Mason, Ohio – Makino will attend the 51st International Paris Air Show from June 15-21, 2015, in Chalet C8 and Stand A110 of Hall 3 of Le Bourget Exhibition Centre. The company is planning to highlight its latest technologies and process solutions for aerospace engine and structural components, including titanium, steel and aluminum milling, blade and vane grinding, and EDM drilling of film cooling holes and diffuser shapes.
“At the 2015 Paris Air Show, attendees from all segments of the aerospace industry can meet with Makino’s senior executives, key designers, and process engineers to identify solutions to their manufacturing challenges,” said Mark Rentschler, Makino director of marketing. “Our substantial investments in the research and development of aircraft engine and titanium structural component manufacturing processes have equipped us to provide the most productive and profitable manufacturing solutions in the global aerospace marketplace.”
Appointments with Makino personnel can be scheduled online now at www.makino.com/paris.
Several key technologies that Makino plans to detail at the event include the T1, G7, and EDBV8 machining centers and electric discharge machines.
The T1 5-axis horizontal machining center is the latest entry to Makino’s T-Series product line, and has been designed to efficiently machine a wide variety of parts and materials. It shares much of the ADVANTiGE technologies Makino introduced with its larger, purpose-built T2 and T4 machines. Complementing these technologies is the T1’s unique kinematic structure, which includes a 155° tilting A-axis and deep chest column for full five-sided machining capability in parts up to 1,500mm in diameter.
For high-nickel-alloy blade and vane production, Makino has created the G7 5-axis horizontal machining center. With its flexibility and capability to perform grinding, milling and drilling in one machine platform, the G7 enables aircraft engine manufacturers to eliminate multiple setups and non-value-added time.
Makino’s EDBV8 is the company’s latest EDM hole-drilling machine designed specifically for the production of film cooling holes and diffuser shapes in aerospace blades and vanes. Its speed, flexibility, and reliability make it easy to effectively machine a wide range of hole shapes and sizes within a single setup, significantly reducing required tool variety and overall cycle times.
