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:
How the Technology Chain Improves Aerospace Turning
The machine-to-cutting-edge chain of technology can now be said to be complete, aided by some of the latest developments in toolholding, tool concepts and insert technology.
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.
