Video: Milling Titanium 6-4 Efficiently Without a Heavy Machine

This video of machining titanium at a fast metal removal rate shows the effect of constant-engagement-angle milling.

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 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: 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.

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.

Video: Understanding The Role Of L:D Ratio In Micromachining

When milling with tiny tools, changing the length-to-diameter ratio can significantly change the cutting parameters it is possible to achieve.

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.
