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.
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.
Hole Making: Combination Tools
This video demonstrates hole making. Hole making often involves sequential operations such as drill-then-tap. Combination tools that perform these operations simultaneously can eliminate tool changes, saving cycle time. Many combination tools ca...
Video: Helical Interpolation Vs. Drilling
A machining center able to maintain precise control at high feed rates makes it practical to machine holes through helical milling as an alternative to drilling.
Video: Micromilling With a Long Tool
This video clip illustrates micromilling at a high tool L:D ratio.
