Two attorneys explain why a strong sales contract is a necessity in the metals industry.
While it is typically up to the design engineers or the customer to specify the materials needed for a part, sometimes even materials within specs seem just a little more difficult to machine.
Big things are happening in the aviation maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) market: the first industry-wide material allowables for metal additive manufacturing (AM) parts are anticipated to be released this autumn.
Industrial computed tomography is a cost-effective, reliable way to meet intensifying requirements for qualifying both the design of aerospace parts and the materials needed for their construction.
The most important step in digitizing any manufacturing or supply chain process is analysis of the ROI and business case and being able to demonstrate success to company leaders.
In the near absence of academic programs to teach undergraduate engineering students additive manufacturing, a California-based startup has stepped in to help fill the void through internships.
Machining aerospace materials is a challenging task. Not only are machining operations tightly controlled, a wide variety of workpiece materials are employed, including aluminum, titanium, and carbon-fiber reinforced plastics (CFRPs). The following is a brief guide to cutting tool options for successful machining of airframe components. All of the tools referenced are manufactured by Mitsubishi Materials.
