Dynamic NC gets ahead of the game
07 January 2019
Dynamic NC, a Rose Hill, Kansas-based company being driven by its ability to machine the hard metals used in the aerospace industry, has recently expanded to a 63,000ft2 facility. The facility will specialize in high-temperature alloy and aluminum machining for complex aerospace parts.
The decision to move to the new location was made to accommodate the company’s high product demand as the aerospace industry shifted to hard metal components. Aluminum was the most prevalent material in aircraft manufacturing for years, however, machines made to cut aluminum are made for speed and lack the power needed for high-temperature alloys.
After receiving an order to machine hard materials, Dynamic NC began a search process to find equipment that was:
• Affordable without compromising on power
• Could accommodate titanium and stainless steel
• Reliable; available service, parts
• Available to ship and install with little production downtime
Dynamic NC got ahead of the game and selected equipment from Toyoda Machinery, which offer reliability, dependability, service, performance, while maintaining low product cost. Dynamic NC was the first company to install the Toyoda UA2090Ti, designed for high-temp alloys such as titanium and stainless steel.
“We were looking at different options for a significant hard metal package that we were awarded,” said Brian Mackey, vice president of Dynamic NC. “We wanted a mix of capability and affordability and went with the UA2090Ti because it fulfilled all of our requirements.”
Toyoda UA series multi-axis vertical machining centers (VMCs) offer precise, rigid 5-axis machining. High-speed simultaneous 5-axis capabilities with backlash elimination on the articulating head support high-precision machining. An 8,000rpm high-torque Big Plus #50 taper spindle and an 84" x 35" table provide power and flexibility.
