Machinability Evaluation of Future Turbomachinery Alloys
What about the machinability of future turbomachinery alloys and how to improve it?
Challenge and Motivation
- Future engine programs require higher heat resistant materials for turbine components.
- Lack of process knowledge regarding cutting of new materials superior IN718 (like e.g. Rene 65, AD730, γ-TiAl).
- Evaluation of machinability criteria.
- Derivation of recommendations for machining of the investigated “future material”.
