Solutions for cost effective and high-quality machining of aerospace spool

Solutions for cost effective and high-quality machining of aerospace spool  

The two challenging features of this component are the deep internal chambers and the external blade tulip grooves.

A combination of engineered solutions and methodology with optimised grades are the key to success.

Tooling solutions for machining of aerospace spool

Grade GC1105 – designed for the challenge of super alloy machining

GC1105 provides secure, reliable, quality machining, even flank wear and is truly versatile in all application areas.

  • Reliability in intermediate stage machining through superior notch wear resistance in combination with good edge line toughness.
  • Guaranteed accurate high quality performance in last stage machining provided by our razor sharp, ground inserts and our state of the art thin coating, with excellent adhesion.

Grade GC1105

CoroCut® angled inserts to fit any groove shape

Designed specifically for reaching difficult to access grooves and pockets in complex components. To complement the standard CoroCut 90 degree programme, blanks are available in 90,45 degree and T-shape for more special requirements.

Dampened blades with Coromant Capto®

To machine the deep internal chambers typically up to 150 mm, long, slender tools are required. The challenges are tendency to vibration as well as removal of the chips from the groove.

Turning one of the most challenging features into a secure process has been achieved by:

  • Oval serration blade system for best stability and accessibility. The 100mm high blade allows for best coolant delivery to assist in chip removal
  • For blades longer than 4x width of the blade a patented dampening device is part of the design. This allows depth of cut to be 4 times greater than without dampening
  • Trochoidal turning technique combined with ceramic grade CC6160, 6220 or 6230 reduces the number of machining passes required

A secure process with more than double the productivity

Ceramic turning

Ceramic grades CC6220 and CC6230 are designed specifically for the challenges of new HRSA materials where whisker ceramics and SiAlONs fall short, capable of higher cutting speeds, contributing to reduced cost per component. For high metal removal rates in pocketing and profiling applications, choose grade CC6160.
