When you decide to build an aircraft piece by piece, in different places, on different machine tools and assembly systems, then ship all those pieces to another location for final production, challenges abound. In the case of the F-35, the Joint Strike Fighter designed to replace the F-16, A-10, and Harrier jets, among others, these production challenges have been shot down by a machine tool control that "pushes the envelope" for CNC design, engineering, and application technology.

The boom in giant aircraft is driving a radical transformation in the materials of choice. Suddenly, titanium, nickel-based alloys, ultra-high-strength steels and carbon-fiber composites have to be machined on a large scale and at high levels of productivity. Conventional cooling lubricant concepts can be limited in this environment. So, Hendrik Abrahams, a scientist on the staff of the Institute of Machining Technology (ISF) at Dortmund Technical University in Germany, has examined the potential advantages of cryogenic cooling.
