The purpose of this project was to determine the machining characteristics of the ductile in termetallic compound NiTi alloys. This was accomplished by conducting tool life tests in turning, face milling and tapping these alloys. In addition, grinding tests were also made. The results of these tests were then used in establishing the recommended cutting speeds, feeds, tool geometries, cutting fluids and grinding conditions for machining the alloys. While the scope of this investigation was some what limited by the availability of each of the alloys, the tests were designed to extract as much machining data as possible from the shapes and quantities supplied.
