Tool-Related Considerations for More Efficient Machining of Titanium

The expert in our Titanium Machining Zone offers advice related to coolants and coatings.


The 400° Difference

Cryogenic machining achieves dramatic tool life gains not by flooding the cut, but by refrigerating the tool.


The Online Optimizer

Coming soon: The Machine Tool Genome Project promises to let almost any machine shop use its machining centers more productively. Shops will benefit from tap-test findings without personally tapping any of their own machines or tools.


Let the Tool Path Help the Tool

A cutting tool supplier works in CAM software to create processes that extend tool life and improve performance.


Tool Line Complements Titanium, Stainless Techniques

A notable trend over the past five years or so has been the evolution of techniques for machining hard, difficult-to-cut materials, particularly titanium and stainless steel.


The Many Ways Ford Benefits from MQL

Clean machining using minimum quantity lubrication has allowed Ford’s Van Dyke transmission plant to become fundamentally more efficient and effective at manufacturing six-speed automatic transmissions.


Consider a Systems Approach to Tooling

How parts are processed is the key to reducing cycle times, especially when using Swiss-type and turn-mill machines.


Software/Tooling Partnership Promises Easier HSM

High-efficiency parameters are calculated automatically—partly using a slider that lets the programmer set the level of aggressiveness.


Composites Machining for the F-35

Lockheed Martin’s precision machining of composite skin sections for the F-35 provides part of the reason why this plane saves money for U.S. taxpayers. That machining makes the plane compelling in ways that have led other countries to take up some ...


What is the Best Process for Machining a Small, Precise Hole in Aluminum?

This small hole is actually large enough that any of three different processes might be used.
