Trimming and milling of core materials is often a difficult and extremely dusty operation that leaves ragged edges and torn cells. To achieve the precision and cut quality demanded by aerospace applications, without dust, PaR uses ultrasonic cutting technology. PaR’s ultrasonic cutting systems use both straight knives and rotating discs to cleanly trim aerospace honeycomb core materials. Whether phenolic, Kevlar, or aluminum core, these machines provide the optimal solution, without dust. To enhance productivity, the machines can also cut prepreg, enabling all of your cutting operations in a single station.
PaR’s LM Series Precision Motion Platform provide the base motion system for the integrated ultrasonic cutting process. The linear motors of the LM Series provides the high speed and high acceleration that the process demands. Additional, a spindle head can be automatically exchanged for the ultrasonic head to provide drilling and secondary milling processes if required.
