5-Axis Grinder for Complex Aerospace Parts

UNITED GRINDING North America offers the BLOHM PROFIMAT MC Aero, a 5-axis grinding system designed for making complex machine parts.

"Creep feed and profile grinding have the reputation of a basic 3-axis machine producing a single part feature or operation," said a company spokesperson. "Five-axis systems, long popular in the aerospace market, have adapted to more general production applications that require multiple features in various orientations, all with exacting tolerances and fine finish. The 5-axis features of the BLOHM PROFIMAT MC Aero allow combining multiple grinding applications into a single set-up, reducing handling and production costs."

The BLOHM PROFIMAT MC Aero is the third generation of the MC platform that utilizes a moving column concept to provide a large and flexible workspace inside a compact machine envelope.

"This machine, originally designed for the aerospace industry, utilizes 5-axis movements and super abrasives to deliver exacting tolerances on complex forms ground into difficult to machine material," said the spokesperson.

Since its introduction in 1999, the BLOHM PROFIMAT MC Aero has expanded to serve additional markets including energy, machinery and mold and die.
