Learn About New Methods to Machine New Aerospace Materials at imX 2011 Booth 2500

[FRANKLIN LAKES, NJ – June 2011] Visitors to the inaugural imX trade show will take away a greater comprehension of the requirements to machine new aerospace engine and structural components in Mitsui Seiki’s imX booth 2500. “There is a tremendous amount of work coming down the pike to the aerospace supply chain, driven by new fuel-efficient jet designs,” says Scott Walker, President of Mitsui Seiki USA, Inc. “The challenge is 95 percent of these high nickel superalloys and hybrid composite material parts cannot be machined with conventional CNC machining centers. We have been working in conjunction with the major aerospace OEMs for the last several years to develop the manufacturing equipment to process these new parts. At imX we will convey the latest information and technology available to machine these components.”

imX, a unique, by-invitation-only event, will be held in Las Vegas, September 12 – 14, 2011. In keeping with the theme of imX, which is to create a learning environment, Mitsui Seiki plans to engage its customers and prospects with guest speakers from the aero industry, host interactive workshops, present dynamic audio/visuals, and foster casual conversation in its booth. “I sincerely hope that current aerospace suppliers or those who want to explore this soon-to-be-booming market, will visit our booth and exchange ideas and information with us. The aerospace OEMs are very concerned that there isn’t enough manufacturing capacity to handle all the work that’s coming. Contract shops need the facts. We welcome the opportunity to provide them at imX.”
