The machining and grinding characteristics of Densalloy are very similar to those of hard grey cast iron. Being non-porous, standard water soluble coolants may be used if desired, but are not required. The use of single point carbide tools is generally recommended and excellent finishes to close tolerances are readily achieved. The depth of cut and chip formation depicted in the various machining operations are performed by conventional machining methods.
