Improved Solutions that Maximize Productivity and Reduce Expenses for Machining Aerospace Aluminum Structural Components

The aerospace industry is facing unprecedented challenges, particularly related to the commercial side of the industry. Although the recovery is beginning, production rates are significantly reduced and could continue for a significant amount of time. The pressure will be intense on suppliers to keep their businesses viable while producing much fewer numbers of parts.

Shops which employ modern, productive manufacturing processes will always succeed over those who do not embrace those technologies. Machining centers with state-of-the-art performance provide the technological solutions necessary to allow shops to compete.

This whitepaper details how you can achieve productivity improvements of 30% to 40% with the newest machine technologies. Shops with old technology and equipment will not be able to compete with those that have modernized operations. The Makino MAG3 series 5-Axis horizontal machining centers provide the aerospace manufacturing industry with powerful production platforms necessary to competitively machine aluminum structural parts.
