The challenge of this project is to find the right tools to machine these innovative materials (cutting angle, cutting inserts) and to identify which cryogenic machining process could be used.
“This R&D partnership aims to focus on the development of our alloys (The Vulkalloys®) to make them biocompatible. These materials are used for small parts for applications in the watchmaking, aerospace and biomedical sectors for example,” explains Bruno Lavisse.
This kind of collaborative projects are essential for Vulkam’s R&D work and we hope that it will lead to a better understanding of how these materials can be used in the future.
