Some within Boeing call this part the "pork chop." Actually, it's a landing gear bulkhead for a C-17 cargo plane.
Faster, lighter cuts can let one solid part replace an assembly of hundreds of components. Better manufacturing and a better airplane both result. But before Boeing could realize these benefits, a more finely tuned process was needed. Fly an airplane fast enough,and you meet a threshold. Air can't flow out of the way anymore, so all you can do is plow through it. Accomplish this, and you have broken the sound barrier. Mill an airplane component fast enough, and you also meet a threshold. As spindle speed increases, ultimately it reaches a point where cutting edges are striking the material at a frequency identical to some resonant frequency of the machine. However, this "sweet spot" is no barrier—it's an enabler. Milling in tune with the harmonics of the machine offers a key not only to more effective manufacturing, but also a superior design. The idea has already seen practical applications. The Boeing F/A-18E/F tactical fighter is easier to manufacture, easier to assemble, even easier to maintain in the field—all thanks in part to high speed machining.

Manufacturing Intelligence: How Technology Is Transforming Skilled Labor
Rapid digitization, computers and robots are capable of performing science fiction-like tasks.
Dr. Martin Helgoson | Senior Project Leader and Principal Engineer, Sandvik Coromant
Concept cars can drive more safely than humans today. Utilizing advanced technologies, robots can perform sophisticated logistic assignments and draw intelligent conclusions. Your smartphone probably has more computing power than Apollo 11 when it landed on the moon. We are facing the beginning of a technology shift that will mean drastic changes for the industry. In the future, products, as well as devices in manufacturing processes, will have embedded intelligence; the ability to communicate and become autonomous. READ MORE
OSync is Here! Climb Aboard the Next Step in Automation from the C.R. Onsrud Team.
Real-time monitoring of machine processes is the next step in move to Industry 4.0
C.R. Onsrud is committed to making our machinery the most advanced possible, and our engineers continue to push their capabilities. As the Industry 4.0 wave catches on and more facilities begin to automate more and more of their production environments, the ability to monitor machine performance in the real-time is critical. We give you the power to "harness the source" - monitoring, tracking and logging one (or more) machines simultaneously so production managers have better control of their operations. WATCH VIDEO
