to attract NASCC attendees
Once again FICEP demonstrated at the recent NASCC 2017 in San Antonio, Texas why it is considered to be the innovation leader in the industry. We demonstrated the full capability of the Endeavour drilling line with its unique spindle sub axis positioning. Each spindle in the Endeavour has a fully independent sub X axis movement so it is not necessary to always position a section, as just the spindles move while the section remains stationary. This sub X axis positioning generally permits holes to be processed in all surfaces simultaneously even if the holes do not share the same X axis dimension.
Since the spindles move independently we were demonstrating the full milling capability of the Endeavour drilling line as during these milling operations the section remains rigidly clamped and just the spindle moves in three axes to perform milling.
These are the types of milling applications that were demonstrated at the recent NASCC in San Antonio.
You can be sure that at the NASCC next year in Baltimore, Maryland FICEP will again introduce another industry first!
