Starrag Group company SIP is currently assembling a series of high-precision jig boring machines destined for installation by multiple customers active in the aerospace industry.

The five machines – comprising a four-axis horizontal model and the remainder of three-/five-axis vertical designs – are scheduled for installation and commissioning during the second half of 2021.

These SIP machines will produce a range of workpieces, including gearboxes, structural components and satellite guidance systems. The quartet of vertical machines under construction will be able to accommodate workpieces weighing ranging from 2500 to 4000 kg, and have clamping surfaces from 1200 x 900 mm to 1700 x 1200 mm. The horizontal machine will handle components weighing up to 4000 kg on a clamping surface of 1200 x 1200 mm.
