Aerospace RibsLike most other engine components, casings are frequently machined from difficult materials, such as titanium and heat resistant superalloys.
With an intense focus on minimising component weight, airframe ribs have traditionally been machined from aluminium. While this is still common, breakthroughs in materials technology are driving a rise in the use of aluminium lithium and composite materials. As a result, manufacturers producing these parts need solutions tailored to several types of material properties.
