IMTS 2022 Conference: Titanium Machining on a Grand Scale

Learn about titanium machining.

About the presentation
Titanium has always placed demands on tools and machines during the cutting process. In recent years, titanium 3.7165 became prevalent among lightweight materials as a material with outstanding properties, especially in the aviation, space, and medical industries. This alloy, normally referred to as Ti6Al4V, shows a very good combination of strength, corrosion resistance, and capacity to withstand stresses. Although this material has good empirical values and cutting data, processing it remains one of the supreme disciplines in machining. WFL pays attention to implementing customer requirements so they become an integrative part of the overall concept. For example, it’s possible to respond to the requirements of customer projects through a special design for guides and spindles and to adapt the machine components to the respective loads. The topic of cooling is especially important where titanium machining is concerned. As titanium burns at temperatures above 880°C, appropriate fire and explosion protection must be ensured. An additional factor is that it’s  also possible to measure the workpieces inside the machine when work is in progress on the WFL
complete machining centers.
