The AMRC with Boeing Utilizing the GCM 5-Axis Combination Milling Waterjet in Aerospace Research Project
Newburgh Engineering has begun working with the AMRC with Boeing in addition to Eneplan (Energy Efficient Process Planning System) to use Eneplan's research on production of new aerospace components. One process that is being explored is the use of abrasive waterjet cutting in manufacturing processes to replace traditional cutting methods.
To investigate the benefits of using waterjet cutting, the AMRC with Boeing and Newburgh are using the recently installed GCM Combination 5-Axis Mill and Waterjet to produce precision work for the aerospace industry. With the GCM Waterjet's ability to cut 5-axis parts and then mill those same composite pieces on the same table without the need to refixure, it's easy to see how efficiency can be increased.
We are always excited to see how our waterjet systems are being used to improve on existing processes. With the AMRC with Boeing and their several ongoing manufacturing projects, we look forward to seeing the way we can help change the way that aerospace composites are manufactured.
