Aerospace blisk
The Starrag site in Rorschacherberg in Switzerland is synonymous with highly productive, long-lasting machining solutions in the aircraft industry. This is what made this site the perfect choice for the Starrag Competence Center Aerospace.
Artemis trip to Mars
Aerojet Rocketdyne uses metal 3D printing technology from Velo3D to make a critical flight component lighter, smaller, and much less expensive than its predecessors.
CERATIZIT
Every cutting insert experiences a drop in performance when approaching the end of its life cycle. If this condition goes undetected for any amount of time, part-machining performance, as well as part quality, may have already suffered.
Drag finishing polishes targeted surface areas on hip stems
Experience lower costs, improved quality and absolutely consistent finishing results with drag finisher technology.
Photo-chemical etching microfluidic plates for fuels cells, heat exchangers and cooling plates
Plate heat exchangers are found in numerous industrial applications, and essentially use metal plates to transfer heat between two fluids. Their use is burgeoning as they out-perform conventional heat exchangers (often a coiled pipe containing one fluid that passes through a chamber containing another fluid) as the fluids being cooled are in contact with a much greater surface area, which optimizes the transfer of heat and greatly increases the speed of temperature change.

A VDW study calculates above-average growth in global investment up to 2040.
Good chip formation.
Whether examining how tool selection impacts chips, how coolant plays a role in chip evacuation or looking at the size and shape of chips, chip formation says a lot about the application being run.
Rosler wire mesh belt blast machine.
Producing highly accurate parts for e-vehicles requires exacting deburring equipment. One German manufacturer turned to shot blast equipment to meet required specifications.
Panafab
Since 1986, the Bestway Products Company has manufactured a full line of saw blades that enable tight, intricate cuts that have helped Panafab create products cost effectively.
Halycon
