The production capacity of space manufacturing industry can reflect a country’s national defense technology and economic strength. The aerospace production of numerical control technology and equipment demand is very clear and urgent. The quantity, function, precision, machining ability and use level of NC machine tools are of great significance to aviation industry. Why use CNC machining? What are the features of CNC aircraft parts? We will explore these issues below.
First of all, we know what is space product? Aircraft by structure can be divided into fuselage, engine, airborne equipment and components, including wings, large siding and tail structure, housing, valve bodies, hydraulic valves, optical tubes, rotor blades, fasteners, connectors, etc.
Second, why are CNC important in the aerospace industry?
Aviation industry has very high and even strict requirements for product structure design, function, performance, product quality and reliability. Many new materials and structures are primarily used in aircraft parts. National defense needs and market competition require greatly shortening the development cycle and production cycle of space products. In addition, the average cost of the final product needs to continue to decline, so the aerospace manufacturing operations put forward higher requirements, the need for advanced production skills. Modern CNC machining is a key part of advanced manufacturing skills and has become a decisive key skill, especially in aerospace manufacturing.
1 CNC processing technology is the process of induction of a variety of advanced skills, including computer technology, communication technology, modern production technology, digital control technology, etc.
2 In the process of CNC machining/turning, just change the setting and parameters of CNC machine can realize the development of new products and another batch of processing, greatly improving the automation and flexibility.
3 Can be in a machine or a clamping initiative to complete multi-channel CNC machining, greatly shorten the processing time and production cycle, but also improve the efficiency.
4 CNC machining/turning technology can improve the precision of aerospace products, reduce or maximum limit to reduce production errors, so that CNC aircraft parts have higher quality and durability
Most materials for aerospace components need to be cut and processed during the manufacturing process.
Again, we summarize the main characteristics of CNC machining aerospace parts.
High function: the use of new difficult-to-process materials, such as titanium;
Lightweight: Many use thin-walled structures;
Accuracy: continuous improvement of machining accuracy;
Efficiency: the need for greater speed and efficiency;
Reliability and economy: increasingly strict quality and cost control.
In summary, we can clearly understand why CNC machining plays a pivotal role in the aerospace industry.
