Kanfit Adds 5-Axis CNC Machining for Aerospace Parts

Israeli company Kanfit has completed the installation of a 5-axis CNC machining centre for the production of aerospace composite parts and tools.

The company says that the new machining centre from Belotti, which has a work surface area 5 m in length and 2.6 m wide, will enable it to respond more effectively to customer demands for larger, more complex aerospace parts.

“Five-axis machining enables us to increase our independence as a full turnkey solution provider," says Shai Fine, General Manager of Kanfit. "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.”

Kanfit recently added autoclave and 3D additive manufacturing, and is currently developing other technologies, including automated fibre placement (AFP) and robotic filament winding of closed frames to its manufacturing processes.
