Examples Of Delivering Improved Productivity In Aerospace Manufacturing
Avoid Pollution In Stacked Materials
Are you experiencing challenges like delamination, high pressures during Z-axis drilling or serious chip pollution when machining in stacked CFRP/Titanium and CFRP/Aluminum? Eliminate these issues and more with JC898/899 solid carbide end mills. The JC898 offers frontal teeth designed ideally for helical interpolation, which reduces and minimized the risk of delamination, while the JC899 utilized two-in-one geometry to eliminate chip pollution. These result in processes being twice as fast as those performed with alternative solutions and had double the tool life.

Best Practices For Blisk Manufacturing
A blisk is a complex single-piece component with a very high added-value. The challenge in machining this component is to remove excess material between the blades efficiently while maintaining an effective strategy to support the blades during the finishing process to ensure the blade is to the correct profile and surface finish requirements.
With our partners, Grob Machine Tools, Open Mind, and CGTech, we've developed a best practice component machining solution for a Titanium blisk that includes:
- 5-axis advanced milling strategies for roughing and semi-finishing, together with barrel milling techniques for efficient blade finishing.
- Bespoke workholding and blade machining development with advanced dedicated 5-axis simultaneous CAM processes from Open Mind HyperMill.
- Physics-based feed-rate optimization with Vericut Force, resulting in shorter cycle times, improved part quality and increased tool life.

Seco Tools & Heller's Road To Success
Seco Tools and Heller have been working in partnership with Mettis Aerospace to develop a system that uses
the latest technologies to deliver advanced levels of automation, enabling them to reduce lead times and
costs for their customers.
Mettis recently built a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Redditch, UK. In less than six months in
2019, Mettis went from groundwork to being fully equipped with Heller machines, fixtured with Seco tools
to enable their carefully designed manufacturing processes. Integrated into the facility is a cutting-edge
automated assembly line to ensure that orders delivered to Mettis' customers are spot on. The assembly
line includes light scanners, vision systems, in-process gauging and more.
