5ME and Doosan Machine Tools America have partnered to showcase the advantages of cryogenic machining, including faster processing, longer tool life, increased part quality and lower environmental impact. As a result of a partnership agreement, 5ME says, Doosan will offer 5ME’s cryogenic machining technology as an option on a variety of its machine tool platforms.

“Cryogenic machining is particularly suited to the processing of tough materials like, titanium, diesel and compacted graphite irons, hardened/stainless/alloy steels and ceramic matrix composites,” says Mike Judge, executive vice president of 5ME.

5ME’s cryogenic machining process is said to enable higher metal removal rates and longer tool life by delivering liquid nitrogen at 321°F through the spindle/turret, cutter body or cutting tool directly to the cutting edge. This environmentally-friendly machining technology increases throughput, part quality, tool life and profitability while eliminating cutting fluids and reducing energy consumption.

In the fourth quarter of 2017, Doosan will sponsor an open house at 5ME’s Cryogenic Machining Technology Center in Warren, Michigan, during which a NHP6300 four-axis HMC equipped with 5ME cryogenics will be cutting a variety of tough-to-machine materials commonly used throughout the aerospace, automotive, construction, die/mold and energy industries.

  • Taking The Fear Out Of Hard Turning

    To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.
