Given the great importance of machining processes in advanced manufacturing of aeronautical components, the main research line of the CFAA is the development of high-performance machining technologies, adding multi-axis machining concepts, multitasking, precision and high-speed machining.
The centre offers the latest technology from machine tool manufacturers and industry leaders such as GMTK, DANOBAT, HERMLE, and IBARMIA. Among these machine-tools, there are two multiprocess turning machines that are oriented towards the machining of large revolution-shaped parts, such as turbine casings and disks.
