Precision CNC Turning Titanium
Titanium turning services generally is used to produce critical aerospace components and medical devices. It offers a high strength-to-weight ratio and excellent corrosion resistance, which enables it to be used for designs with thin walls.
The thermal conductivity of titanium alloy is very poor, and the contact length between the chip and the tool is very short, which is not conducive to the export of cutting heat, so that the temperature of the cutting edge area is high, which is about twice as high as that of cutting 45 steel. In addition, the tool wear is also very serious. On the one hand, the titanium alloy has a strong chemical affinity with the tool material, and it is easy to bond with Ti, Co, C and other elements in the tool material, and the bonding wear is aggravated at high temperature; The alloy is easily combined with oxygen and nitrogen in the air to form a hard and brittle surface layer, which increases tool wear.
In addition, since the contact length between the chip and the rake face of the tool is only 1/3~1/4 of the cutting steel, the cutting force is concentrated near the cutting edge, and the tool is prone to chipping. Therefore, the tool material for cutting titanium alloys, such as high-speed steel, should be high-speed steel containing cobalt, aluminum or high vanadium.In order to improve production efficiency, BE-CU.com uses high-strength fine-grained tungsten-cobalt carbide tools with low affinity for titanium alloys and good thermal conductivity for titanium alloy turning process.

Top Titanium Cnc Turning Case Studies
Cnc Turning processes such as precision turning and swiss turning are today considered the most economic way to make titanium prototypes. Sometimes, however, certain non-machiningable materials are needed, and sometimes 3d printing is the only option. Our company has rich experience making titanium Concept models and precise functional components. Understanding the properties of different titanium alloy, with lots of testing and experimentation with pre-heating, tool paths and other factors, we are able to minimize deformation on titanium alloy. Be-cu prototyping company provides a range of solutions for the turning of titanium parts.
