Titanium

SECTOR: Aerospace

Summary: with a customer portfolio that includes Boeing, Airbus, BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, Sikorsky and Bombardier, it is unsurprising that Danobat is the leading supplier of specialty metals to the aerospace industry providing solutions for cutting titanium plates.

Provided Solution: specially designed to efficiently cut the most difficult materials such as titanium, the DANOBAT Vertical Plate Saw is equipped with an automatic gripper system to position the plate to be cut to the desired width, whilst the fully automated CNC control allows the operator to enter a batch to process an entire plate in an automatic cycle.

As commented by a senior manufacturing engineer: “We are very pleased with the performance of the DANOBAT system. It has significantly increased our capacity since we took delivery just over 6 months ago and it completely eliminated our backlog within the first 3 months of use, which has of course had a hugely beneficial impact on our delivery schedules.” "Additionally we reduce the cost of the consumables by up to one third.”

On the existing machine we used carbide blades, now with DANOBAT´s bimetal blades, the cutting rates and blade life are hugely improved.
