Cutting Tools for Aerospace Manufacturing

The smallest details in automation equal a big difference over time. For large scale aerospace projects, your bottom line as well as the quality of your end product can be deeply affected by how effective your manufacturing process is. HEULE tools have been created with manufacturing engineers to combine operations, optimize processes, and produce higher quality parts. Our goal is to make the small details equal big differences. 

Aerospace Case Studies

"The BSF tool performed so well that I have now cut out the other five axis roughing, saving us three operations in total and 15 minutes in cycle time."
