Project Title: Titanium Machinability

Academic Supervisors: Dr Martin Jackson

AMRC Supervisor: Dr Pete Crawforth

Industry Sponsor: Sandvik Coromant

My project aims to develop understanding within the area of Titanium Machinability. Small and large-scale tool wear studies should facilitate the advancement of Sandvik products whilst simultaneously providing valuable machinability information to manufacturers that are interested in using titanium alloys in their products.


I wanted the experience of both industry and academia whilst working on a subject that I am thoroughly interested in. The EngD provides all of this whilst offering huge amounts of self-development and networking opportunities.
