Manufacturing Aerospace Components with the UNIKA

on 24th July 2019

Gruppo Parpas are a major manufacturer of medium to large range of sophisticated quality machine tools and a supplier of gantry mills, horizontal boring machines, bed-type mills and 5-axis machines, many using linear drive technology to achieve high speeds. Their goal is to manufacture high quality machine tools for aerospace manufacturers that require high quality and accurate machining.

The UNIKA is a high-speed milling centre with a movable column. This machine has an impressive feed rate of 60 M/min and the linear axes are water cooled to provide a constant temperature-controlled machine structure for producing high precision parts. The working area can be equipped an index table, tailstock and automatic fixtures to provide total flexibility for various work holding applications. This machine is perfect for the aerospace industry and Gruppo Parpas has many successful installations within this and other industries where a high degree of accuracy and complexity are required.

Gruppo Parpas have announced their presence at this year’s EMO exhibition. They’ll be exhibiting impressive high quality, high precision machine tools perfect for aerospace, power generation, automotive, die & mould and general engineering sectors. They’ll be exhibiting the SPEEDLINER, UNIKA BLADE and ROLLER MEGA. Firstly, the SPEEDLINER gantry mill has 3, 4 or 5 axes for high speed machining, full contouring capability and features a monobloc structure with a gantry-type moving carrier and a stationary workpiece. The UNIKA is available with a selection of rotary or trunnion tables, indexers and spindle heads. This high precision machine is perfect for the blading and blisks industries, offering high speed milling and high accuracy achieved through the use of permanent magnet linear motors. The Roller XL, a portal milling centre, is a larger derivative of the standard 5-axis model, providing the same high accuracy and machining capability, but for larger components.
