Titanium and nickel alloys are mainly used as engineering materials for jet engines in aerospace technology, due to their temperature and oxidation resistance and their small thermal conduction. Cutting of these materials is particular characterised by high mechanical and thermal loads of the cutting wedge. Even by comparably small cutting speeds the tribologic system is dominated by very high wear rates. In addition the chip formation is characterised by snarl chips, which damage the machined surface frequently. The heat can be removed form the tool centre point by a strong cooling beam very fast. Additionally, very warm chips could be hardened, so that they break easily and the machined surface will not damaged. In addition special cooling systems, which work with very high pressures and very high flow rates are used. This way, the wear characteristics of the tools can be improved strongly.
