Aerospace turbines must withstand extreme temperatures and pressure differences. They are therefore made of advanced material, such as nickel based super alloys (e.g. Inconel 718, Waspalloy and Udimet 720).
Nickel based super alloys are excellent for their high temperature and stress resistance properties. It is important to apply best practice strategies as these materials are demanding to machine.
