Video: 80-Insert Crankshaft Cutter

This video footage shows a massive crankshaft being machined on a turn-mill machine using an 80-insert cutter nearly 5-inches in diameter.

Large turn-mill machines are being used to produce massive parts such as crankshafts for ships and trains. This video shows a side-milling operation for such a crankshaft being performed on a Weingärtner machine. The cutting tool used in the turn-milling pass is a 4.72-inch-diameter milling cutter from Austrian cutting tool supplier LMT Boehlerit that has approximately 80 inserts.
