Dial Down or Dial Up?

Vibration analysis may be the machining center’s missing piece. If you haven’t performed this analysis on your high speed machine, you probably don’t know what the machine can do.


The Promise of "High Cube" Machining

Tool paths and a new tool design provide an alternative to high speed machining for achieving high metal removal rates in hard metals on lighter-duty machines.


When to Mill Keeps Changing

Technology improvements steadily expand the range of tool and die parts that justify high speed machining.


What Is The Right Way To Become An Aerospace Shop?

This Atlanta shop succeeded at becoming an aircraft-industry parts supplier. The lessons of its success have a lot to do with commitment and enthusiasm.


The Case For Constant Velocity

Constant Velocity Technology uses high speed computer hardware and creative algorithms to enable machine tools to achieve fast, consistent feed rates across complicated 3D surfaces.


No Need For Speed

In this shop, high speed machining makes sense at 4,000 rpm. While the disciplines the shop put in place made a new 15,000-rpm profiler dramatically more productive, high speed machining would have remained valuable even if the new machine never cam...


High Speed Machining ... Without The Speed

Axial chip thinning is often associated with high speed machining, but this shop uses the same effect to increase metal removal rate with a standard-size end mill run on a moderate-speed machine.


Detecting and Correcting Unbalance in Toolholders for High Speed Machining

This white paper from American Hofmann Corporation examines the relationship between unbalance and toolholders used in high speed machining centers. The paper looks at sources of unbalance, effects of unbalance, correcting the unbalance and determin...


High Speed Machining Without The Fast Spindle

Relying on axial chip thinning lets a larger-diameter tool realize some of the benefits of high speed machining even if the machine's spindle speed is low.


From Mold Making To Mold Manufacturing

Pro Mold had to change its entire shop culture to make the move to “net machining.” The experience made the company stronger.
