Engines

Intense competition exists on an international scale between airlines and within the entire aerospace industry. The aircraft of the future must be as light and as economical as possible. Added to this is the passengers’ demand for the highest safety standards.

This presents a challenge for machining too, since materials which are difficult to machine, such as those used in the manufacture of jet engines, require special metal cutting tools and reliable, integrated processes

We have the right tools for machining titanium, composites or Ni/Co alloys. Our industry specialists possess a vast knowledge and many years of experience in the machining of demanding materials in the aerospace industry. With our extensive knowledge and experience, we develop tailored machining processes for you.​

Engine Housing

Engine Housing

The turbine housing of a jet engine is designed for maximum stability in order to withstand the possible impact of a breakaway turbine blade and its enormous centrifugal forces, if a technical fault occurs. Turbine housings are therefore generally manufactured from titanium alloys, Inconel or Waspaloy and additionally reinforced with aramid matting.

Multi-axis mill-turn centres and vertical boring and turning mills are used for machining these components. The right tools manufactured by us in this field for turning, milling and boring are the Sky•tec™, Tiger•tec® Silver PVD, Ti-Family, X•treme Inox and Alpha® Ni. All of these are high-performance tools which stand for maximum efficiency and precision.​

Turbine Discs

Turbine Discs

Turbine discs are among the engine components manufactured from titanium 64, heat-resistant high temperature alloys such as Inconel 718 and Udimet 720. These are complex workpieces with various different chambers and grooves which are rarely optimally accessible. Our aerospace specialists develop a machining solution for this which is tailored to the form of the component, and this solution can be applied in multi-axis mill-turn centres using our high-tech tools. Cost efficiency and process reliability are of highest importance in this situation.​​
