Installed and operational in February of 2016, the Parpas Linear Diamond machining center joins the ever growing family of five axis machines at Prospect. This is the third Diamond that Prospect has acquired, but the first that is a Linear machine and will be dedicated to machining of carbon fiber parts for our aerospace customers.
The machine came equipped with a paper filtration system that pulls the carbon fiber dust from the coolant which keeps pump maintenance at a minimum. The machine also has M&H software and a five axis probe installed to allow for inspection of all machined surfaces without removal from the machine. With a table size of 110″ x 66″ and travels of 87″ x 59″ x 39″ the Diamond is the perfect machine for many of our applications.
