Pursuing precision multitasking machining for the aerospace industry

Aviation parts manufacturing, aerospace parts manufacturing

HIROKO Jet Technology Co., Ltd.

The situation when interviewed

Responsible for handling jet engine outsourced from parts Rolls-Royce.
The material is a hard-to-cut titanium alloy and Inconel, with varying taper thickness, requiring 1-micron accuracy for large components.

  1. Issues

    Reducing lead time for manufacturing large parts

    • We want to shorten lead time by making both large-scale parts setup and precision machining compatible.
    • Basic performance issues such as rigidity and thermal stability are essential conditions.
    • Precise measurement will be performed inside the machine, so good accessibility is also important.
  2. Implementation

    Installed a VTR-350A double-column multitasking machine, a VTM-1200YB 5-axis vertical multitasking machine, and an MCR-BⅢ machining double-column machining center (5-face applications)

  3. Effectiveness

    Achieving shorter lead times with a 5-axis machine that demonstrates stable accuracies (5-face applications)

    • VTM-2000YB not only provides process-intensive machining, but also has good accessibility and easy in-machine measurement.
    • Stable accuracy and productivity are maintained even with all-stainless steel parts by 5-sided machining with the universal head of the MCR-BⅢ.
