Diversified Capabilities Of DEK's Aerospace Machine Shop

5-axis CNC Machining Aerospace Machining

5-axis CNC Machining

Basically, most industrial machining works on three fundamental axes, X, Y, and Z but a 5-axis CNC machining incorporates additional 2 rotary axis movements (A and B) which render it the ability to become multi-directional. It helps to reduce production time significantly by reducing multiple setups which, in turn, helps in reducing errors.

Many companies advertise about true 5-axis simultaneous machining while, in fact, they employ other versions such as 3+2 axis (3 axes for machining and 2 axes for positioning) and in some cases 4+1 (4 axes for machining and 1 axis for positioning).

Considering the varying complex contours of aerospace parts, it is a sensible choice to configure them using 5 Axis CNC machines. At DEK you’ll get an unmatchable service of true 5-axis simultaneous machining.

CNC Turning (Vertical and Horizontal)

DEK’s CNC-turning services incorporate cutting-edge precision technology to ensure speedy production along with tight tolerances. CNC turning is the best application for the parts with rotational symmetry. Our CNC turning processes include cutting, facing, threading, forming, drilling, knurling, broaching, and boring. Our 5-axis CNC Lathe machine, which turns materials at high speed while cutting away excess material, uses multiple high-speed spindles and is controlled by CAD (Computer Assisted Drawing) software. We follow blueprints to make sure the CNC Lathe produces precise specifications for small and large scale productions concerning all types of metals/alloys and the majority of plastics.

Dimensional CMM inspection Aerospace machining

Dimensional CMM inspection

CMM inspection is an important milestone for all aerospace engineering projects where precision and safety go hand in hand. This process ensures that your 2D drawings and CAD models are fully realized in terms of reliability, accuracy, and safety. However, very few machine shops have the technology and expertise to carry out proper third party inspection. Inside our temperature/humidity controlled lab where there is no possibility of thermal expansion, we utilize several contact and vision CMM systems to render precise dimensions of any component along X, Y and Z-axis. For the components that very tiny and fragile to employ contact measuring, we employ vision or non-contact CMMs that work with laser.

Some of the aerospace components/parts we can manufacture

Materials for Aerospace CNC machining

Material choice is a key element in aerospace engineering. Essentially, the best materials for aerospace projects must possess the properties of being lightweight, highly temperature-resistant, damage-tolerant, and durable.

Some of the most preferred materials for the aerospace industry which lie within the ambit of our expertise include:

Aluminum

Aluminum has a long history of being the most dominating metal in aerospace applications. For some time in the past 70% of the aircraft used to be made of aluminum. Compared to other metals or steels, it is lightweight, cheaper, state-of-the-art, and easily-workable, thereby contributing to fuel-efficiency as well as weight allowance.

Alloys of aluminum are also recognized in terms of their strength and corrosion-resistance, making them the ideal materials for machinery and engine components.

In spite of the introduction and advancement of other refined materials (new alloys and composites), aluminum and its alloys still have a decent range of applications inside the aerospace industry.

aluminum machining aerospace
Titanium Aerospace Machining

Titanium

Titanium is also a widely recognized material because of its low density, strength, and corrosion-resistance.  Titanium came into the scene with the inception of cold-war and in the 1950s it gained a strong foothold in the aerospace industry. Although it is comparatively heavier than aluminium, its impressive strength implies that you may use less of it. Ti6Al4V is the popular grade of titanium.

Along with the introduction of various titanium alloys, military aircrafts are opting for titanium to manufacture stronger and lighter components.

Titanium is taken as the material for engine components, hydraulic systems, machinery, and aircraft structural frame.

Tungsten

Tungsten and its alloys are also commonly used in aerospace machining and engineering. In order to minimize vibrations and ensure balance, they are chosen as the material for machinery components.

Tungsten Aerospace Machining
Superalloys Aerospace Machining

Superalloys

Superalloys (High-performance alloys) are the group alloys that demonstrate unparalleled corrosion/oxidation resistant characteristics and retain their mechanical strength, stiffness, and dimensional stability at very high temperatures. Superalloys can become the ideal choice for a jet engine’s hottest sections, compressor, and turbine stages.

We have expertise on many superalloys including but not limited to: nickel-based, cobalt-based and iron-based superalloys.

Composite Materials

The use of composite material (mainly CFRP-Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic and GFRP-Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic) in the aerospace industry has been increasing rapidly since 1987. They are easy to handle, design, shape, and repair. They also play an important role in fuel efficiency and weight reduction. Previously, they were used for cabin components or light structural pieces but now they are also being used for landing gear, engines, wings, and fuselage skins.

Composite Materials Plastic Aerospace Machining

Apart from these materials, we can work with varieties of other materials such as stainless steel, copper, chromium, brass, bronze, beryllium, manganese, molybdenum, platinum, graphite, etc. Our technology and team are capable of machining almost any of your specified materials.

    Moreover, aerospace machining offers much more to offer based on what you require.

    What is the Aerospace Machining Process?

    Figure 8 – Achieving Tighter Tolerances through Aerospace Machining

    The aerospace machining process is consisting of multiple material processing techniques.

    It’s technologically enhanced and used for fabricating parts that require precision and accuracy.

    Cost-effectively producing high strength parts is a key feature of the aerospace machining process.

    The aerospace machining process is performed in a fully controlled environment to maximize the output.

