Spanish machine tool builder Ibarmia offers a moving column machine that has an interesting table-within-a-table configuration. The main table on its ZVH machines has an integral C-axis rotary table that’s flush with the main one. Combined with the machine’s B-axis tilting head, the rotary table permits full five-axis machining. The rotary table also enables turning operations to be performed on the machine. This video demonstrates both milling and turning being performed on a ZVH machine.

    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.
