Cryo-machining of Fully Sintered Worm Gear
Currently, parts are machined in the pre-sintered condition. ICEFLY-assisted machining was in the fully sintered condition, resulting in elimination of an intermediate process.
With ICEFLY, cutting speed was increased by 87% over the current baseline condition on pre-sintered parts.
Cryo-machining of Hoeganaes Sinterhardened Alloy (FLC2 4808)
The Hoeganaes sinterhardened alloy tested, was a FLC 4808 alloy (Ancorsteel 737 + 2%Cu + 0.9% Graphite) with no machining additives. Dry cutting with PCBN tools is the preferred machining option.
