How to enhance the productivity and tool life in turning super alloys by new technologies?


Challenge and Motivation

  • Poor machinability of difficult-to-cut materials.
  • Poor accessibility due to geometrical complex parts.
  • Excessive tool wear and formation of long chips.
  • Pick-ups due to insufficient cooling.


  • Improve productivity and tool life by combining simultaneous three axis turning technology with targeted high pressure cooling technology.
  • Optimize chip formation using adapted lubrication strategies.
