YG-1’s Aerospace Tools Provide High Metal Removal Rates
Westec 2019: YG-1’s Aerospace tools include four-, five- and six-flute Titanox and V7plus A end mills for titanium.
YG-1 will feature cutting tools aimed at high metal removal rates in titanium, steel alloys, stainless steels (including 17-4PH, 15-5PH and 300/400), aluminum and carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) in aerospace applications.
The Aerospace Solutions offering includes
Optimizing a camshaft lobe grinding cycle has traditionally been based less on science and more on educated guesswork and numerous test grinds. Now, computer thermal modeling software can predict areas where lobe burning is likely to occur, in order to determine the fastest possible work speed that won't thermally damage lobes and greatly reduce the number of requisite test grinds.
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
Achieving acceptable tool life and hole quality in a material such as CFRP demands a drill designed with composites in mind.
