Milling Titanium

Trace-A-Matic specializes in machining titanium parts and assemblies using state-of-the-art CNC turning and 5-axis centers. Years of experience provide expert knowledge of titanium characteristics and how this material group reacts when machined. Titanium is a corrosion-resistant material with high strength. Cutting tool material selection, tool coating, cutting pass depths, mill/lathe feed and speed, chip control, and high-pressure coolant are critical in controlling heat generation. Excess heat can cause part movement and tool deflection during the machining operation. This level of skill ensures world-class precision machining that meets or exceeds the most demanding tolerances. The innovative Trace-A-Matic team is always available to review and guide you during the design process. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction, providing AS 9100/ISO 9001:2015 certified quality machining resulting in timely turnaround and on-time delivery.

Our machine operators are highly skilled at cutting titanium and its alloys. The proper machine tool, axial depth, feed rate, climb milling, radial engagement, and cutting force are essential to reduce heat, chip thinning, built-up edge, and extend tool life. High feed rates lead to high temperatures making titanium difficult to machine with precision. The work-hardening process makes the metal more rigid and stronger by plastic deformation of the working material by cutting edges.
