Four MAG Cincinnati Ti Profilers ordered by VSMPO-Avisma, Russian JV partner to Boeing

VSMPO-Avisma, the world's largest titanium producer, has ordered four three-spindle MAG Cincinnati Ti (titanium) profilers for its plant in Verkhnaya Salda, Russia. The three-spindle machines will produce a variety of parts, including large landing gear components, for Airbus and Boeing aircraft.  

The new order of four machines follows a 2006 order from Ural Boeing Manufacturing (UBM) for six five-spindle titanium profilers. UBM is a joint venture between Boeing and VSMPO-Avisma, with a new 8,900 square-meter plant in the same city. UBM uses the machines for roughing of large titanium components for Boeing. This reduces shipping costs and increases manufacturing efficiency by keeping initial metalcutting steps near the metal production and forging operation.   

"The local metalcutting strategy facilitates recycling of chips to the source, and allows the most efficient use of higher-level machining capabilities at Boeing's Portland plant and its subcontractors," said Chip Storie, MAG Cincinnati Vice President and General Manager, Advanced Systems. MAG Cincinnati will also provide installation and support services through April 2009.            

According to Storie, the new MAG Russia office and its president, Sergey Gerasimov, were instrumental in obtaining the order. MAG Russia, established in 2007, provides local sales and service for the area's emerging aerospace market, driven by companies such as VSMPO-Avisma. MAG Maintenance Technologies, a sister organization to MAG Cincinnati within MAG Industrial Automation Systems, is providing process optimization services and proprietary tooling for the profilers.            

The four latest machines will be configured as two profilers each on two individual rail sets, each 30 m (96 ft) long.  The machines will be specially equipped to optimize titanium cutting with high-pressure 55-BAR (800 PSI) coolant, high-volume 340 LPM (90 GPM) external coolant, side conveyors and cross conveyors. The machines will begin shipping in late 2008 and early 2009.            

The six titanium profilers ordered in 2006 are configured as two five-spindle gantries, each on three rail sets, 44 m (144 ft) long, with side and cross conveyors. Delivery of these machines will be completed this year.  

"Our Ti profilers have proven to be an excellent solution to the dramatic increase in demand for titanium processing equipment across the globe," said Storie. "Highly-reliable, well-built equipment, together with unmatched processing experience is the winning combination that top performing manufacturers are looking for."
