High Speed Dry Machining of Aerospace Aluminium Alloys
This paper explains the industrial drivers towards dry machining and reviews the technical challenges for high speed dry machining of high strength light alloys. Test results are presented that show that less heat is partitioned into the workpiece for high speed dry machining. The understanding and modelling of machining induced temperatures is highlighted as the key issue due to its impact on component performance and its effect on other dry machining parameters.
