AVIC to install high-tech CNC technology


Chinese aviation OEM, AVIC is set to take delivery of a two-in-one computer numerical control machine capable of machining composite parts as well as cutting honeycomb ultrasonically. The five-axis hardware is being supplied by Creno, a French company specializing in high-tech machining solutions.

The machine will be installed at Jinan, on one of AVIC’s locations, a Chinese equipment manufacturer and a major player in the COMAC aircraft program. The machine will enable machining of composite parts as well as ultrasonic cutting of honeycomb. Ultrasonic cutting enables high-quality precision cutting with no deformation, is up to three-times faster than some other techniques, and the process is dust free, which improves the workspace environment and its cleanliness.
