Soosung Airframe Selects Modig Rigimill

Soosung Airframe has selected Modig’s RigiMill for its manufacturing needs, notably for wing stringers. “Finally, there is a machine optimized for wing-top-panel for the Airbus A320” said Soosung’s Managing Director Mr. Joon Woo Cho. “With 40% faster production per part, Modig’s high speed solution is just what we need.” Soosung Airframe, headquartered in South Korea since 1985, supplies aero structures for commercial, military and business jets to the world’s leading aerospace companies.

Modig President David Modig said “We overcame fierce competition from multi-spindle machine manufacturers. The 150kw spindle RigiMill will be customized for Soosung’s needs. For aluminum, we fit high a high speed spindle together with a machine structure that is designed for speed and rigidity. The automatic pallet changer handles material in excess of 52 feet.”

David Waldron, President of Modig’s US operations, commented “The RigiMill is an exciting and disruptive technology that generates a tremendous return on investment for our customers, especially when coupled with an integrated pallet system for loading raw materials and unloading finished product. We are happy to run time studies for our customers to demonstrate the strong value-add delivered by the RigiMill.”

Founded in 1948, Modig has continuously enhanced its reputation through its HHV extrusion mill and six-axis FlexiMill prior to the game changing RigiMill, another revolutionary product from Modig.
