High Speed Machining
High speed machining typically refers to making light milling passes at high spindle speed and feed rate to achieve a high metal removal rate. This practice can be effective for machining intricate core and cavity geometries in mold machining, and for quickly machining large, complex aircraft structural components out of solid blocks of aluminum.
Feature A manufacturer that is distinctive for its attention to in-cycle machining productivity describes its efforts to obtain efficiency improvements outside of the machining cycle. The shop’s primary tool is a simple, daily, graphical recap that illustrates when each machine tool was and was not making parts.
