Liebherr-Aerospace puts new titanium machining center into operation
At its facility in Lindenberg (Germany), Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH recently put into operation a new 260 m² center for machining titanium parts – among others, hydraulic valve blocks for the electric back-up hydraulic actuator (EBHA) of the A380 program. In the future, components for new aircraft programs will also be produced there. The machining center includes a shelf magazine accommodating 80 pallets and an external tool storage and distribution system for 700 tools. The investment volume totals approx. € 2.7m.
