5ME announces agreement with Star SU to advance cryogenic machining

September 1, 2016 – 5ME, LLC and Star SU, LLC are officially united in an effort to further cryogenic machining in the manufacturing industry. A licensing agreement has been signed authorizing Star SU to manufacture and market 5ME’s Cryogenic tooling designs for end mills, ball mills, tapered ball mills, thread mills, reamers, and drills under the brand name BlueZone Cryogenic tooling. The agreement covers sales and service in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

5ME’s cryogenic machining process is a technology that enables higher cutting speeds for increased material removal rates and longer tool life by transmitting liquid nitrogen at  321°F through the spindle/turret and tool body, directly to the cutting tool’s edge.

Applications include high-speed cutting of titanium and other tough-to-cut alloys common amongst the aerospace, heavy equipment and energy industries.
