The Promise of "High Cube" Machining
Tool paths and a new tool design provide an alternative to high speed
machining for achieving high metal removal rates in hard metals on lighter-duty machines.
Software For High Speed Machining
Surfware demonstrates three-axis high speed machining using its TrueMill technology by machining titanium 6AL4V. The demonstration is performed at 115 ipm with a 1/2" diameter end mill at 1" depth of cut to remove material at the rate of 4 cubic inches per minute.
