Global Aerospace Materials Market To Reach US$10.8 Billion By 2025

Global Aerospace Materials Market To Reach US$10.8 Billion By 2025

The global aerospace materials market is projected to grow to US$10.8 billion by 2025, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6 percent. According to a new report by Global Industry Analysts Inc., growth is mainly driven by increasing demand for sophisticated military aircraft, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

Of the aerospace materials market, the aluminium alloys segment displays the potential to grow at over 7 percent and is poised to reach over US$11.2 billion by 2025.

Representing the developed world, the United States will maintain a 5.6 percent growth momentum. Within Europe, which continues to remain an important element in the global economy, Germany will add over US$380.2 million to the region’s size and clout in the next five to six years. Over US$995.6 million worth of projected demand in the region will come from other emerging Eastern European markets.

In Japan, aluminium alloys will reach a market size of US$497.2 million by the end of the forecast period. On the other hand, as the world’s second largest economy, China exhibits the potential to grow at 9.8 percent over the next couple of years and add approximately US$3 billion in terms of addressable opportunity for the picking by aspiring businesses and their astute leaders. Several macroeconomic factors and internal market forces will shape growth and development of demand patterns in emerging countries in Asia-Pacific, Latin America and the Middle East.

Casting Light On First-Stage Aluminium Machining

Casting Light On First-Stage Aluminium Machining

In order to boost the first stage roughing operation on newly cast aluminium parts for the automotive industry, Sandvik Coromant is introducing its  M5Q90 angential milling cutter. Designed to complete “cubing” (first machining of faces after casting) in a single operation without creating burrs, the new tool is fitted with PCD tangential inserts that provide a smooth and stable cutting action to lower power consumption and eliminate vibration. This concept ensures reliable performance, improved tool life, exceptional surface finish, high metal removal rate and an increased number of parts per insert.

“To enhance efficiency, our new M5Q90 tangential milling cutter features fully engineered cutter bodies matched with dedicated PCD insert geometries that feature a positive cutting angle to reduce cutting force and load on the machined component,” explained Emmanuel David, Global Automotive Product Manager at Sandvik Coromant. “The inserts, which are easy to handle and adjust, offer reduced cost per part along with high accuracy and repeatability.”, added Jacques Gasthuys, Global Automotive Application Engineer.

M5Q90 cutter bodies are designed according to customer specifications and hence meet the requirements of high-productivity machining – the tool can operate in high-speed conditions in excess of 20,000 rpm. However, all cutter bodies offer the same design of tip seat, coolant channel, lead angle and rake angle. Inserts are always kept in stock.

If desired, the cutter body tool life can be further extended in engineered solutions with PCD inserts protected by rows of carbide inserts, a configuration that also serves to increase the depth of cut capability. While the basic tool with PCD inserts offers 2-4 mm (0.079-0.157 inch) depth of cut in full engagement, this can be boosted to in excess of 4 mm (0.157 inch) using the engineered solution with protective rows of carbide inserts.

Aluminium cylinder heads and engine blocks will be among the principal components to benefit, typically at automotive foundries or Tier 1/Tier 2 suppliers. By way of example, the cubing operation on a cast cylinder head would involve machining the camshaft face, inlet/outlet face and combustion face. Typical cutting data using M5Q90 might include a speed of 2500 m/min (8202 ft/min) and feed per teeth of 0.20 mm (0.008 inch). Users also benefit from high-precision coolant channels that provide the option for either emulsion or MQL application.

The M5Q90 completes the Sandvik Coromant offer for machining aluminium automotive parts, complementing the M5B90, M5C90, M5F90, CoroMill® Century/590 and M5R90 tooling solutions.

Capable of both face and shoulder milling, the M5Q90 is also suitable for many applications in the general engineering and aerospace sectors.

Something For Everything: The Right Aluminium Saw For Every Application

Something For Everything: The Right Aluminium Saw For Every Application

Aluminium is used for a wide range of purposes in construction, including façades, blinds and window elements. But it has applications in many other areas of manufacturing as well: ships, aircraft, motor vehicles, machines and household goods. Having the correct machining tools for aluminium is imperative. By Stephanie Riegel-Stolzer, member of the board of management, Kasto Maschinenbau.

Hypertherm: XPR300 Plasma Cutting System

Hypertherm’s XPR300 is a mechanised plasma cutting system for mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium. Its new engineered system makes it easier to run with minimal operator intervention.

The system produces ISO range 2 results on thin mild steel, ISO range 3 cut quality results compared with earlier plasma technology. The system also cuts aluminium using the company’s Vented Water Injection system.

The Hypertherm Plasmatechnik system allows higher cut speeds of 300 amps and 63 kW. Consumable life has seen increases of over 40 percent compared with previous systems with 20 percent thicker piercing capability on stainless steel and 30 percent thicker on mild steel. With the system, operating costs can be reduced by over 50 percent.

Walter: M4000 Milling System

Walter: M4000 Milling System

Walter’s M4000 milling system has expanded to include the machining of non-ferrous metals such as aluminium.

It is available in three insert sizes—SD06, SD09 and SD12—and offers flexibility in terms of feed rates, depth of cut and speeds. With the new G88 geometry variant, the inserts can be used in different cutter types, which make handling easier, and reduces procurement and storage costs.

The Walter M4000 flank faces on system’s four cutting edges are provided with a wave profile, which displays the geometry of the indexable insert. The system indexable inserts have a positive basic shape with a clearance angle of 15 degrees, which results in less power required for Slot Drilling, Chamfer milling, High-Speed Milling Cutter & Shoulder mill.

THE SYSTEM INSERTS:
–Square indexable inserts: in face, shoulder, slot drill, chamfer and T-slot milling cutters
• 4 cutting edges
• Circumference-sintered design for maximum cost-efficiency
• Circumference-ground with facets (90°) for excellent component surface finishes
–Rhombic indexable inserts: Can be used in slot drill milling cutters
• 2 cutting edges
• Circumference-sintered design for maximum cost-efficiency
–Easy geometry selection thanks to specific “wave” on the flank face
–15° clearance angle
–Ground base: Improves the seating of the inserts in the mill body & reduces vibration
