Can Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number of flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flu...
Four Companies Partner to Deliver Optimized Tooling Solution
Toolholder, tool and retention knob are all shipped as an assembled, pre-balanced unit that is tailored to the dynamics of the user’s particular Okuma machining center, allowing that machine to achieve something near to the smoothest and mo...
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.
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...
