When working with lubrication-assisted drilling and milling, we have found that the process still has room for improvement. Therefore, we have developed our own lubrication system for these processes, which not only keeps the components oil-free, but also achieves better process quality, has shorter process times, extends tool life and ensures high reliability. With internal lubrication even for tools with small diameter cooling channels and optional upgrades for external lubrication, various materials such as CFRP and titanium can be precisely finished. With this technology, we minimize process times by up to 30% while doubling the number of holes during the drilling process. With aerosol dry lubrication, we also achieve a 20% reduction in drill wear for an even more efficient factory of the future and smart and efficient processes.
Broetje-Automation GmbH has delivered its highly innovative STAXX One Automated Fiber Placement Robot to the Composite Technology Center / CTC GmbH (An Airbus Company) in Stade, Germany. This advanced and automated fiber deposition system will be used in conjunction with the CTC and Airbus teams to create ecologically efficient and innovative composite structures, in support of a more sustainable future of mobility.
The vertical integration of future-oriented technologies and sustainable interconnections in the Factory of the Future are the topics of the “Vertical E2E” research project led by Premium AEROTEC, which was launched in 2022. The first results have now been presented on 25.01.2023 at the Technology Day in the Varel Technology Centre.
