Ni-based heat-resistant alloys (HRA) such as Inconel® 718 are common materials used for machining airframe skins and rib components. These difficult-to-machine materials soften at temperatures exceeding 800ºC, becoming more accessible to mill due to their lower bearing and tensile strengths during the machining process. DIAEDGE Ceramic Endmills work effectively at these high temperatures and self-generate the amount of heat required to soften the machined material via ultra-high feeds and speeds to maximize machining efficiencies.
