At this year’s EMO, our first exhibition as Zuse Hüller Hille, we had many interesting discussions about the aerospace sector. Aircraft components are subject to extreme internal and external forces. Because of this, they are typically made of durable, highly resistant materials like titanium and titanium alloy. Aerospace machining is therefore mostly characterized by tight tolerances and hard-to-machine metals. Also challenging are the typical forms like turbines, turbine blades and aero-structural components determining the form of an aircraft.
