LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., Dec. 6, 2016 – At the 2017 AeroDef Manufacturing Conference and Exhibition, GF Machining Solutions’ applications experts will be on hand in the company’s booth 421 to discuss advanced technologies, products and turnkey systems designed specifically for complex aerospace and defense work. Visitors to the event that takes place March 6-9 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Texas will also discover the wide range of GF Machining Solutions’ equipment and flexible solutions that boost efficiency and accuracy, especially in the machining of aircraft parts from advanced materials.
One such solution designed specifically for tough aerospace part production is the advanced CUT 200 Dedicated wire EDM. Through its built-in A/B tilt/rotary table, fast axis speeds and quick wire threading, this precision-focused machine can quickly and easily cut turbine discs – fir tree patterns – from alloy workpiece materials. It also incorporates on-machine, in-process inspection to ensure consistent, high accuracy parts production.
Another solution is GF Machining Solutions’ first mill-turn machine, the new Mikron MILL P 800 U ST. This compact machine combines milling and 4-axis simultaneous turning within a single machine platform to help manufacturers achieve optimal productivity, accuracy and cost effectiveness. In addition to cutting aluminum parts more than 50 percent faster than conventional processing, the machine also eliminates transfer-related part runout issues and errors for overall better finished part quality.
Additionally, the MILL P 800 U ST is automation ready and equipped with pallet changers for 2, 7, 9 or 12 pallets. It also easily integrates into existing automation systems such as those from System 3R.
