Rapid innovation in the aerospace industry means soaring demand for high precision components.
Innovation in the aerospace industry is a non-stop flight of new technologies in commercial air travel and now, more than ever, space exploration. Private companies such as SpaceX are introducing new ways for private citizens to travel in space. NASA is working on spacecraft technology to smash asteroids and there is talk of returning to the moon. Meanwhile, airlines strive to meet increasing consumer demand, pent up during the pandemic and now taking off as air travel gets back to some sense of normal.
All the innovations launched in the industry require that manufacturers work with the utmost efficiency to reduce cycle times and speed time to market. And that means a need for superior quality, high-precision components quickly. Swiss screw technology is on board and ready to help manufacturers make their connections to the components they need with a number of advantages.
On schedule – Swiss screw machines can meet shorter lead schedules and quicker turnaround time frames in the aerospace industry, offering unmatched efficiency. Multi-axis Swiss machines can execute more operations in one setup – drilling, cutting, milling, etc. – reducing cycle times and set-up expense.
First class quality – Swiss screw machines better support the stock material during production of aerospace components, so the part moves while the tooling is stationary. There is less risk of the support material moving resulting in superior quality and high precision accuracy.
Material flexibility – It’s all systems go when it comes to Swiss technology’s versatility. The machines meet a wide range of material needs such as titanium, copper, lithium, tin, silver, gold, nickel, and high-tech alloys used in aerospace applications.
