Abstract. Titanium alloys are increasingly being used in various applications due to their excellent mechanical properties and corrosion resistance. However, their machinability can be challenging due to their high strength and low thermal conductivity. Cryogenic assistance is a promising technique that can be used to improve the machinability of titanium alloys by reducing the cutting forces and improving the tool life. This study investigates the effect of cryogenic assistance on the machining of Ti54M, a high-strength titanium alloy. The results show that cryogenic assistance can significantly reduce the cutting forces and improve the tool life. However, the benefits of cryogenic assistance are limited at high cutting speeds. The study also provides insights into the mechanisms by which cryogenic assistance improves machinability.
