Coolant delivery, spindle connection and dynamic response all are part of a tooling formula for milling this metal productively.
Initiate a dialogue with some of the industry's most respected experts. Ask Mark Larson a question related to titanium machining.
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.
Through-tool liquid nitrogen turns the tool into a heat sink, extending tool life.
The thin walls and deep pockets common to structural aerospace parts make machining challenging. A recent event at Makino’s U.S. headquarters highlighted solutions for effectively machining such tricky aluminum and titanium components.
This really cool video shows slow motion footage of the interesting properties of Prince Rupert's Drop. I see some correlation to work hardening in metalworking operations.
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 experience so far.
A project aimed at energy-efficient machining delivered production efficiencies, too.
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 can be in this metal.
