Beating the elements to advance productivity

05/03/2018

Delegates were guided through the benefits of circular segment cutters and the HypeMILL MAX software, before seeing both in action in a live demonstration featuring aerospace component features.

Ceratizit WNT recently joined forces with Open Mind, DMG Mori, Training 2000 and UCLAN, to present a series of half-day seminars aimed at improving machining productivity with a focus on the aerospace sector. The sessions were fully-booked and despite the best efforts of ‘Beast from the East’ all four sessions were extremely well-attended.

Taking place at Training 2000’s state-of-the-art Advanced Manufacturing and Automation Centre (AMAC) in Blackburn the sessions highlighted the cycle time savings that can be achieved on complex components, machined on five-axis machines, thanks to the combination of Open Mind’s hyperMILL MAXX Machining CAD CAM software and WNT’s circular segment cutters. Customers from across the north west of England saw theory put into practice in the AMAC, with a demonstration that featured typical aerospace component features, such aerospace structural components and aerofoil sections.

“Making use of this combination of WNT tooling, Open Mind software and the latest five-axis machining technology is delivering significant cycle time savings, with the added benefit of improved surface quality,” says Ceratizit WNT’s Business Development Manager Adrian Fitts.
