RP Invests in Additional CNC Capacity

RP Aero Systems have recently commissioned a reconfigured Pattern Shop with the addition of a new Belotti 5-Axis machining centre to complement the two existing 3-axis machines.

With an operating envelope of 2600mm x 1700mm x 1000mm and capable of machining all composite materials and light alloys, this investment will allow RP to better control all aspects of product development from design through to installation and beyond.
A Siemens controller, an 18 station tool changer, and an integrated high powered continuous rated extraction system will allow for unattended running.
Further investment in Delcam PowerMill and PowerShape CADCAM software complements the existing Delcam PowerInspect CMM inspection facilities.
