Stem drilling
35. This process consists of tubes (cathode) produced from titanium and suitably insulated to ensure a reaction at the tip. A twenty per cent solution of nitric acid is fed under pressure onto the blade producing holes generally in the region of 0.026 in. diameter. The process is more speedy in operation than electro-discharge machining and is capable of drilling holes up to a depth two hundred times the diameter of the tube in use.
