The Reasons Why Mexico is Fast Becoming a Key Player in Aerospace Manufacturing

The Reasons Why Mexico is Fast Becoming a Key Player in Aerospace Manufacturing | aerospace mechanic | Scoop.it

“According to ProMexico, the Mexican federal agency that promotes trade and investment, has expanded at 17% a year since 2005. Mexico’s aerospace manufacturing, which began as a relatively simple assembly industry, has evolved today into sophisticated aero-parts and fuselage manufacturing, well supported by specialist education and training programs.”

CNC Milling - Prototek Precision Machining

CNC Milling - Prototek Precision Machining | aerospace mechanic | Scoop.it

CNC milling machines or machining centers are computer controlled vertical mills with the ability to move the spindle vertically along the Z-axis. This extra degree of freedom permits their use in engraving applications, and also allows to create 2.5D surfaces such as relief sculptures. When combined with the use of conical tools or a ball nose cutter, it also significantly improves milling precision without impacting speed, providing a cost-efficient alternative to most flat-surface hand-engraving work.

Prototek Precision Machining presently has 3 CNC mills in which we can handle all of your CNC milling needs. We have a Hurco VM2 vertical machining center with a Hurco max control which can be programmed conversational or in g-code. With this machine we can handle your parts up to 40” x 18” x 18”. This machine features a 16 station tool changer, with the machining speeds up to 8000 RPM and it has a powerful 20 hp motor. We also have a Hurco BMC20LR with a ultimax 3 control which can be programmed conversational or in g-code. With this machine we can handle your parts up to 24” x 14” x 14”. This machine features a 16 station tool changer, with the machining speeds up to 6000 RPM and it has a 15 hp motor. We also have a 3 axis Kent knee mill. With this machine we can do larger parts then our machining centers because this machine does not have the guards around the machine. This machine has table travel of 30” in the X, 15.500” in the Y and 15” in the Z.

Prototek Precision Machining feels we can service just about any customer that calls on us.

Future of Advanced Automation in Precision Machining

Future of Advanced Automation in Precision Machining | aerospace mechanic | Scoop.it

As manufacturers push for tighter tolerances, smaller components, and faster turnaround, advanced automation continues to have widespread applications in an increasing number of industries. Automation not only increases part repeatability in micro and ultra-precision machining processes, it significantly reduces the labor required to produce a part. Eliminating labor costs reduces per-piece costs, especially in higher volume applications, and insulates the customer against future price volatility due to the labor market.

The Popularity Of TIG Welding

 

The Commencing Of TIG Welding

TIG welding is a technique that fuses 2 reactive metals like magnesium and aluminum. The TIG (tungsten inert fuel) welding was made known in the middle of the 1940's and ended up being very popular. Using aluminum in welding and other types of structural techniques turned extensively utilized with the introduction of this welding technique. During the course of the welding process, an arc is produced in between a pointed tungsten electrode and the surface area to be welded and the end result of the fuel protect is a nice weld. This type of welding technique protects against the incidence of oxidization.

TIG makes use of a pair of gases helium and argon to produce the fuel protect. Whenever these 2 types of gases are combined, the final result is a much better welding velocity and deeper welding penetration. Argon is often used in TIG welding considering that it is denser compared to air and it has much better coverage when welding. With TIG welding, a welder can accomplish much better with various kinds of weld particularly steel and aluminum. The filler rod is another important aspect in TIG welding. The filler rod is normally made from the same} materials as the base metallic. The filler rod is utilized for reinforcing joints and welding heavy metals.

TIG Welding Is Used By Leading Industries

Among one of the early users of TIG welding was actually the aerospace industry. They have a desire in TIG as a result of the 'fillers' that could be utilized to produce very strong bonds. This is actually also utilized in nuclear and petrochemical industries. Motorcycles and bicycle designs likewise utilized this sort of welding. TIG welding has a number of benefits however it may not be ideal for all types of welding needs.

Whenever creating consumer merchandise where looks is of significance, TIG is an ideal choice. TIG generates a spectacular finishing coat. It will definitely be remaining since there no reason for grinding the surface. The precious time spared while doing so is quite beneficial. In most industrial procedures, high quality is given a lot of significance as compared to velocity. TIG is slower compared to MIG however the weld results are much better. TIG welding can join a pair of different components or any weldable components despite having thickness of .55 millimeters. In fine jewelry, even gold could be welded by TIG. Chrome cobalt frameworks in the field of dentistry can likewise be welded as well as titanium.

TIG requires very experienced welders to work the equipment. During the course of the welding procedure the two hands are utilised one hand in the equipment and the other hand is the filler wire. But welders with experienced from fuel welding the swap is very easy simply because they are experienced to filling wire manually feeding.

TIG Welding Should Be Handled With Extra Care

Extra care should be observed when working with a TIG equipment since this is among the most risky welding technique. If preventative measure is not observed, the light made from the weld will produce an 'arc eye" to the welder that usually is inflaming the cornea. Protective gear should be used to contain the sparks from any shut-by individuals. During the course of the welding process harmful gases are produced. It is really vital that you must wear protective mask whenever working or as much as possible weld in well-ventilated places. TIG welding process is continuously developing ever since its introduction in the 1940's.
