Why Is CNC Machining Important in the Aerospace Industry?

The production capacity of aerospace manufacturing reflects a country's national defense technology and economic strength. The demand for CNC technology and equipment in aerospace manufacturing is very clear and urgent. The quantity, performance, accuracy, processing capacity, and application level of CNC machine tools are of great significance to the aerospace industry. CNC machining aerospace, why use CNC machining and manufacturing? What are the characteristics of CNC aircraft parts? Let's explore these questions below.

Why is CNC important in aerospace large CNC machining?

The aviation industry has very high, even demanding requirements for product design, functionality, performance, product quality, and reliability. Large amounts of new materials and structures are first applied to aircraft components. National defense needs and market competition require shortening the development and production cycles of aerospace products.

In addition, the average cost of the final product needs to be continually reduced, which puts higher demands on the aerospace manufacturing industry and requires advanced manufacturing techniques. Modern CNC machining is a key part of advanced manufacturing technology and has become a decisive key technology, especially in aerospace manufacturing. 

The following advantages of CNC manufacturing services make them very important in the aerospace industry:

  • It is a process that integrates a variety of advanced technology types, including computer technology, communication technology, modern manufacturing technology, and digital control technology, etc.

  • In the CNC machining/turning process, only the settings and parameters of the CNC machine tool need to be changed to realize the development of new products and the processing of another batch, greatly improving automation and flexibility.

  • Multiple CNC machining processes can be completed automatically on one machine or in one clamping operation, greatly shortening the processing time and production cycle, and also improving efficiency.

  • CNC machining/turning technology can improve the accuracy and precision of aerospace products, reduce or minimize manufacturing errors, and make CNC aircraft parts have higher quality and durability.

The main characteristics of CNC machining aerospace parts

  • High performance: Use new materials that are difficult to process, such as titanium;

  • Lightweight: A large number of thin-walled structures are applied;

  • Accuracy: Continuously improve processing accuracy;

  • High efficiency: Require higher speed and efficiency;

  • Reliability and economics: Increasingly stringent quality and cost control requirements.
