Mills CNC's Doosan multi-tasking MX 2100ST machines to Aero Engine Controls

Added to MTDCNC by Mills CNC Ltd on 03 July 2013

Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of Doosan machine tools in the UK and Ireland has, over the last 2 years, supplied three new high-performance multi-axis MX 2100ST mill-turn machines to Aero Engine Controls (AEC), the Birmingham-based manufacturer of engine control equipment systems.

The machines, installed as part of an on-going turnkey project designed to improve part accuracies and reduce cycle times, are being used to machine high-precision, complex fuel metering unit parts in one-hit.

Doosan MX2100ST mill-turn machines have 8 inch/10 inch quick-change chucks and a 65mm bar working capacity. The machines are powerful and versatile and are equipped with two 22kW/5,000rpm spindles, an integrated B-axis, a Y-axis and lower turret.

Specifically catering to AEC’s manufacturing requirements the MX’s specification also included a number of optional extras -: thermal compensation for the B-axis; linear scales on the X- and Y-axes of the top milling head and the X-axis on the bottom turret; an FSE filter drum conveyor system with built in refrigeration; a 70 bar coolant pressure upgrade for the B-axis milling spindle; a Renishaw RMP600 inspection probe with Capto C6 back end; and a Renishaw NC4 laser tool breakage detector.

Said Nick Frampton, Mills CNC’s managing director:

'We are delighted that AEC has invested in Doosan mill-turn machine tools and that the turnkey solution has delivered a reliable manufacturing process and the significant productivity and performance improvements expected.'
