Video: Horizontal Profiler For Aerospace Machining

An alternative to the typical profiler design, this machine saves labor by allowing chips to fall out of the way.


Finishing A Pocket Floor In Titanium

Machining animation from Boeing illustrates effective techniques for titanium workpieces. This simulation also shows finishing of the floor of the pocket.


Finishing Walls In Titanium

Machining animation from Boeing illustrates effective techniques for titanium workpieces. This video shows material machined out of the corners prior to finishing.


Plunge-And-Sweep For Finishing Corners

Machining animation from Boeing illustrates effective techniques for titanium workpieces.


Video: Finish-Milling Titanium With A 20-Flute End Mill

A tool with many flutes can be effective for achieving a productive metal removal rate in titanium, where speed and chip load are constrained. See how quickly the chips accumulate in this video.


Optimal Milling Strategy For Entering Material From The Side

These animations show why an arc in the same direction as tool rotation is effective. The strategy is relevant for entering material from the edge, as well as for pocketing.


Video: 56-Percent Productivity Increase By Reducing Chatter

The video compares a milling pass that chatters to one that is stable. Because the stable speed permits greater depth of cut, productivity increases.


More Large Crankshaft Machining

A complement to the turn-mill footage, this video clip shows a turning operation for a massive crankshaft.


Video: Basics of Thin Wall Machining

To mill thin walls in aluminum using fast light cuts, machine on alternating sides of the wall all the way down, jumping the wall with each new pass.


Through-Spindle Dust Collection For Composites And Graphite

A vacuum system for the machining center draws particulate through the center of the tool.
