This example of a stability diagram shows how increased depths of cut that are possible within specific, narrow bands of spindle speed. Sometimes a deeper cut is possible at a higher speed than where the process is currently running.
— The best-performing speeds for a given machining process often do not correspond to machining handbook values.
— Your process might actually deliver better tool life, surface finish and/or metal removal rate if you increase the speed rather than reduce it.
After watching Dr. Schmitz’s presentation, see an example of turning up the speed in this video, and read about how one shop is applying this phenomenon to realize the most efficient performance from its own machine tools.blog comments powered by Disqus
