Stainless steels and exotic materials

Super alloys:

  • Inconel
  • Hastelloy
  • Nickel based materials
  • Titanium
  • Duplex
  • Stainless steel

Most common challenges:

  • Short tool life due to abrasiveness of the material
  • Vibrations in product, tools or machine, whether or not because of own frequencies

The solution:

  • Stable clamping of the tool and the product
  • Using the right coolant
  • Optimal chip removal

Solutions for machining exotic materials:

  • VHCH: 4 flute ceramic mill for highfeed strategy
  • VHCMF: 6 flute ceramic mill for trochoidal strategy
  • VHTR: special developed mill for trochoidal strategies with chipbreaker

Use the right coolant for the tool. The recommended oil percentage of the emulsion coolant is between 8-12%. Strive for a smooth chip flow for the best results.
