Constant-Chip-Load Machining Yields a Better Tool Path
With its in-house R&D program, this aerospace shop seeks to be a leader, not a follower, on the path to innovation in advanced manufacturing. Finding and embracing a better way to generate tool paths for highly efficient and economical metal removal...
The Benefits of Horizontal Turning on a Mill-Turn Machine
A mill-turn machine that can rotate a large, bell-shaped workpiece in a horizontal orientation enabled this manufacturer to hit tight tolerance and cost targets. Minimizing non-value-added time and running lights out were also essential for success.
A Practical Approach to Milling Titanium
When the right cutting tool, toolholder, cutter paths and machining parameters are applied intelligently, a shop may have more capability to mill titanium effectively than it recognizes.
Eliminating Tool Pullout in Titanium Milling
Toolholder employs a secondary locking system to counter the high axial cutting forces encountered during the development of a tool for high-metal-removal-rate milling of titanium.
10 Tips for Titanium
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
Why Not Start With Waterjet?
In titanium, significant savings and process efficiency can result from the simple fact that abrasive waterjet cutting leaves the remaining stock intact.
The Big Step Up
A small shop added two new machines, each of which is more advanced than any of the previous machine tools the company has used. One of the co-owners committed to the work of bringing both of these machines fully into service. Here is the shop’s exp...
Savings from Sustainability
A project aimed at energy-efficient machining delivered production efficiencies, too.
Consistency Is Key to Titanium
An important part of this shop’s successful approach to titanium machining is a toolpath strategy that keeps the load on the cutter constant. Another important element is the way this shop captures and reapplies what it learns about how effective it...
Considerations for Machining Exotics
In manufacturing, the term “exotic” is used to describe materials that display excellent wear characteristics, durability and service life in high heat, extreme cold or corrosive environments.
