HORIZONTAL MACHINING IN TITANIUMPresented by Mike Kerscher, Mazak Product Manager
Titanium is popular in aircraft part design because its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and corrosion resistance allows planes to fly faster, further and carry bigger payloads using less fuel. However, as the importance of the material continues to grow, so do its machining requirements. Therefore, you can’t afford to miss this free webinar that will focus on advanced horizontal machining solutions for overcoming the production challenges unique to this tough material.
During this webinar, you’ll gain valuable insight that includes:
- How titanium differs from aluminum in the machining of airframes, engines and other aircraft hardware
- How machine tool builders adapt their products to better accommodate titanium, which includes introducing new horizontal machining centers that are specifically designed for titanium machining
- How the Mazak HORIZONTAL CENTER NEXUS 6800 HM (hard metals package) and MEGA 8800 make the heavy-duty machining of tough materials efficient, accurate and productive
