Skim Cutting Titanium

By in ,

Our customer builds and supplies complete machine tooling solutions. They are working with the Northfield engineers to develop a skim cutting solution for multiple sized parts.

Brief & Challenge 

The workpieces are a range of titanium parts that require skim cutting, some need to be held by the outer diameter and some on the inner diameter. The main challenge is achieving this with a single chuck.

Titanium_Grinding_Custom_Tooling
Northfield Precision Model 650 Sliding-Jaw Air Chuck

To meet this challenge, we provided a Northfield Precision Model 650 Sliding-Jaw Air Chuck (0.0001” TIR) with interchangeable and custom top tooling. 

The jaws are Rockwell 60 tested therefore allowing for future regrinds and as a result increasing the jaws longevity.

This chucking setup is capable of .0001” TIR total accuracy and repeatability on all critical surfaces, those which touch the parts.
