Deckel-Maho DMF-360

The impact of Deckel Maho technology on aerospace component production

The state-of-the-art in aerospace component manufacturing is constantly evolving. And in this dynamic landscape, DMG – Mori’s Deckel Maho technology is considered one of the most prominent in the industry.

In this article, we dive into the world of precision machining to discover how this technology, used by industry leaders such as Precision Manufacturing Aerospace (PMA), is redefining standards of quality and efficiency.


Key features of Deckel Maho technology

Before delving into its features, it is important to understand what Deckel Maho is. This technology refers to an advanced CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining system that is widely used in the manufacture of aerospace components.

In addition, this technology is noted for its ability to perform high-precision and complex work on a variety of materials. Some of its features are:

  • Extreme precision: ability to work to very tight tolerances, essential in the aerospace industry.
  • Material versatility: ability to machine a wide range of materials, from light alloys to hard metals.
  • Advanced CNC control: Computerized numerical control systems enable complex and precise machining operations.
  • High machining speed: production efficiency without sacrificing quality, crucial for meeting deadlines on aerospace projects.

What are its uses in the aerospace industry?

One of its main uses is in the production of aircraft structural parts such as brackets and fuselage panels, where high precision and strength are required. It is also key in the creation of complex aircraft engine components, such as fan blades and combustion chamber parts, which must withstand extreme conditions.

The technology is also vital for manufacturing precise components for fuel and hydraulic systems, and robust parts for landing gear. It also includes the production of housings and assemblies for electronic systems, where accuracy is crucial.

Finally, it also facilitates the development of prototypes and custom parts for special projects, offering flexible, high-precision solutions for the unique needs of the aerospace industry.

How is it different from other technologies?

The main difference is its advanced integration of precision, flexibility and speed. While other technologies may specialize in one or two of these aspects, Deckel Maho combines them all, offering a comprehensive solution for highly complex machining.

This versatility is especially valuable in aerospace, where production requirements vary widely and demand the latest in machining technology.

Deckel Maho technology at PMA

PMA uses two specific machines: the Deckel Maho DMU-160 and DMF-360, both renowned for their efficiency and precision.

The DMU-160 is known for its versatility and ability to work with parts of various sizes and complexities, ideal for the production of structural components and engine parts.

On the other hand, the DMF-360 stands out for its wide working range and high precision, especially useful for manufacturing large and complex components.

In conclusion, the integration of this technology at PMA has been a transcendental step in improving the quality and efficiency of its aerospace production processes. Contact PMA to learn more about how this cutting-edge technology can benefit your aerospace projects.
