Inconel 718

SECTOR: Aerospace

Summary: a major aerospace industry supplier searched the market to improve their manufacturing process.

More than the 85% of the material being processed used nickel chrome alloys, materials with poor machinability at a very high cost. Any slight mistake results in substantial costs.

Provided Solution: the customer enquired with several band saw machine suppliers for the best solution for Inconel 718. We provided detailed information of our knowledge in this application. The customer was amazed, it seemed too good to be true!
They invite us to their facilities to study the process they were using, after which we were more convinced than ever we would be able to improve their manufacturing process.

In these cases, any minor detail is very important for which reason first of all we analyzed coolant, blades and material. When the DANOBAT band saw machine IDS5A with zone cutting technology was ready we started performed a series of trials with the proper coolant, blade and parameters for their material.

We were able to cut faster with a longer blade life and greater output using a 50 mm blade as opposed to their other machines using a 66 mm blade.

Moreover, the accuracy of the cuts avoided having to perform subsequent machining, thus increasing productivity and reducing the cost per cut.
