CNC Machining Titanium Parts

CNC machining machine

Titanium materials are materials with certain shapes, sizes, and performances made of titanium ingots and titanium alloy metals through certain pressure processing, and are also called titanium processed materials. Most of the titanium processing is through pressure processing, which causes the processed titanium (blank, ingot, etc.) to produce plastic deformation. According to the different processing temperatures of titanium materials, it can be divided into two types: cold processing and hot processing. According to the processing technology and product formation, it can be roughly divided into several categories such as plates, bars, pipes, forgings, castings, and so on. Widely used in high-end fields, such as high-end chemical, aerospace, medicine, and marine engineering, the demand for titanium processing materials in high-end fields has increased significantly, especially in the aerospace field.

CNC Machining Titanium Materials

Titanium ores are mainly ilmenite and rutile. The two most prominent advantages of titanium are high specific strength and strong corrosion-resistance, which determines that titanium must have broad application prospects in aerospace, weaponry, energy, chemical industry, metallurgy, construction, and transportation. The abundant reserves provide a resource base for the wide application of titanium.

CNC Machining Titanium Material Properties

Low density: the density of metal titanium is 4.51g/cm3, which is about 50% of copper and 77% of low carbon steel.

Corrosion resistance: It can generate an oxide film from titanium in the air. And it is almost completely noncorrosive by seawater. Known as “marine metal” corrosion. Chlor-alkali, soda ash, vacuum salt production, petrochemicals, ships, desalination, nuclear power plants, thermal power desulfurization, etc.

Temperature performance: The new titanium alloy can be used temporarily at 600°C or higher, and maintains ductility and toughness especially suitable for space coke consumption at low temperatures of -196~-253°C. Therefore, it is called “space metal”, aerospace, refrigeration industry, and other biocompatibility without metal allergy. Known as the “biometal” key information.

Superconductivity: The wire made of niobium-titanium alloy exhibiting zero resistance below the critical temperature can pass through any power equipment and other superconducting properties. At present, the consumption of titanium materials in my country is mainly in the fields of the chemical industry, aerospace and sports, and leisure.

CNC Machining Titanium FAQs

High-speed steel (HSS) drills are terrific for titanium as long as they are sharp, but carbide drills still offer the very best outcomes and also deep opening boring. Due to the fact that titanium is not a very good conductor of heat, a lot of the warmth enters into the cutting tool, highlighting the need for properly maintained and sharp devices.

The thermal conductivity of most titanium alloys is very low, only 1/7 of steel and 1/16 of aluminum. Therefore, the heat generated in the process of cutting titanium alloys will not be quickly transferred to the workpiece or taken away by the chips but will accumulate in the cutting area, and the temperature generated can be as high as 1 000 ℃ or more, which will cause the cutting edge of the tool to wear quickly, chip and crack. A built-up edge is created, which quickly causes a worn edge, which in turn generates more heat in the cutting area, further reducing tool life.

The high temperature generated during the cutting process also destroys the surface integrity of the titanium alloy parts, resulting in a decrease in the geometric accuracy of the parts and a work hardening phenomenon that severely reduces its fatigue strength.

The elasticity of titanium alloys may be beneficial to part performance, but during the cutting process, the elastic deformation of the workpiece is an important cause of vibration. The cutting pressure causes the “elastic” workpiece to move away from the tool and bounce so that the friction between the tool and the workpiece is greater than the cutting action. The friction process also generates heat, aggravating the problem of poor thermal conductivity of titanium alloys.

Grade 4 titanium is generally considered the strongest pure titanium, although the least moldable. It also has excellent corrosion resistance and outstanding ductility. Titanium is also lighter weight than some steels, such as stainless, due to its low density.
