Edmund Isakov, PhD, a well-respected expert on cutting tool theory and practice, is proposing a new formula for calculating the metal removal rates in turning operations. Dr. Isakov is a proponent of this formula because it factors in the diameter of the workpiece to yield more accurate results. The new formula will help manufacturing engineers make better decisions about productivity.

    To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.

    The many rules of programming CNC cutter radius compensation can make machining problems difficult to diagnose and correct. 

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
