Cutting Titanium Quickly and Easily

Precision Sawing Cut-to-Size

Challenges With Cutting Titanium

Titanium alloys, which are often used in industries such as aerospace and chemicals, have a high strength-to-weight ratio and offer superior corrosion resistance. The exceptional biocompatibility of commercially pure titanium, along with some specific titanium alloys, such as Ti-6Al-4V, makes it ideal for medical devices as well. However, cutting titanium can be highly difficult, as it has low thermal conductivity. As high temperatures are often generated during the cutting process, the heat is unable to dissipate through the material and instead collects at the cutting point, leading to chipping and reducing tool life.

The key to easily machining titanium lies in using the right cutting tools, speeds, and feeds, depending on the alloy type.

Titanium Cutting Made Easy With Our New Saw

Our Amada PCSAW 530 X band saw with pulse cutting technology can quickly and easily cut even the toughest titanium alloys with the highest precision. The benefits of using this saw for cutting titanium include the following:

  • A lower cutting resistance through pulse cutting technology
  • More effective tooth contact
  • Shorter chipping, leading to lower thermal loads

The Amada PCSAW 530 X has a band speed of 15-120 m/min continuously variable and a sawing capacity of 30-530 mm for round and square materials. It also has improved cooling actions to lubricate the chip tool edge to prevent work hardening.

Quality Titanium and Titanium Alloys for Any Application

Titanium is known as one of the strongest and most durable metals on the planet. It’s useful for many applications, including in:

  • Jet engines.
  • Airframes.
  • Chemical processing.
  • Heat exchangers.
  • Tanker trucks.

Cutting titanium can be challenging and expensive, and it often requires a dedicated setup designed to handle its machining requirements. It’s important to take advantage of a metal supplier such as Industrial Metal Service to handle your titanium supply and cutting needs.
