Titanium is an important metal for aerospace applications because of its relative light weight strength andcorrosion resistance. However, machining titanium through traditional methods can be difficult, and working in aerospace requires tight precision controls to ensure safe and reliable function, resulting in a number of innovative machining methods, as we’ve written about in the past.
To assist machinists looking for advice and guidance in these technically-demanding methods, Mazak will host a webinar on May 22 at 2 pm (eastern) to provide a look at horizontal machining solutions for machining titanium for aerospace applications. The free webinar will cover subjects including:
- 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; and,
- 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.
Aerospace manufacturers are invited to participate in the webinar, for which you can register by clicking here.
