Challenges in Machining Aerospace Materials & Composites - IMTMA/P025



Programme Background

Aerospace industry is growing at a rapid pace and India is emerging as a preferred hub for aerospace manufacturing. However, machining of aerospace components is quiet challenging as it involves advanced materials like high performance metal alloys & composites. The machinability of these materials, complex shape coupled with stringent quality requirement makes the machining process highly demanding. The major challenges are thermal degradation, delamination, tool wear, composite erosion by continous chips of metallic materials, built up edge, etc. Appropriate selection of tooling and optimum application of machining parameters is crucial to achieve the desired results..

Focus Areas
  • Trends & Challenges in Aerospace Materials - material properties of super alloys, composites, etc.
  • Machinability of Aerospace materials; Machining of Titanium and super alloys- Tool selection and programming strategies.
  • Typical cutting parameters for Ti & super Alloys machining; selection of parameters for the different operations – using catalogues / web based solutions
  • Typical Case Studies from aerospace industry
  • Tools and selection of parameters for machining aluminium alloys
  • New Generation cutting tools for machining Aerospace materials
  • Composites - Types & Applications with industry examples;
  • Typical case studies in using composites for aerospace structures.
  • Machining of Composites – Tool selection & programming strategies;
  • Typical cutting parameters for machining composites;

Our Initiatives

Productivity Institute

The need for Productivity Institute

  • Is your work place suffering from poor productivity?
  • Do you feel that supervision is weak on the shop floor?
  • Do your shop floor personnel find it difficult to achieve targets?
  • You have the machine in place, but not the men to optimize usage?
