With aluminium we have more experience in large components, normally one-piece components for smaller aircraft. These components have been produced in aluminium on machines such as:
- A7 – Large 5-axis horizontal machining centre
- MAG3.EX – Large 5-axis horizontal machining centre
- MAG3 – Large 5-axis horizontal machining centre
Here, the challenge is the amount of material to be removed and controlling deformation. The process is critical for obtaining parts with the required tolerance and without the bending produced by heavy roughing.
