Another type of tool engages comparatively more of the work to facilitate larger stepovers for improved efficiency and surface finish in five-axis finishing operations.
Although round cutting inserts have a well-deserved reputation for efficiently roughing contoured geometry, they sometimes work best when they’re not perfectly round.
Milling deep grooves generates tons of chips that are sometimes hard to clear. This internal coolant device provides an innovative solution to this challenge.
A short video illustrates the differences between conventional machining with multiple shallow passes versus high-efficiency machining with a tool designed for deeper cuts.
A system for turning oil-industry face grooves on a machining center uses an adjustable toolholder along with an NC code generator for creating the unusual path.
The strength of part-off tools is shown in demonstrations whereby they part off a railroad rail and sledge hammer head. Talk about significant interrupted cuts…
This video steps you through the process for installing a standard right-angle head on a machine’s tool changer.
The process seen here uses trochoidal tool paths and cryogenic cooling
Watch this short video from Sandvik Coromant to learn about the advantages of thread milling.
Metal removal rate is high and the cut is dry. See other basic tips for milling with ceramics.
