To get high quality, lightweight, durability for this Pen, customer changed aluminum and stainless steel to grade 5 titanium alloy TI6AL4V for its properties of high strength-to-density ratio and better corrosion resistance.
CNC milling titanium parts 4Titanium alloy had fairly low thermal conductivity that probably resulted in burning or chip adhesion to the cutting tool during milling.
5 axis milled titanium parts 6Seamless alignment between Cap and Housing was the key challenge, we offered minor but crucial design modification to meet this demand.
CNC titanium partsTitanium alloy had less stiffness than many other metals, which led to the possible risk of distortion and cutting tool jarring during the milling.
