Abstract
ABSTRACT: Titanium aerospace components are notoriously expensive and difficult to machine at high speeds, driving up per-part costs and limiting application of this material where it could be of substantial benefit to the warfighter. Creare"s innovative Cryogenic Machining approach addresses this need by dramatically increasing processing speed and tool life, and eliminating lubricant capture and recycling systems. This program will focus on achieving a direct cost/performance comparison between traditional and cryogenic machining for specific F-35 parts. A quantitative, direct comparison of this technology"s value will enable broader adoption across the supply chain by clearly establishing the business case for the technology. BENEFIT: Our innovation will provide the benefits of reduced acquisition and maintenance costs for any program, increasing the use of advanced titanium components, and improve the lethality, performance, and reliability of key DoD systems, including the F-35.
