Abstract: Titanium alloys have been widely used in the aerospace, biomedical and automotive industries because of their good strength-to-weight ratio and superior corrosion resistance. However, it is very difficult to machine them due to their poor machinability. When machining titanium alloys with conventional tools, the tool wear rate progresses rapidly, and it is generally difficult to achieve a cutting speed of over 60m/min. Other types of tool materials, including ceramic, diamond, and cubic boron nitride (CBN), are highly reactive with titanium alloys at higher temperature. However, binder-less CBN (BCBN) tools, which do not have any binder, sintering agent or catalyst, have a remarkably longer tool life than conventional CBN inserts even at high cutting speeds. In order to get deeper understanding of high speed machining (HSM) of titanium alloys, the generation of mathematical models is essential. The models are also needed to predict the machining parameters for HSM. This paper aims to give an overview of recent developments in machining and HSM of titanium alloys, geometrical modeling of HSM, and cutting force models for HSM of titanium alloys.
