Flexible manufacturing system for American aerospace customer
Orizon Aerostructures is building something truly unique in American manufacturing with a multi-million dollar investment in six additional ECOSPEED F2060 high-speed machining centers and an automated 12 pallet shuttle system from the Starrag Group of Switzerland.
The six ECOSPEED F2060 and two-place rail guided pallet shuttle system will be used to produce a range of aluminum structural components at unrivalled levels of effectiveness and efficiency. With the high-speed-spindle of the ECOSPEED is a cutting volume of up to 10,000 cm3/min reachable. True the kinematics are the 5-axis-machining clearly faster than similar machines with fork heads.
Starrag engineers will work in close partnership with Orizon’s team to ensure each machine and every machining operation is fully engineered, commissioned and approved – and that the system will continue to consistently perform to the exacting requirements laid down by the American company.
The partnership agreement between the two companies has effectively seen them work closely together ‘from machine foundations up’, developing turnkey engineered packages based around time studies, tool selection and part acceptance for a number of workpieces. “We are very excited to partner with Starrag on this major investment.” said Chief Executive Officer Charlie Newell “We are building something unique in Grove, OK unlike any other manufacturing company in the United States. This purchase will allow us to increase our efficiency and productivity fulfilling our goal to always delivery a quality product on time to our customer.”
