Support in selecting and validating machining equipment
Manufacturing & operating costs reductions + Resilience enhancement + 4.0
Cetim’s expertise in machining and machine-tool technology provided us with significant technical and operational support. Another advantage of this support is that we had only one single point of contact from the needs analysis stage until acceptance of the machines
With the new Ariane 6 launcher, ArianeGroup has to thoroughly overhaul its production equipment with a goal of cuting manufacturing costs in half and increasing production speeds
In particular, they needed support in choosing two items of machining equipment, selecting a supplier and supervising the production of these items of equipment until their acceptance
A global expert support (simulation, machining, composites and aeronautics specifications) all along the project to take up ramp up challenge and enure robustness
Project management assistance to choose the supplier of two vertical lathes used to produce the large-sized composite parts (technical specifications drafting, consultation of potential suppliers) and to monitore the equipment production.
- Drawing up consultation specifications
- Consultation of fifteen potential suppliers worldwide
- Creation of a 3D virtual machine for each lathe to check, via simulation, the absence of collision between the part, the tools and the cutting tools, before any machining.
