Abstract:

Four groups of alloys of interest to the aerospace industry were selected for the machinability studies from a survey of the industry and a review of the literature. The four groups consisted of 1 high strength steels, 2 titanium alloys, 3 nickel base alloys and 4 stainless steel alloys. Both wrought and cast alloys were included in the first three groups. A short study was also made of the machined surfaces obtained by face milling and grinding of two titanium alloys, a high strength steel, and a nickel base alloy.
