Axle Beam

Axle beams are one of the most significant components of the landing gear systems. Due to their large size – up to 25 feet – they are often slow to machine with long cycle times. DIAEDGE Cutting Tools are well-designed to meet these manufacturing conditions by offering solutions for complex geometries for machining titanium (Ti) and alloy steel, while reducing cycle time and improving efficiencies.
