Power Generation, Aerospace Milling Product Catalog
ATI Stellram’s catalog features indexable milling cutters and inserts specifically designed and manufactured for high-performance, difficult-to-machine materials, such as those used in turbine blades. The portfolio of Stellram milling tools is used in the aerospace, defense, power generation, oil and gas and other sectors in which common stainless steels and high-temperature alloys are common.
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
