Aerofoils

The main task of the aerofoils is to provide the aircraft with the necessary lift. Individual components machined here include the pylon bracket, made from titanium, the wing box, made from composite materials, and the reinforcing ribs, made of aluminum.

In a structural component such as the wing box, our tools are used to machine the holes, the pocket contour and the pocket bottoms, etc. It is particularly important here to provide a high level of surface finish quality and the highest degree of stability.

We also develop a machining solution for our customers which is tailored to the machining of the complex, thin-walled aerofoil ribs made of aluminum and uses high-speed PCD mills.
