ABSTRACT
Titanium super alloys are often used in the chemical and aerospace industries. Especially because of financial savings, resulting primarily from cheaper operation of equipment. - Machinability of titanium alloys is more difficult than that of other metals. In addition, the low thermal conductivity causes the alloy to stick to the cutting edge of the cutting tool, thereby causing it to blunt faster. The article deals with experimental evaluation of cutting forces and the design of suitable cutting parameters for machining of titanium alloy UNS R56260 by high-feed milling technology. Testing was carried out in climb and conventional milling under different cutting conditions. Cutting components of forces Fx, Fy, Fz were measured and evaluated. The results of the measurements were processed into a graphical form and suitable cutting conditions were designed in terms of acting cutting forces.
