5ME (Warren, MI) and Doosan Machine Tools America (DMTA: Pine Brook, NJ) have joined forces to showcase the advantages of cryogenic machining. Benfits include faster processing, longer tool life, increased part quality and lower environmental impact in production applications. “Cryogenic machining is particularly suited to processing tough materials like titanium, diesel and compacted graphite iron (CGI), hardened/stainless/alloy steels and ceramic matrix composites,” said Mike Judge, executive vice president of 5ME. “As a result of this strategic alliance agreement with Doosan, 5ME’s cryogenic machining technology is now offered as an option across a variety of Doosan Machine Tool platforms, allowing manufacturers to address real-world production challenges.”
5ME’s unique, multi-patented cryogenic machining process is a breakthrough technology that enables higher metal removal rates (MRR) and longer tool life by delivering liquid nitrogen at ‑321°F through the spindle/turret, cutter body, cutting tool, and directly to the cutting edge. This environmentally friendly machining technology increases throughput, part quality, tool life, and profitability, while eliminating cutting fluids and reducing energy consumption.
