Improving Milling Accuracy

VIDEO. How you use the machining center is just as important as the quality of the machine itself. This tutorial covers machining center leveling, alignment and temperature—as well as toolchange and setup procedures.


Video: Automatic Part Verification Through Reference Comparison

The machining center in this automated production process inspects its own work and updates its own positioning. Probing a known, traceable reference makes this possible.


Video: Grouping HMCs For Greater Efficiency

VIDEO. In a lean machining facility, grouping horizontal machining centers close together allows a small number of operators to use the machines efficiently.


Video: Laser Tool Probing For Productivity And Accuracy

The ability to measure tool offsets while the tool is spinning can improve both the accuracy and performance of the process in various ways.


Video: Linear Motor Micromachining Center

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


Micro-Turned and Micro-Milled Workpiece

Video captured with a microscope shows micromachined part.


50-Micron Milled Channels

Video captured with a microscope shows that a full-scale machining center is capable of micro-size milling work.


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: Horizontal Profiler For Aerospace Machining

An alternative to the typical profiler design, this machine saves labor by allowing chips to fall out of the way.


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.
