The report covers the state of the art of metal-removal operations for titanium and its alloys. It describes the methods currently employed for conventional machining, grinding, electrolytic, and chemical machining processes. The precautions which should be taken to avoid troubles resulting from the characteristics typical of titanium are pointed out. Ten machining, two grinding, two cutting, and two unconventional metal-removal operations are discussed separately. In other sections, the mechanics of chip-forming processes, the response to machining variables, costs, and precautions desirable from the standpoint of safety are discussed.
