Turning Aerospace Alloys

The holder, the coolant delivery, the engagement with the part—all these factors affect the turning process. Here are tips for turning the hardest-to-machine metals:

CoroTurn HP Increases Productivity and Tool Life
High precision jet nozzles direct coolant at target areas in the cutting zone, which can lead to a 30% increase in surface speed or 50% increase in tool life.

ISO S Turning Geometries for HRSA and Titanium Machining
These six geometries address roughing to finish turning of heat resistant superalloys and titanium.

CAM Programming Tip: Trochoidal Turning
Trochoidal turning uses a roll-into-the-cut approach to reduce engagement on the insert, improving tool life, chip control and productivity.

Consider a Systems Approach to Tooling
A tooling strategy creating a smooth and consistent flow of parts is critical for cost reduction and productivity.
