Aerospace Grinding on the G7 Horizontal Machining Center
Today’s capital equipment must be more flexible and capable than ever. With this in mind, Makino has introduced the G7 grinder 5-axis horizontal machining center, capable of grinding, milling, drilling and tapping, all on the same machine. The biggest advantage of a machine like the G7 is its ability to eliminate non-value-added time in the manufacturing process. Because you can go from milling to grinding in one machine, you’re not only saving on capital equipment, but you’re also able to perform several operations in a single setup, eliminating all of the out-of-cut time that does nothing but add to your costs and lead-time. These capabilities make the G7 an ideal solution for Inconel® grinding, nickel-based alloy grinding, root-form grinding and other materials common to aerospace turbine blade-and-vane grinding operations.
