurus 30 bridge-type milling machines, which feature cast iron structures and hydrostatic guideways for platform stability for heavy roughing cuts. They are said to provide high-speed, chatter-free finishing for aerospace and mold and die applications. The machines provide five-axis milling with 85/63 hp, 6,000 rpm and torque that is said to power through tough materials. Motorized spindles for finishing speeds of 20,000 rpm supported by feed rates of 1,181 ipm are available. The machines come in two base sizes, 79" × 158" and 98" × 197", and support table loads as heavy as 88,000 lbs.

    Though it won’t replace high speed machining, Boeing sees “low speed machining” as a viable supplement to higher-rpm machines. Using new tools and techniques, a shop’s lower-rpm machining centers can realize much more of their potential productivity in milling aluminum aircraft 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.

    Plastics reinforced with glass present more machining variables to manage than conventional metals. This shop has developed a process to overcome those challenges and has become more adroit at short-run work along the way.
