Abstract:
High speed machining of aluminum and magnesium helicopter gearcases was experimentally demonstrated to be five times more productive than contemporary conventional commercial practice for suitable operations. Appropriate techniques and performance characteristics are discussed for face milling, endmilling and planetary milling operations. Potential problem areas, such as surface characteristics and machine tool performance requirements are discussed.
