Summary

Aim of an industry-connection-project of the IPL at the university Gesamthochschule Kassel was the changeover of the cutting procedures of machining magnesium-alloys on dry-treatment and the simultaneous increase of the cutting-parameters. The development of geometrical optimized tools with inner air-supply and particular coatings to the diminution of the adhesion-tendency enables the economic dry-treatment of complex magnesium-workpieces. Specifically when drilling, feeding speeds of 12 m/min and cutting-ways of more than 1 km in dry cutting (without minimal lubrification) could be reached through the development of new tool-geometries.
