Optimised titanium and Inconel machining

An audience of around 60 aerospace production specialists were treated to a font of advanced manufacturing knowledge at the University of Sheffield’s AMRC near Sheffield, when machining solutions specialist Starrag UK joined forces with tooling expert Kennametal to present their ‘Optimised Titanium and Inconel Machining’ event – with the added bonus of an insight into some of Rolls-Royce’s activities.

The event not only included technical presentations – on the benefits of Starrag machining centres and a number of new Kennametal developments – but there were also demonstrations of best-practice Inconel and titanium machining on the AMRC’s Starrag STC 1250 machining centre, as well as a keynote speech on ‘High Performance Manufacturing’ by Rolls-Royce’s technology partnership manager Dr Jamie McGourlay. Starrag has eight machines in-situ at the AMRC and the accompanying Nuclear AMRC.
