Airplane Aluminium Door Handle Machining on Starrag STC 1000

Turnkey engineering project on Starrag STC 5-axis horizontal machining to machine the Airbus A320 / A321 "Aluminium Door Handle", machined from oversize forging in 3 set-ups. The technical challenge was to design a machining process that overcame the extreme distortion caused by internal stresses of the forging during machining whilst maintaining the extremely critical hole position tolerances less 20 microns and web thickness tolerances 30 microns.
