Machining Concepts is a leading provider of precision machining services for numerous industrial applications, including machining Inconel. With a state-of-the-art facility, cutting-edge equipment, and a team of skilled machinists, we can handle complex machining projects of any size and complexity. Inconel machining requires specific expertise, and we have vast experience and understand the unique properties of this material. We use the latest machining techniques and cutting tools to achieve optimal results while minimizing tool deflection and wear to achieve the required surface finishes.
One of the key advantages of using Machining Concepts for Inconel machining is our commitment to quality and precision. We follow strict quality control procedures throughout the machining process to ensure that the final product meets or exceeds your expectations – inspecting the raw material before machining, monitoring the machining process to ensure the correct parameters are maintained, and verifying the finished product to ensure it meets all specifications.
Material Types: bar stock, castings, forgings, tubing, and billets
Material Characteristics: Inconel is a high nickel alloy known for its resistance to high temperatures and excellent mechanical properties, making it a popular choice for aerospace and other high-stress applications. However, its unique properties can make machining challenging. Machining tools used for Inconel should be hard and durable to resist wear and deformation. The metal can also work-harden easily, meaning it can become more challenging to work with Inconel during the machining process. Using the correct cutting speed and feed rate is essential to prevent work hardening and minimize tool wear. In addition, using a cooling lubricant can prolong tool life and improve surface finish. The tensile strength of Inconel also makes it a complex material to machine, especially when using traditional cutting tools. Inconel 718 is a common variation of Inconel known for its high strength and resistance to corrosion and oxidation at high temperatures.
