Reaching new heights: Flexible manufacturing system represents a productivity leap for aircraft manufacturers
Pilatus Aircraft factories have re-established the machining of large components: Since October 2016, medium-sized aluminium structural components with a length of between 750 and 4,000 mm are being machined in a highly-automated manner by a Starrag Group flexible manufacturing system (FMS) including two ECOSPEED F machining centres. Production capacity has been increased by about a third.
Starrag Group delivered the anticipated significant increase in order intake for the 2018 fiscal year. New orders surged 32% (+29% at constant exchange rates) to CHF 461 million, which represents the second-highest annual order intake in the company's history, and order intake in the second half even topped the already strong first-half intake.

The best machining solution for blisks manufacturing with higher productivity
No matter if it is called a «Blisk» (bladed disk) or an «IBR» (integrally bladed rotor), no matter if it is single stage or multi stage, Starrag’s dedicated machine concept of the NB series provides the best solution for efficiently machining these parts. Blisks made from Titanium, Nickel-based superalloys and the Blisks made of blade steels for stationary gas turbines triggered the development of the NB series. For all the necessary manufacturing operations Starrag provides the benchmark: Efficient roughing for Blisks machined from solid, adaptive machining for friction welded Blisks, high dynamic finishing of the airfoils in point contact. Shortest cycle times and zero scrap rate production are achievable on the Starrag NB series. The NB series is based on the very successful Starrag LX series.
Starrag Group is a global technology leader in manufacturing high-precision machine tools for milling, turning, boring and grinding workpieces of metallic, composite and ceramic materials. Principle customers are internationally active companies in the Aerospace, Energy, Transportation and Industrial sectors. In addition to its portfolio of machine tools, Starrag Group provides integrated technology and maintenance services that significantly enhance customer productivity.
