Long-edge cutter

  • 24-Nov-2010 02:37 EST

ATI Stellram’s chevron-style milling cutter, the Stellram 5230VS12, is designed for machining titanium and other difficult-to-machine materials such as nickel-based alloys and cobalt-based alloys. In comparison studies, the cutter achieved metal removal rates up to two times greater than comparable cutters on the market. The chevron cutter positions multiple inserts along the cutting edge of each helical flute. This insert placement design provides smooth, progressive penetration and cutting action for extended tool life, lower power consumption, and up to a 30% improvement in surface finish. Cutter diameters range from 2.5 to 4.0 in, with four to six flutes and 6-14 inserts positioned along each flute.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.

NASA has selected proposals for the creation of two multi-disciplinary, university-led Space Technology Research Institutes (STRIs) that will focus on the development of technologies critical to extending human presence deeper into our solar system. The new STRIs will bring together researchers from various disciplines and organizations to collaborate on the advancement of cutting-edge technologies in bio-manufacturing and space infrastructure.
