Measurement Versus Experience in Finding Optimal Machining Parameters

When it comes to finding chatter-free cutting speeds, measurement is the faster way to go. An anecdote illustrates this.


Tungaloy’s Product Seminar Focuses on How to Reduce the Real Costs of Production

More than 1,050 products are included in the latest TungForce line, leveraging coatings and geometries to hit machining costs where it counts: speed.


Video: Accelerated Blisk Milling

CAM and cutting tool companies develop a process for machining a titanium bladed disk in less than half the conventionally expected cycle time.


Evacuation Plan

Milling deep grooves generates tons of chips that are sometimes hard to clear. This internal coolant device provides an innovative solution to this challenge.


Video: HEM Versus Conventional Machining

A short video illustrates the differences between conventional machining with multiple shallow passes versus high-efficiency machining with a tool designed for deeper cuts.


Video: Machining API Groove with “Spirograph” Tool Path

A system for turning oil-industry face grooves on a machining center uses an adjustable toolholder along with an NC code generator for creating the unusual path.


IMC Group President Says Best Tool Value Comes from Productivity

Only cutting tool productivity can reduce other factors affecting part cost. Jacob Harpaz made this point at a recent Ingersoll Cuttings Tools event in Cleveland.


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...


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.


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.
