A Study on Titanium Alloys Deep-Hole Drilling Technique


Article Preview

Focusing on the difficult-to-cut characteristic of titanium alloy, this paper selects several cemented carbide tool materials in the tests of machining the titanium alloy workpieces. Different sets of geometrical parameters of the drilling bits are grouped, chosen and optimized, and then deep-hole drilling tests are carried out. The suitable cutter materials and the optimum geometrical parameters of the cutter for drilling deep holes in titanium alloy have been determined through the analysis of tested results.
