Stiles Machinery Inc. (Grand Rapids, Michigan) and Belotti SpA (Bergamo, Italy) are featuring their latest generation 5-axis machining centers for creating complex, three-dimensional components from composites, plastics and metal. The Belotti 5-axis TRIM is designed to trim complex shapes from a range of composite materials with reportedly excellent accuracy and quality. Production efficiency is enhanced with a work area that allows easy access to the fixture holding the workpiece. The system’s automated rotary tables and parallel loaders enable a quick and easy tooling change to eliminate down time and maintain work flow.

  • More and more composites blowing in the wind

    Wind energy is putting the uncertainty that was the hallmark of this industry in the rearview mirror. Electricity from this renewable resource is cheaper and more competitive than it's ever been — and getting more so. This massive consumer of composite materials has a bright future.

  • Composites 101: Fibers and resins

    Compared to legacy materials like steel, aluminum, iron and titanium, composites are still coming of age, and only just now are being better understood by design and manufacturing engineers. However, composites’ physical properties — combined with unbeatable light weight — make them undeniably attractive. 

  • Preforming goes industrial: Part 1

    ATL and AFP-based preforming options now abound for processing dry and/or impregnated reinforcements as quickly as 1 minute or less with potential yearly part yields in the millions.
