Common to the Swedish industry partners is machining, chip forming, surface finishing, tool wear, process robustness and cost. Some aluminium adheres to the tool which results in tool breaks, poor surface quality and high costs due to high tool wear, as one is forced to use substandard cutting data, which results in reduced productivity. The project will deliver a turnkey solution for cryogenic cooling in combination with a new cutting tool design for improved heat transfer to the cryogenic refrigerant.
