REDUCED CYCLE TIME AND COST OF ALUMINUM RIB MACHINING

A flashback from earlier this year when David Modig, President Modig Machine Tool, attended the virtual event: Inspiration through Innovation ITI 2020.

MODIG RigiMill Moving Table

Achieve significant cycle time reduction when machining a typical single aisle wing rib with a MODIG RigiMill Moving Table (MT). Using vacuum plate work holding and a combination of Seco custom solid carbide and standard cutting tools, the high-quality rib is fully machined in one operation from solid aircraft grade aluminum billet. Typical cycle time reductions of 50% can be achieved: From 1 hour down to 30 minutes! Collaborative partner technologies: Modig Machine Tool RigiMill MT, Siemens NX, Renishaw probing, ICam verification/optimization and Seco Tools.
