Hot Techniques for Cutting High-Temperature Alloys

For Dale Mickelson, Yasda product manager at Methods Machine Tools Inc. (Sudbury, MA) and author of several books on hard milling, tackling heat-resistant superalloys (HRSAs) requires the perfect combination of machine, workholding, tooling, tool paths and coolant.

Cutting Strategies for Airframe Components

Machining aerospace materials is a challenging task. Not only are machining operations tightly controlled, a wide variety of workpiece materials are employed, including aluminum, titanium, and carbon-fiber reinforced plastics (CFRPs). The following is a brief guide to cutting tool options for successful machining of airframe components. All of the tools referenced are manufactured by Mitsubishi Materials.

CT Scanning Vital for Airworthy Parts

Industrial computed tomography is a cost-effective, reliable way to meet intensifying requirements for qualifying both the design of aerospace parts and the materials needed for their construction.

AM Poised to Transform Aviation MRO Industry

Big things are happening in the aviation maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) market: the first industry-wide material allowables for metal additive manufacturing (AM) parts are anticipated to be released this autumn.
