Machining Aerospace Materials- Challenges and Solutions

Date : 26 to 27 November, 2019

@ 12/5, D1 Block, MIDC Chinchwad, Pune


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..

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day programme on “Machining Aerospace Materials - Challenges and Solutions” on 26 - 27 November 2019 at IMTMA, Pune

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
• Do's & don'ts in aerospace material machining
• Real time machining – Demonstration of machining of aerospace materials on CNC machining centre

* Note : Factory visit of participants for Demo will be subject to the approval of the hosting industry.

Key Take Aways
