R L Chandler: 262. Design Consideration of Chemically Milled Parts. 1960.



This paper was presented at the Nineteenth National Conference of the Society of Aeronautical Weight Engineers at Los Angeles, California, May 16 – 19, 1960. From its conception in 1953, chemical milling went almost immediately into production applications. The many outstanding advantages of chemical milling have resulted in a rapid growth in usage and a continual development of new techniques in both the process and its application.
The primary developments of chemical milling have been aimed toward making a minimum weight part by removing all material beyond that necessary for actual stress requirement. This continual development of application techniques makes necessary a steady flow of information from chemical milling processors to designers.
The purpose of this paper is to describe the chemical milling process in brief and in more detail outline the primary applications, design, information, and standard practices.
