Relieved end mills and pre-machining of corners are two important considerations for accurate pocket machining in hard steel.
The engineering of this line of small end mills brings out both the challenges and opportunities in milling hard-to-machine materials on a micro scale.
By adding a five-axis waterjet/milling machine, its biggest autoclave and a more expansive lay-up room, Royal Engineered Composites is positioning itself to win larger-scale aerospace work it sees on the horizon.
In difficult-to-machine metals, when a pocket or similar deep feature is milled in successively deeper Z-axis levels, oxidation and chemical reaction can affect the tool at the upper surface level of each cut. The solution: Change the axial depth of cut for each pass.
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
