Nickel based super alloys like Inconel® are known for their excellent strength, - especially when they are operated at elevated temperatures. Inconel® also resists oxidation and corrosion, so because of these characteristics, Inconel® is widely used in aerospace/defense, turbine and nuclear power plant applications. Nevertheless, these excellent properties of super alloys significantly affect their machinability. The primary problems occurring during machining of Inconel alloys include:
Therefore, like other super alloys, Inconel® is difficult-to-cut. Our deep knowledge of the raw material characteristics of super allows is why we excel at milling and turning Inconel®.
