The chapter deals with methods for improving the turning of titanium alloy parts applied in the aircraft construction industry. The factors preventing cutting performance from improvement are analyzed. The influence of temperature on the state of the machined material and cutting tool was assessed. The influence of cutting data on the output turning parameters was studied. In machining of aircraft titanium alloy parts, cutting speed restriction was observed. Turning cutters with carbide inserts were used. During the experiment, cutting forces and temperature were measured. The influence of cutting parameters on machining performance and temperature was studied. The relationship between cutting forces and cutting parameters was identified. Calculation of relative energy consumption for machined material removal proved to be correct. Methods for improving the turning productivity for VT20 titanium alloy parts were developed. Potential areas for studies on a high productivity turning of titanium alloys were suggested. The studies can improve part’s machining performance.
