Processing of materials for the aerospace sector
Milling cutters and drills for the manufacturing of aeroplane components.
Lightweight construction plays an ever-increasing role in the aerospace industry. Lower fuel consumption is of the highest priority. Apart from classical materials, engineers in aeroplane design increasingly rely on composite materials. For many years, HUFSCHMIED has been developing innovative solutions that are especially suited to the machining used in aerospace technology.
Milling cutters and drills for the manufacturing of aeroplane components. Leading suppliers to the aerospace industry rely on high-performance tools by HUFSCHMIED. Our Fiber-Line provides shank tools and drills that are perfectly tailored to the requirements of materials used in lightweight construction, such as glass fibre and carbon fibre, as well as pure CFRP and GFRP. These tools do not necessarily have to be used on CNC machines. The Fiber-Line drills can also be used with hand-guided machinery.
- Processing aeroplane interiors
For processing tasks associated with the interiors of aeroplanes, HUFSCHMIED can offer special HSC (high-speed cutting) milling cutters from its range. These material-specific machining tools from the Sharp-Line are ideally suited to produce a mirror finish, but can also process soft plastics or soft aluminium on high-revolution processing centres.
- Processing CFRP and GFRP components
When manufacturing the wings and fuselage of aeroplanes, lightweight materials such as aluminium, lithium/aluminium alloys and fibre composites like CFRP and glass fibre-reinforced aluminium are being used.
Material-optimised tools by HUFSCHMIED excel in service life and cutting behaviour in respect to the manufacturing process of these components. As early as 2013, HUFSCHMIED Zerspanungssysteme GmbH has won the Benchmark Test of the Technical University Vienna for the best overall result when machining CFRP.
