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.


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.
