New Advances in Titanium Milling

October 12, 2006

The keys to efficiently machining titanium are increasing metal removing rates while increasing tool life. New machine tool and tooling technologies allow manufacturers to achieve dramatically improved titanium milling, lowering the cost per part. Makino reviews examples of test cuts showing the advantages derived from recent advancements in machine tool technology, such as the a81 Horizontal Machining Center. Through these examples. Mark Rentschler of Makino illustrates significant improvements in the metal removal rates, tool life and cost per part in a titanium landing gear component being machined.
