Lean from the Beginning
How would you design a new plant if you could begin today? Rolls-Royce Crosspointe is a major manufacturing site that was planned from the outset with the expectation that continuous improvement would always be part of its culture.
A Systems Approach for Successful Titanium Machining
Coolant delivery, spindle connection and dynamic response all are part of a tooling formula for milling this metal productively.
Advancing Manufacturing, Tomorrow and Today
A drilling solution improves the production of a component that is critical for correcting spinal disorders. Meanwhile, an apprenticeship program ensures that improvements like this one can continue into the future.
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.
