Technology partnership highlights machining strategies - find out how you can save upto 90% of cycle time.
WNT will join forces with OPEN MIND, DMG MORI, Training 2000 and The University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN), to deliver a series of advanced machining strategy days aimed at the aerospace sector in the north west of England. Taking place at Training 2000’s state-of-the-art Advanced Manufacturing and Automation Centre (AMAC) in Blackburn.
This series of events will take place over four sessions on the 27th and 28th February, but with a specific focus on the benefits that high-performance circular segment milling can bring to the machining of structural and aerofoil components in the aerospace sector.
Delegates to the events will see first-hand how the combination of WNT’s 3D Finish (tapered conical barrel tools) solid carbide milling tools and OPEN MIND'S hyperMILL MAXX Machining CAD CAM software can deliver significant cycle time savings (up to 90 per cent), as well as the improvements in surface quality that can be achieved.
Each two-hour session will consist of:
- a brief presentations/introduction from WNT, OPEN MIND, DMG MORI and Training 2000,
- demonstration of the capabilities of the 3D Finish tools and OPEN MIND'S milling strategy on Training 2000’s DMU 75 monoBlock five-axis machining centre.
The test piece replicates typical challenges faced by the aerospace sector, these being deep pockets, such as those found on aero-structures and free-form profiles typical of turbine blades.
Dates and times of the sessions:
Tuesday 27th February 2018 - 10am - 12noon
Tuesday 27th February 2018 - 1pm - 3pm
Wednesday 28th February 2018 - 10am - 12noon
Wednesday 28th February 2018 - 1pm - 3pm
A breakfast roll, tea and coffee will be provided on the morning session and cake, tea or coffee in the afternoon.
There are limited places on the sessions so please book early to secure your place.
