Abstract : This report contains the results of the first phase of a multi-year Manufacturing Methods and Technology project which addresses the manufacturing approach of new materials under consideration for cannon tube components. Activities concentrated on the assemblage of preliminary machinability data for a Beta-C, 3A1-8V-6Cr-4Zr-Mo, titanium (Ti) alloy to support in-house machining requirements. In addition, machinability tests were performed by an independent laboratory to develop a substantial database for optimizing the manufacture of Ti alloy production components. Keywords: Titanium alloy, Aluminium alloys, Vanadium, Zirconium, Molybdenum.
