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.
Drilling with Modulation Delivers Pecks for Free
A system for center drilling on Swiss-types and other small lathes oscillates the drill up to 1,000 times per second. Cycle time, part quality and predictability all improve.
Taking on Titanium
The challenge for the aerospace machine shop is to produce titanium parts productively and profitably. The challenge for the machine tool builder is to help such shops meet this challenge.
Production machining has changed from large runs of parts carved out of free machining materials to smaller runs of parts from much more difficult to machine materials. Learn how to adjust to this challenge.
The Promise of "High Cube" Machining
Tool paths and a new tool design provide an alternative to high speed machining for achieving high metal removal rates in hard metals on lighter-duty machines.
Direct Metal Laser Sintering
Laser sintering is an additive process that deposited metals, such as Titanium, to create complex machinable workpiece blanks.
Where Does Diamond Make Sense In Machining Titanium?
Boeing machining experts say one application is drilling Ti-Composite stacks. PCD does well here. The group recently addressed this question submitted through our Aerospace Machining Zone.
Cutting Tool Cost Comparison Utility
Here is a calculator for measuring the actual cost of a cutting tool, once tool life and productivity are figured in.
