GOMES, Jefferson de Oliveira et al. Evaluation of 5-axis HSC dynamic behavior when milling TiAl6V4 blades. J. Braz. Soc. Mech. Sci. & Eng. [online]. 2010, vol.32, n.3, pp.208-217. ISSN 1678-5878.

Gas combustion represents the second principal way of electricity generation due to its disposal, and smaller dimension and pollution capacity when compared with diesel engines. The conversion of natural gas in electricity is made through gas turbines, and the rotors of its compressors are components that present significant difficulty in its manufacture. This paper focuses on an optimization approach of the 5-axis milling of titanium blisks, based on all the CAD/CAM modeling chain. Special interest is pointed to the systematic analysis of the correlation between machining parameter and surface integrity properties. The experimental part of this work is composed by two tests. The first one analyses the roughing operation of a TiAl6V4 impeller when using a tool radial engagement of 30% and 68%. The second is the simultaneous 5 axes milling of a test-piece, a TiAl6V4 integral bladed disk (BLISK) section containing five blades, with which the best milling strategy for this purpose is sought. The results showed the fundamental importance of CAD modeling in order to achieve simultaneous 5 axes milling without intermittent feed speed. It was observed that milling a blade following its parametric curves in the BLISK axis direction is the best choice, among the strategies proposed.
