CMS' advanced technological capabilities have positioned it as one of the world's premier suppliers of CNC milling and machining centers to the aerospace industry: having supplied a long list of its well know companies with basic milling and machining centers for advanced materials and composite applications, as well as having supplied it unique solutions for high speed machining of heavy structural aluminum components, , patented stacked aluminum processes, advanced honeycomb cutting capabilities—the latest technology for efficient and clean composite materials drilling, milling and machining—along with patented CNC fixture holding technology for airplane wing and other swept surfaces.

Aluminum Sheet Stack Cutting
Aluminum Stacked Sheet Cutting

CMS' patented stacked aluminum machining process is a breakthrough technology, producing a myriad of different aluminum parts and eliminating the traditional stacking, drilling, riveting or screwing of the stack together followed by lots of difficult, inaccurate, handwork at the end of the machining cycle. CMS' patented stacked aluminum machining process changes everything, resulting in perfect parts taken directly from the machining center at the end of the cycle!
