CNC, CAM and CMM Competence
Takumi has extensive expertise in the manufacture and assembly of low to medium volume precision components. This competence has particular relevance to the Aerospace sector.
Taking full advantage of our multi-axis CNC competence as well as our industry leading CAM and CMM expertise Takumi has entered into significant contracts in the aerospace industry.
The product portfolio is currently concentrated on aluminum wing and fuselage components. The nature of these parts is well known across the aerospace industry and covers Butt-Straps, Shear Ties, Rib Posts and Splices, as well as a wide variety of brackets.
These parts present difficult 3D geometries, many have challenging thin walled (1.5mm) designs, in line with the industry wide move towards lighter structures and greater fuel efficiency.
The components have been programmed and proven out successfully in Takumi under extremely tight timelines. While most of the current batch is Aluminum, Takumi has a wide experience manufacturing components in plastic, titanium, stainless steel, Inconel alloy and other exotic materials.
In all Takumi has 12, four & five axis machining centres, as well as seven CNC lathes. Programming is carried out on the latest version of InventorCAM. This software package has proved to be extremely proficient, particularly for 5 axis work, and is very intuitive and user friendly. Takumi also possess Mastercam X6 and CATIA V5-6 R2012 and can accept models in all common industry standards including CATIA, IJES and STEP.
We have 6 CAM Engineers, working across 2 shifts, giving us the capacity to complete 20-30 new components per week, depending on part complexity.
Employing best practice methodologies in inspection and review Takumi has 3 Mitutoyo CMM machines, with GEOPAK V3.3, as well as ENOVIA DMU Navigator & 3DVIA Composer.
All inspection at Takumi is tailored towards model based inspection, in line with industry moves in this direction.
The business is driven by a fully integrated ERP system called M1. This ensures that all ordering, processing, reporting and planning related to a job is all drawn from the bill of materials, with material traceability and capacity planning well managed throughout.
