Abstract:

THE ULTRA-HIGH-STRENGTH STEEL, AF1410, HAS DESIRABLE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES FOR NAVAL AIRCRAFT APPLICATIONS. HOWEVER, THE ABSENCE OF ACCURATE MACHINING INFORMATION ON THE VARIOUS OPERATIONS NECESSARY TO PRODUCE PARTS HAS LIMITED THE USE OF THIS ALLOY. SIGNIFICANT POTENTIAL IMPROVEMENTS OF IN-SERIVE LIFE OF AIRCRAFT COMPONENTS ARE NOT BEING REALIZED, ALONG WITH THE RESULTING COST SAVINGS, BECAUSE OF THE INABILITY TO FORECASE MACHINE COSTS AND PRODUCTIVITY LEVELS. COMPREHENSIVE, ACCURATE MACHINING DATA, WHEN ACCOMPANIED BY A SIMPLE EASY-TO-USE COST ANALYSIS, ENABLES THE POTENTIAL CONTRACTOR TO COMPETITIVELY BID ON MANUFACTURING AIRCRAFT COMPONENTS, BASED ON HIS INDIVIDUAL EQUIPMENT, SCHEDULING, AND PERSONNEL LIMITATIONS. CURRENT EFFICIENT TECHNIQUES AVAILABLE FOR MACHINABILITY AND GRINDABILITY STUDIES PERMIT THE ACQUISITION OF THE MAXIMUM USABLE INFORMATION WITH A MINIMUM INVESTMENT OF TESTING TIME, USUALLY PRODUCING STATISTICALLY VALIDATED TEST RESULTS. THE COMBINED RELATIONSHIP OF CUTTING SPEED AND FEED ON TOOL LIFE OR GRINDING WHEEL WEAR CAN OFTEN BE EXPRESSED AS AN EQUATION WHICH CAN SUPPORT A VARIETY OF COMPUTER BASED PLANNING AND SCHEDULING AS WELL AS OTHER CIM SYSTEMS. METCUT RESEARCH HAS BEEN PRODUCING MACHINING AND GRINDING INFORMATION FOR VARIOUS U.S. GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND PRIVATE INDUSTRY SINCE 1948.
