Phoenix Technology Works houses one of the biggest CNC machines in the industry – a CMS Poseidon Moving Bridge capable of machining parts up to 65 feet long, 20 feet wide and ten feet tall without reindexing.
Phoenix’s Poseidon is certified for accuracy to within +/- .004 in., which is ideal for the exacting standards of the composite layup tools, milled patterns, molds and other tooling applications they machine for the aerospace, marine and transportation industries.
According to Vice President Dan Welch, they enjoy working with Precision Board Plus because:
“We particularly like how nicely Precision Board Plus machines, including the fact that it does not chip out. The guys in the shop like the small cell size, which has cut our finishing time in half.”
Phoenix has extensive experience with Precision Board, having machined every density from PBLT-4 to PBLT-40. According to Welch, they prefer to bond all their substructures to a rigid frame. “We rough to 0.100 of the finish, semi-finish to 0.040, and then run a finish pass at net.”
Phoenix Technology Works is located in Phoenix, AZ and has the engineering horsepower to “clean sheet plan” your next project, or they can take your current files and perform an FEA or CFD study. Check out their website at phoenixtechnologyworks.com.
