Celeritive Technologies Signs Agreement with Spirit AeroSystems.
CAVE CREEK, AZ, May. 30th, 2012– Celeritive Technologies, Inc., developers of VoluMill™ – The Pathway to Competitive Manufacturing through Ultra High-Performance Toolpath Innovations, announced today that it has signed an agreement with Spirit AeroSystems (NYSE: SPR), headquartered in Wichita, Kansas for the use of Celeritive’s VoluMill technology.
VoluMill’s patent-pending technology generates toolpaths that produce a consistent material removal rate. Their smooth, flowing motion establishes and maintains ideal milling conditions in any part shape. Reduced forces on the spindle and cutting tool enable machining hardware to be safely utilized to its full capabilities. Uniform chip formation and excellent heat dissipation result in the previously unachievable combination of dramatically reduced cycle times and significantly extended cutting-tool life.
“This opportunity to work with Spirit AeroSystems, one of the world’s largest non-OEM designer and manufacturer of aerostructures, is without doubt an important milestone demonstrating our continued growth and commitment to the manufacturing industry,” says Terry Sorensen, CEO for Celeritive.
