Research Report: Overcoming Cutting Tool Challenges in Aerospace Machining

Aerospace manufacturing has always been on the cutting edge, from materials to production techniques. However, these two aspects of aerospace machining can conflict, as manufacturers strive to maintain machining efficiency with new materials by using new methods and cutting tools. Complex, difficult-to-machine components—such as blisks—combine advanced materials with intricate geometries to present significant challenges. How do companies handle all this data?

The changes taking place in aerospace materials and machining bring both challenges and benefits. The ever-expanding options for aerospace tooling and materials can lead manufacturing engineers to be overwhelmed when specifying tooling for a part. Narrowing the options can cuts costs and potentially reduce lead times, but that raises the obvious question of which tools to choose for which materials.

In this report, readers will learn about:

  • New developments in proprietary and non-proprietary aerospace materials and how these changes impact cutting tools
  • Current challenges for machining critical aerospace components
  • Technologies and tools being used to manage the flood of data – and use it effectively
  • Tips for choosing the right cutting tools that will that deliver optimum performance aerospace machining

By the end of this report, manufacturing professionals should be better equipped to select cutting tools for aerospace applications when dealing with difficult-to-machine materials under tight timelines without sacrificing quality.
