Despite its advantages to component designers, titanium is notoriously difficult to form and machine. And, the difficulties presented in machining the material itself also negatively impact tool life.

Taking on Titanium

Titanium brings critical advantages to engineering and manufacturing, so addressing the problems it presents to machining is a priority for machine shops Dealing with design preferences Minimizing stickiness during cutting New alloys, matrices

The demand for extra hard materials in highly engineered components and systems like aerospace, energy, and medical and surgical devices continues to grow steadily. Already firmly established in those high-tech and precision engineering sectors, the use of titanium and its alloys is becoming widespread now. Light, strong and offering excellent corrosion resistance, these materials are increasingly preferred as replacement options for high-nickel alloys. This adoption is not without chal
