The selection of machining parameters for cutting tool material combinations is generally based on experience or static databases. In general, these parameters tend to cause the cutting tool and the machine tool to be grossly under utilized. The National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining NCDMM, in conjunction with TechSolve Cincinnati, OH, and General Dynamics Land Systems GDLS, Lima, OH, have worked together to optimize the machining parameters of three 3 materials chosen by GDLS. These materials are Titanium 6-4, Steel Mil-A-12560, and Aluminum 2519. The optimization database developed by TechSolve, through the efforts of this project, will potentially provide GDLS with a 3-fold increase in machining performance for the M1 tank and other related components.
