Starrag Group receives large order in the US

Starrag Group has been awarded a large order in the double-digit million range from Orizon Aerostructure, a highly specialized top-tier supplier to the aerospace industry. This order marks a significant breakthrough in the strategically important US Aerospace segment. The Ecospeed-series machines ordered by the customer offer the highest performance available in the market today. They will be connected to form a flexible manufacturing system and allow the customer to manufacture aluminum aircraft structures at a much lower cost than is possible using conventional fabrication methods.

The order consists of six Ecospeed F2060 machines that will be connected to form a flexible manufacturing system as well as two part-loading/unloading stations, a transport system, and nine pallet buffer stations for the placement of parts. The system will feature the latest Starrag integrated production system software, which, among other advantages, will ensure connectivity between all components of the manufacturing system and facilitate preventive maintenance, true to the spirit of Industry 4.0.

Thanks in particular to their patented Sprint Z3 parallel kinematic milling heads, Ecospeed machines have become a solution of choice for high dynamic, simultaneous 5-axis machining of complex, aluminum structural parts. They are capable of turning a four ton aluminum billet into a complex, high-precision structural part weighing 100 kilograms in less than 24 hours, which represents a 70% reduction in machining time. The ordered system was engineered in close collaboration with the customer right from the start, in keeping with Starrag Group's stated mission of delivering exactly what customers want in terms of profitability, safety and growth.

Installation of the new system will begin in early 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by the end of the same year. Starrag will actively support the customer throughout this period 2/3 and beyond with its extensive engineering and application know-how and onsite customer services.
