Basic Information For Titanium
Titanium refers to a chemical element with the symbol Ti and atomic number 22.
Titanium has several advantages over other materials for the CNC machining process. The positive properties are excellent strength-to-weight ratio, high resistance, extreme temperatures, and low thermal expansion.
This material, on the other hand, also has weaknesses. The main disadvantages are poor heat dissipation, the difficulty of casting, and expensive material cost.
Titanium has a vast variety of alloys. Among them, Grade 5 Titanium, also known as Ti6Al4V, is the most common grade for the CNC machining process, taking for more than 50% of total usage.
In RapidDone, we have a strong CNC machining capability in both grade 2 and grade 5 material.
The Typical Titanium Machining Methods
1. CNC Turning Titanium
CNC Turning is one of the most popular machining processes for titanium part creation. At RapidDone, we can work with high-precision lathe machines. Most of our precise turning parts can reach a tolerance as tight as 0.02mm, as well as the quality surface.
2. Wire EDM Titanium
Titanium has lower specific gravity, it can be cut at a higher efficiency than other metals.
At RapidDone, we can create titanium parts by using a wire EDM process, covering aircraft, aerospace, and the medical industry. With our wire EDM service, we can offer machined parts with a quick turnaround time as fast as three days.
By considering titanium’s unique nature, our engineer can use special techniques, speeds feed to ensure a clean milling cut. Our manufacturing team can choose the best milling solution based on your requirement.
4. Waterjet Titanium
The waterjet process is one of the most practical options for cutting titanium in a variety of thicknesses.
The benefits are tight tolerances, reduction of material consumption, minimized material consumption.
RapidDone can work with a certified waterjet shop if you want to build your product with this process.
5. Hack Saw And Band Saw Cutting Titanium
Compared with other machining methods, hack saw and band saw cutting is a cost-effective option when cutting titanium sheets. This process is good for a thin titanium part that has a lower accuracy requirement.
6. Laser Cutting Titanium
Laser cutting has a higher power capacity, it is ideal for cutting thick titanium material, it allows to cut the material up to 2mm thick.
At RapidDone, we offer laser cutting sheet titanium service for your customized requirement.
The Typical Applications For Titanium CNC Machined Parts
Due to excellent mechanical properties, titanium machined parts are used wildly used in the aerospace, automotive, medical, and defense industries.
The typical applications are listed below.
• Jet engines/Aircraft/spacecraft frames and engines • Hydraulic parts • High precision gears • Compressor blades • Surgical instrument • Fuel tanks • Sporting equipment • Special titanium fasteners • Bicycles • Jewelry • Custom Titanium Machining spinning top • titanium bolts
The Finishes For Titanium Machined Parts
Similar to other metals, we offer strong finishing services for titanium machined parts. The typical types are as below:
As we know, machining titanium is more difficult work than aluminum machining. However, there are some optimized manufacturing tips, these tips can help you to get a more smooth cutting.
Follow these 8 tips by reading on.
1. Make The Right Selection For Cutting Tools
The cutting tool has a significant impact on the machining process, selecting a tool that can stand up to the high heat is the key to success.
Based on our manufacturing experience, the suggested cutting tools should have low cobalt content, high hot hardness, and no reaction with the titanium.
The coated high-speed steel (HSS) cutter is the right one, it can produce a chemical reaction between the chip and tool, the additional lubricity can allow you to have a more stable cutting.
2. Run A Wiser Toolpath
The right toolpath takes another big role for stable milling.
The climb milling technique, called “thick-to-thin chip formation”, is one of the most effective methods. This is a special cutting way, it creates a thick chip on entry and a thin chip. This way brings a good result that the tool can absorb maximum heat at the beginning and suffer less heat on exit to prevent chip adhesion.
3. Increase Tool Flute Quantity
The typical mills have four or six flutes, we suggest increasing to be more than 6 flutes for titanium milling. This type of miller can create smaller chips, and counteract the lower feed per tooth, resulting in higher increase productivity.
4. Keep Temperatures Down
Titanium has a lower thermal conductivity than the cutting tool, so most of the machining heat leads to the cutting tools. Therefore, it is important to control the tool temperature to be under the tool load capability.
There are several tips below.
Reduce heat generation dramatically by using a high-pressure coolant, pointing right on the cutting area during the machining operation.
Make sure your tool is sharp enough all the time. As titanium has a high hardness, it can dull your tools quickly during operation. It is necessary to watch your tool frequently, and replace them once you find them not sharp.
Use a smaller diameter tool. This type of tool allows more coolant touching time with the cut edge, resulting in getting more heat away.
5. Choose Comfort Cutting Speeds
Wrong cutting speed may cause melted or broken tool issues easily.
Titanium has a narrow band of machinability, it is important to adjust the cutting speed to be a comfort zone.
Based on our manufacturing experience, we suggest a cutting speed of 60 m/min for roughing operation and a cutting speed of 200m/min for finishing operation.
