Cryogenic machining is not a new concept, but it continues to fascinate even the most experienced hands in the manufacturing sector: by offsetting the temperature increase in a cutting tool by using liquid nitrogen as a flood cooling medium, it becomes possible to extend tool life while maintaining the speed and feed rates necessary to cut very hard materials, like titanium, nickel-based super alloys (e.g., Inconel), or compacted graphite iron (CGI). That such materials are critical i
