Machining Metrology

Tribosonics is currently developing an adaptive machine control system for the Aerospace and Nuclear Industries. Integrating ultrasonic thickness technology into manufacturing systems. The advancements in manufacturing techniques have increased the efficiency and reduced costs in the manufacturing process.  In high stress environments such as those found in the aerospace and nuclear industry very complex, precision components are manufactured form single material blocks. Such processes increase the materials properties but increase manufacture times. Current methods for checking manufactured parts require the machining process to be stopped, using coordinate measurement machines and other similar techniques to determine whether the part has been accurately machined. While many component geometries don’t allow for conventional methods to be used. Tribosonics have developed a process for monitoring the manufacturing of a component during the machining process, allowing the cutting tool to constantly correct itself saving time and cost.
