First Air-Worthy Metal Printed RF Filter Ready for Take-Off

The last two years (2015 and 2016) could be looked upon as the tipping point for direct metal printing (DMP) within the aerospace industry, as the technology increasingly made the jump beyond prototyping to production parts and assemblies ready for flight.

Ballbar diagnostics aid airframe manufacture

Without periodic checking and maintenance, CNC machine tools can lose positioning accuracy and introduce errors over time. Machining complex, high-value airframe components, BAE Systems turned to a wireless ballbar system to provide the machine tool diagnostics data it needed to maximise quality and productivity.

The route to successful composites machining

New CoroMill® Plura routers unveiled by Sandvik Coromant offer optimised milling and slotting operations in composite materials such as CFRP (carbon fibre reinforced plastic) and GFRP (glass fibre reinforced plastic). Production engineers, machine shop managers and operators will all benefit from the patented geometries provided by the new routers, particularly those in the aerospace industry, where these materials are increasingly prevalent, as well as others in sectors such as automotive, motorsport, wind power and marine.
