A Model Machine for Titanium

Researchers develop a machine tool that controls vibration to mill titanium more productively. The machine relies on guideway systems delivering stiffness that is literally infinite.


How Effective is MQL for Drilling Titanium/Aluminum Stacks?

Titanium expert Mark Larson describes how coolant properties affect the cut. MQL might work, but water-based coolant is typically best in titanium.


Tool-Related Considerations for More Efficient Machining of Titanium

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


Tips for Tapping Titanium Alloys

Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.


Special High-Temp Alloys Spark Interest in EDM

Today’s wire EDM technology preserves the surface integrity of proprietary titanium alloys and other high-temperature materials, so aerospace and medical applications using this process are booming.


The 400° Difference

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


One Way to Machine Long Titanium Parts

This horizontal machining center design not only addresses the need for larger machining capacity for long aerospace components, but it also offers impressive material removal rates for tough titanium alloys.


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.


Water Conservation in Waterjet Machining

This job shop’s water reclamation system also extends the life of waterjet machine hardware.


Titanium Calls for a Tight Hold on the Tool

Haimer’s SafeLock System provides pull-out protection for tools in high performance cutting such as the machining of titanium.
