Chicago – Make plans to attend the IMTS 2014 Conferences to learn about High-Efficiency Machining of Aluminum Aircraft Structural Components.
DATE: Tuesday, 9/11 from 1:13 to 2:34
DATE: Thursday, September 11 from 9:00 AM - 9:55 AM ROOM: W-192C
SPEAKER: Antony Theaker, North West Area Manager (UK), SGS Tool UK Ltd
One of the most significant barriers to the implementation of High Efficiency Machining is the design and performance limitations of the cutting tool. The speed at which it can remove material over an acceptable lifespan is effectively holding back the entire civil and defense aerospace industries, where efficiency gains are necessary to maintain and increase market share against aggressive global competition.
Taking the development of a Patented advanced, high performance cutting tool design to the next level through comprehensive empirical research and testing, has resulted in a range of cutting tools specifically targeted at High Efficiency Machining. Correctly applied these tools are capable of reducing machining cycle times by over 50%, removing up to 800% more material, improving tool life by over 300% and reducing energy consumption by over 25%.
The educational and informative conferences run Sept. 8-11, 2014 in the West Building, Level 1. To register for this or any session, visit www.imts.com/education/imtsconference.html.
