The Mini-Feed cutters and inserts in Dapra’s Rhino-Feed line are designed for increased feed rates in light depth-of-cut applications. The line is optimized for cuts ranging from 0.5" to 1" in diameter at a maximum depth of 0.03". The inserts feature three usable edges.
 
End mills and modular heads are available with one, two or three flutes. The inserts feature an 8-mm inscribed circle (IC) and operate at a light to moderate feed per tooth (FPT), which makes them well-suited for detail roughing and high-speed machining, especially in small machines, the company says. The positive geometry enables the cutters and inserts to cut virtually all materials.
 
The Rhino-Feed line adjusts feed rates to compensate for the significant chip thinning that occurs when an extreme lead angle is used during high-feed milling. Mid-Feed and Heavy-Feed cutters and inserts are also available for diameters as large as 4" and maximum depths of cut measuring 0.06".

Can Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?

With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
