Kanfit Ltd., a leading manufacturer of aerospace-grade parts and assemblies manufactured from composite and metal materials, has successfully completed installation of its new 5-axis CNC machining center for the production of composite parts and tools and has begun operation.
The new machining center from Belotti SpA has a work surface area of 5 m (l) x 2.6 m (w) x 1.3 m (h), will enable the company to respond more effectively to the increasing demands of its customers for larger, more complex aerospace parts.
“The addition of a 5-axis machining center at Kanfit is in sync with the company’s strategy to deliver reliable, top quality services and products”, says Shai Fine, General Manager of Kanfit. “Five-axis machining enables us to increase our independence as a full turnkey solution provider. It eliminates the need to send these parts out to a subcontractor, thereby reducing costs, production and delivery time, and unnecessary risks that can lead to damage during transport to an outside subcontractor. These savings will be passed on to our customers”.
