Grinding Roots

Until the middle of 2010, first-tier subcontract machinist, JJ Churchill, could produce turbine blades only if they had their fir-tree root-forms preground elsewhere, or if they were subsequently added by another subcontractor. No longer is this the case.

The Wide World of Deburring and Refinishing

Burrs, sharp edges, and rough surfaces plague even the most precise metal-cutting or forming process. Deburring and finishing can often be treated as the step-child of a manufacturing process, but its importance is growing as tolerances get tighter and precision devices become the norm.

Turbine Repair Firm Fills the Talent Gap

CRT, a turbine repair firm, is working with Tooling U-SME to educate its workforce. With more than 300 different courses in machining and an extensive library available in welding and inspection, CRT is pleased with the breadth of content.

Conextube switching to ‘smart production’ to stay in the market

The vicissitudes of the Argentine economy make it difficult for small and medium-sized companies to plan long term. That’s why Conextube feels the urgent need to add “intelligent production technology” and increase process automation through the adoption of robots.

Aerospace Electrification Challenges, Opportunities

Over the last 30 years, the electrical power demand on aircraft has increased by a factor of 10. While the growth in aerospace E/E systems has introduced new challenges, it is also creating new opportunities.

CT Scanning Vital for Airworthy Parts

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.
