Milltronics’ VM250IL-5x five-axis vertical machining center features a trunnion table 255 mm in diameter and XYZ axis travels measuring 550 × 508 × 520 mm. The rotary table offers +40/-120 degrees of A-axis rotation and 360 degrees in the C axis. The machine is equipped with either a 10,000- or 15,000-rpm inline spindle. A 40-station swing-arm automatic toolchanger comes standard.

The machine uses the company’s 9000-series control. It can be programed conversationally, with G code or with a CAM system. The 9000 series is a Windows-based PC control with an Intel Dual Core i5-3610ME processor (64 bit) with 4 GB of memory, 120 GB of disk storage, two USB ports, mid-travel tactile keys and a large 38.1-cm LCD touchscreen.

    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.
