Effect of milling strategy and tool geometry on machining cost when cutting titanium alloys
The growing demands on aerospace manufacturers to cut more difficult-to-machine materials at increasing material removal rates require that manufacturers enhance their machining capability. This requires a better understanding ...
Heat treatment of TI-6AL-4V produced by laserCUSING
LaserCUSING® is a selective laser melting (SLM) process that is capable of manufacturing parts by melting powder with heat input from a laser beam. LaserCUSING demonstrates potential for producing the intricate geometries ...
The effect of cutting parameters on surface integrity in milling TI6AL4V
(Southern African Institute for Industrial Engineering, 2016)
The objective of machining performance is to reduce operational costs and to increase the production rate while maintaining or improving the required surface integrity of the machined component. Together with industrial ...
On the impact of different system strategies on the material performance of selective laser melting- manufactured TI6AL4V components
(Southern African Institute for Industrial Engineering, 2016-11)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Selective Laser Melting (SLM) is a powder-based additive manufacturing process that has gained substantial interest in recent years due to its feasibility of producing geometrically- complex metallic ...
