Webinar: Increase Milling Output on Your Existing Machine

It is not always the strength of the tool or the power of the machine that limits your depth of cut. In many cases, the limitation is the tendency to vibrate. Learn how to mill more productively by selecting spindle speeds tailored to your machine’s...


In the Groove for 50 Years

It’s an American success story. In 1964, William and Hazel Kaiser founded a company to produce and market Thinbit, an innovative line of grooving tools. At first, the business operated out of the couple’s attic and garage. Fifty years later, the Kai...


Milling Hard-to-Machine Materials on a Micro Scale

The idea of a tool that effectively controls heat with a special grade of carbide, a new coating and internal channels that deliver cooling through ports in the shank where the milling flutes begin, is worth a look.


Video: Installing a Right Angle Head on a Machine’s Toolchanger

This video steps you through the process for installing a standard right-angle head on a machine’s tool changer.


Finishing Fillets

Consider these finish-machining techniques that can enable you to maximize material removal rates prior to completing accurate, tight-radii fillets.


When to Waterjet, When to Mill

A composite parts manufacturer in Nebraska recently installed a combined five-axis waterjet/milling machine to position itself to win large-scale aerospace work it sees on the horizon.


VIDEO: Polygonal Turning

Here are links to two video samples of a cool process for turned parts that has the potential for considerable time and part cost reductions, versus milling operations, when producing radii.


What’s Best for Boring Titanium?

In a joint research effort, Kaiser Precision Tooling and Blaser Swisslube searched for a combination of metalworking fluid and indexable insert that show the best results when boring titanium. The results underscore the importance of controlling vib...


Alter the Axial Depth

In difficult-to-machine metals, when a pocket or similar deep feature is milled in successively deeper Z-axis levels, oxidation and chemical reaction can affect the tool at the upper surface level of each cut. The solution: Change the axial depth of...


More Tools for Swiss-Types

Iscar is expanding its line of square-shank toolholders for Swiss-type automatics and CNC machine tools by adding new tools for high pressure coolant and also tools without the internal coolant feature.
