One of our very own, Tim Holmer, will be hosting a presentation at AeroDef on April 22, 2015 titled “Composite Drilling—In Slow Motion.” AeroDef is the aerospace industry’s most acclaimed manufacturing event, featuring the leaders in commercial and defense aerospace manufacturing.
“Composite Drilling—In Slow Motion” is an experiment using high-speed video to show the effects of several drilling geometries in a variety of structural composites. Attendees will learn about the challenges of drilling composites and the effects on hole quality. Common issues such as uncut fibers and delamination can be seen in a new perspective with the video visual aid, and tips on how best to avoid them will be explained. The information provided will help assist in proper selection of drill geometry for specific types of composites.
Tim has been providing customer support for various industries as an Applications Engineer for two and a half years. Before joining OSG, he graduated from Wright State University with a Mechanical Engineering degree.
Beyond his engineering expertise, Tim is experienced in public speaking, having presented at IMTS 2014 in Chicago, at various customers’ locations, and internally at OSG. After recently taking a more of active role in the Aerospace Industry by testing tools for new applications in our R&D Facility, Tim is ready to share his newest project with the AeroDef attendees.
Tim’s presentation will begin at 10:55AM on April 22nd in Coronado B (located on the lobby floor of the West Wing) during the Machining & Drilling of Composites session. Before or after the session, be sure to stop by OSG’s booth# 434 to check out our many drilling geometries, and more, that we have to offer.
