Increasing Torque For A High Speed Spindle

Torque, not power, is the most important characteristic for determining the cutting performance of a spindle. Increasing spindle torque for a high speed machining center ultimately affects not only the choice of spindle but also the design of the ma...


Automating The Mold Shop

This shop produces dies and molds around the clock 7 days a week, yet most of the time no one is there.


High Speed Machining Of Dies And Molds (Revisited)

A new machine may not be needed— just changes in the process.


When Faster Is Better

A German mold maker expands operations from Europe to America on the wings of high speed machining.


High Speed And Torque: One Spindle Drive

Most metalcutting operations divide into one of two processing camps. First is the need to remove large volumes of material using high depth of cut and relatively slower feeds and speeds. On the other end of the spectrum is high speed machining, whi...


Better HSM For Big Parts

'High speed machining' is accepted and commonplace in many shops. HSM is so widely used, in fact, that its acceptance is beginning to affect the design of machine tools.


High Speed In Simultaneous Five-Axis Machining

In mold and die work, simultaneous five-axis machining is a proven technology, as is high speed machining (HSM). High speed simultaneous five-axis machining, however, is still a pioneering development.


Pushbutton Die Making

High speed milling let this automotive forging company reverse a decades-old practice and bring die making back in house.


The Starting Point

Speed is just the first step. Using that speed effectively may require changes to your assumptions about machining.


The Efficiency Effect

Using machining centers that might otherwise mill electrodes, this Minnesota mold shop does its cutting directly in steel. The streamlined process has exceeded expectations and yielded a striking increase in sales.
