The special properties of titanium alloys make it an increasingly popular field of application. High strength/weight ratio, excellent toughness and excellent corrosion resistance make titanium alloys suitable for medical implants, golf club heads and military armor.

However, the turning of titanium alloy parts is very difficult, which makes the mechanical craftsmen daunting. They believe that the super performance of titanium alloy greatly weakens the machinable “ability” and makes the cutting process extremely challenging. Although this view makes sense, it is not comprehensive. This article explores the turning strategy of titanium alloys and will help mechanical craftsmen to process difficult-to-machine materials such as racing parts, underwater breathing apparatus, and new cutting techniques.


Bill Headland, a senior project specialist at RTI International Metals, a titanium alloy manufacturer, points out that although many processing plants treat titanium alloy processing as a fearful way, titanium alloys actually include a wide range of products. You must understand that what you are processing is Which kind. Titanium alloys have many grades, some of which are difficult to machine, while others are not. Commercial pure titanium (CP grade) is a non-alloy material commonly used in the manufacture of medical parts, heat exchangers and eyeglass frames. CP grades have excellent corrosion resistance and are relatively easy to process. However, compared with other titanium alloys, its strength is very low, and it is sticky and soft.

Various titanium alloys exhibit different cutting properties. Some people think that the time required to machine a Ti6Al4V workpiece is usually three times that of a steel piece. Some people say that it takes twice as long to machine a Ti6Al4V workpiece to machine a Ti5553.
