Cryogenic Machining: Coolest Video
April 8, 2016
Machining titanium and other exotic materials presents a number of challenges, and although there are many conventional techniques that help in this process, this video presents a unique, unconventional approach: Cryogenics.
Simply put, this system from 5ME chills the cutting tool to -321º F. This allows the Okuma MA-600HII machining center to reduce the cycle time required to machine an aerospace structural piece by more than half while dropping the overall manufacturing cost by 30%.
According to 5ME this process:
Increases processing speed up to 5 times
Reduces tool wear
Improves part quality
Protects the environment
Eliminates flood coolant costs
Lowers overall production costs
