Thermwood (Dale, Ind.) featured its Model 77 5-axis CNC machining center for large aerospace composites applications. The M77 is specifically developed for three-dimensional machining. Its stationary table and high-wall enclosure was designed with advanced 3-D software, using finite element analysis. All major weldments are stress-relieved to provide long-term stability. Laser-calibrated to assure accurate absolute positioning and repeatability, it features full, 5-axis simultaneous motion, executes extremely large CAD-generated programs at high speed without pausing, and self-performs automatic axis-alignment verification. Available in standard 5-ft by 10-ft (1.5m by 3m) and 10-ft by 10-ft formats, the center’s table length can be increased on request in 5-ft increments to a 60-ft/18.3m maximum.