    It’s an automated process, so it requires a soft file that contains the structure, shape, and design of the required part.

    All machining is performed based on that soft file, so it is crucial to understand its importance.

    Afterward, the right aerospace machining process is selected based on your requirements.

    Manufacturers select the 5-Axis CNC for fast and most advanced machining and get precision and tight tolerances for your aerospace parts. 

    Moreover, 5-Axis CNC reduces the overall machining steps to make it optimized and fast.

    Advanced aerospace machining also eliminates non-value-added to make it rapid.

    Furthermore, manufacturers perform grinding, milling, or drilling only if the part requires.

    Managing the quality at each stage and following standard procedures is important because a single imperfection or malfunction in part fabrication can lead to failure and disastrous results.

    Hence, CNC machining is utilized in aerospace machining to eliminate the risk of error and achieve high-precision parts.

    What is Aerospace Machining with 5 Axis CNC?

    Figure 9 – Horizontal CNC as a part of Aerospace Machining

    It is important to understand that aerospace machining differs from standard CNC machining.

    Furthermore, manufacturers require it where parts require incredibly tight tolerances.

    The advanced CNC machining process helps achieve fast production and fabrication of aerospace parts.

    Aerospace machining is properly controlled and offers durability through its effective 5-Axis CNC machining process.

    Moreover, the aerospace industry is aware of the importance of 5-Axis CNC machining to maintain exceptional quality and to improve part performance.

    5-Axis CNC machining enables us to get:

    • High Precision Manufacturing
    • Variety of Parts of Different Complexity
    • Lightweight Materials of High Strength
    • Extreme Accuracy
    • Eliminate the Chances of Human Error
    • Fabricate Complex Geometries

    Considering the aerospace parts’ variation along with the complexity, 5-Axis CNC makes sense to achieve the utmost precision and tight tolerances.

    The use of 5-Axis CNC in aerospace machining allows for continuous reconfiguration of parts.

    Moreover, its ability to handle aerospace parts’ complex geometries is ever-evolving and continuous.

    Additionally, 5-Axis CNC enables us to the mill, drill, and manufacture parts according to the specifications.

    It copes better with the scope and technicality of aerospace parts. It easily suits the high-level demands of the aerospace industry.

    5-Axis gives us the freedom that is impossible to achieve with 3-Axis and 4-Axis CNC that give us the design and geometry limitations.

    What is the importance of Tight Tolerances in Aerospace Machining?

    Figure 10 – The 5-Axis CNC for Aerospace Machining

    Aerospace parts have only one fundamental requirement, and that is to meet tighter tolerances while increasing the material removal rates.

    Moreover, aerospace machining helps in achieving this fundamental requirement.

    Achieving tight tolerances is obvious for structural parts and sometimes requires tough machining.

    In order to achieve precision in aerospace machining, It is important to utilize machines that can remove as much extra material as possible to meet tight tolerances.

    Tight tolerance of ±0.001mm is acceptable for aerospace parts and required to maximize the part performance and quality.

    When determining the tolerance limit for aerospace parts, always remember that the tighter the tolerance is, the better the part will fit.

    Part’s efficiency and reliable functionality completely depend on its tolerance.

    Remember, always going for the tightest tolerance can increase the overall cost, and perfectly manufactured parts can cost you more.

    Tighter tolerances of parts eliminate the risk of its failure, jam, slip, or others.

    There should not be even a slight margin of error in aerospace parts because of a single imperfection and cost you millions.

    Hence, precision and tight tolerance are what aerospace machining is about.

    How Does Aerospace Machining Deal with Complex Part Surfaces?

    Figure 11 – Achieving Tightest Tolerances through Aerospace Machining

    Aerospace parts like fuel-system components typically feature complex part surfaces.

    These complex surfaces feature various angles and holes of different sizes.

    You require extremely powerful and technologically enhanced machines to machine the complex aerospace parts.

    In general, 5-Axis CNC machining is preferred and proven effective against these surfaces.

    The aerospace machining process aligns and begins the cutting process.

    Through aerospace machining, handling complex part surfaces is quite easy and high-speed.

    The precision aerospace machining features shorter cutters with high speed and accuracy.

    The use of aerospace machining for complex part surfaces gives us:

    • Longer tool life
    • More durability and performance
    • Better cutting fix orientation
    • Produce better surface finish
    • Improves accuracy
    • Minimize the vibrations
    • Programming is relatively simple

    Complex surfaces require time to be perfectly machined, and a single mistake can be very costly.

    Hence, you can eliminate the chances for errors to save cost and time through aerospace machining.

    Complex part surfaces are not an issue or a challenge anymore, and through aerospace machining, you can achieve tighter tolerances for these parts.

    How You Enhance the Quality of Aerospace Machining?

    Figure 12 – Aerospace Machined Complex Part Surfaces

    The proper use of raw materials, power, and other resources can enhance aerospace machining quality.

    • Optimizing the Machining Process
    • Reducing the Raw Material Waste
    • Minimizing the Waste of Resources and Energy
    • Utilizing Cost-Effective Raw Materials
    • Reducing the Process Steps
    • Increasing the Part Fabrication Speed
    • Maintaining the Precision and Accuracy
    • Reducing the Number of Defects

    Moreover, the following factors can affect the aerospace machining cost:

    • The Part Surface Complexity
    • The Selection of Raw Material
    • The Cutting Precision
    • The Tighter Tolerances
    • The Surface Finish
