TITANIUMPrecorp Engineers Cutting Tools Specifically for Titanium
Precorp Offers Diverse Carbide, Coated Carbide and PCD Solutions
Titanium drilling represents one of the largest challenges in aerospace machining. Particularly when stacked with other materials, such as Carbon Fiber (CF) or Aluminum (AL) in air frame manufacturing, titanium usually represents the highest cost operation. Titanium requires lower drilling feeds and reduces tool life. When stacked with CF or AL, titanium chips may oversize the hole in the softer material. Tool geometry and tool material is critical to ensure good chip control, low thrust, and long tool life.
86 Series: The 86 series is designed with a unique design to reduce cutting forces. This design allows the 86 series to maintain durability and sharpness. The 86 geometry cuts fibers with low thrust, leaving minimal fiber breakout and delamination. The 86 has two common point angles. For Titanium we recommend the 86B. The sharpness of the 86 series provides a clean cut as the drill exits the material stack, yielding small exit burrs.
