Innovative drilling machines for Aerospace industry
REEL AEI’s vibration assisted electric drilling machines deliver very fast and versatile drilling operations for metal and composite materials.
The systems detect automatically the different layers of multi-layered materials and adapt in real-time their cutting parameters accordingly. The vibration assistance allows to fragment the chips for an optimal drilling quality and for an enhanced durability of the cutting tools.
This technology allows massive cost savings and strong efficiency benefits with operations performed up to 10 times faster than with existing technologies. This solutions can also be implemented on robots in fully automated production lines.
Drilling is a key component of aerospace manufacturing and thus a key driver for productivity.
