Mazak’s Integrex i-630 multitasking machining center shown with an aircraft engine case can accommodate a maximum workpiece size of 41.34" diameter × 39.37" high (1050 × 1000 mm) for simultaneous five-axis machining plus turning.
Matching Processes to New Materials
“The machining solutions for higher efficiency engines that are designed to achieve higher by-pass ratios and higher com-
bustion temperatures must deal with more exotic alloys and more exotic cooling solutions in the turbine stage,” said Greg Hyatt, vice president and chief technical officer, DMG / Mori Seiki USA (Hoffman Estates, IL). “The newest blisk and blade designs can’t be machined with older four-axis machines. All of the new designs require five-axis machining capability and processes that can handle difficult-to-machine materials.” To meet these uniquely challenging machining require- ments, DMG / Mori Seiki has developed new processes for machining heat-resistant materials like titanium aluminide, sintered nickel-based alloys, and carbon fiber for structural components for its machining center technology. “Pinch
Provides “inline” fluid recycling faster, easier & cheaper than how you maintain your cutting fluids today
No more draining tanks, lost production time, wasted labor, moving hundreds of gallons of new and old fluids around the shop, disposing of valuable/recyclable coolants, and high coolant bills! The SumpDoc™
simply moves from one
machine to the next, seamlessly cleaning and rejuvenating the machine’s coolant. All in the background while your machines continue to produce parts.
