Video: Faster Micro-Finishes for Micromachining

 Smooth finish comes from balanced cutting parameters, as this video explains.


Video: Linear Motor Micromachining Center

Video shows the smooth, quiet, rapid motion characteristic of effective micromilling.


Video: Five-Axis Milling On Linear-Motor Machining Center

Linear motors take the place of ballscrews on this machine performing high speed cutting of aluminum at a job shop near Atlanta.


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.


Video: Basics of Thin Wall Machining

To mill thin walls in aluminum using fast light cuts, machine on alternating sides of the wall all the way down, jumping the wall with each new pass.


Video: Trochoidal Milling

This approach to rough milling replaces straight lines with “curlicue” moves of constant radius.


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.
