The aerospace industry uses high strength materials like aluminum alloy, titanium alloy and CFRP to make their products lighter and increase engine efficiency. Since those materials are difficult to cut, cutting tools and the solutions have utmost importance.
Here are YG-1’s solutions for the industry which enable higher productivity, stable and accurate process as well as reduced processing time for maximized production efficiency. Even though aluminum alloy is not categorized as one of the difficult to cut materials, it is not easy to process because the material requires fast processing speed and deep cutting to reduce processing time with good surface roughness. This is why ‘Al7075’, the hardest aluminum alloy, is widely used in the industry.
YG-1’s ALU-POWER HPC END MILL which specializes in aluminum cutting for the industry provides solutions for such difficulties with another product line, DREAM DRILL ALU.
CFRP is another important material in the industry. Since it is extremely strong, flexible and light, it is a valuable material not only in the aerospace industry but also in the automotive and energy industries. The main problems of processing it are delamination and fiber breakout. CFRP’s low machinability and expensive price require specialized cutting tools of high quality and productivity. YG-1’s D-POWER CFRP END MILL, ROUTERS, DREAM DRILL CFRPs minimize delamination and fiber breakout and lead to excellent surface roughness and long tool life.
Titanium alloy, inconel and nickel alloy are also important in the industry. They are difficult to cut materials. Since they have extraordinary corrosion resistance and the ability to withstand extreme temperatures, they cause a lot of abrasion on tools and reduce processing efficiency drastically. V7 PLUS END MILLS and TitaNox Power END MILLS have sharp cutting edges, high hardness and designs that minimize machining load. Those high-end End Mills of YG-1 increase tool life and machinability altogether.
