Aluminium Aircraft Link Machining

One Hit machining of Aircraft Link components

76% time saving machining aluminium aircraft link components with MODIG HHV3 machining centre

Modig’s machining process allows the manufacturing of complete parts in one set up with horizontal machining

SIGNIFICANT REDUCTION IN CYCLE TIME:

With only one set up, no dedicated tooling or preparation necessary, the HHV, Horizontal High Velocity machining centre by MODIG provides a lean method for production.

HHV is a universal machining centre for bar and extrusion components that automatically pulls the uncut bars or extrusions into position for machining and delivers a finished part into a part catcher. Benefits of MODIG HHV machine centres include:

  • Reduced set up time
  • No dedicated tooling necessary
  • No work holding fixtures
  • Significant reduction in cycle time
