Video: The Role of Heat in High Speed Machining
In high speed machining of die/mold steels, the heat has a more beneficial effect than the role it plays in conventional cuts.
Video: Balancing Tools And Toolholders
This video provides both the argument and methodology for performing offline balancing of tool/toolholder assemblies for high speed machining centers.
Understanding Effective Diameter
VIDEO. On a ballnose end mill, the depth of cut determines the actual cutting diameter. This effect, along with the related concept of chip thinning, will influence the optimal choices of spindle speed and feed rate.
Video: Form Tools On CNC Lathes
Form tools are traditionally associated with non-CNC machines, but in certain applications they make sense on modern machines as well.
Video Profile: Lean Machining at Vanamatic
See how this Delphos, Ohio, screw machine shop has saved considerable time by making its process on the shop floor more lean.
Video: Laser Tool Probing For Productivity And Accuracy
The ability to measure tool offsets while the tool is spinning can improve both the accuracy and performance of the process in various ways.
Video: Retention Knob Tightening And Toolholder Deflection
This footage illustrates how the toolholder taper is measured in a test designed to capture the retention knob’s effect on the shape of the toolholder taper.
Thread Milling On A Tiny Scale
Machining internal threads in difficult materials is challenging, especially when hole diameters are small. Thread milling offers advantages for these applications that are important to consider.
Video: Faster Micro-Finishes for Micromachining
Smooth finish comes from balanced cutting parameters, as this video explains.
Video: Drilling 0.020-Inch Holes In Stainless Steel Aerospace Part
This footage on a small drilling machining also includes machining with full-size tools in the same cycle.
