Boeing is conducting a workshop to train Danish firm AlmexA in high-speed machining techniques for aluminium and titanium components used in the aerospace industry and other markets, under a technology transfer project.

The project is a part of Boeing’s industrial cooperation programme for Denmark’s new combat aircraft competition in which the Super Hornet strike fighter is a finalist.

The four-day workshop includes classroom training in high-speed machining theory and practical demonstrations of tools used to optimise the machining operation for improved production efficiency, reduced cost and increased quality.

AlmexA expects to be improve efficiency in machine time by 10% and reduce machine run time by 30% once the new production techniques have been fully implemented.

AlmexA managing director Bjarne Caspersen said that as a small business in a global market, it is incredibly valuable to be able to work with a world-class company such as Boeing.

“The training and know-how provided this week will help our team better take advantage of growth opportunities in new fields and markets,” he said.
