Toyoda to Host Seminar at YG-1's North Carolina Facility
The lunch learning seminar will focus on prolonging tool life and maintaining accuracy when machining tough metals using YG-1’s cutting tools and Toyoda’s Stealth 1165 VMC.
JTEKT Toyoda Americas (Arlington Heights, Illinois) will hold a lunch learning seminar at YG-1’s Cutting Tools Tech Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event March 22, 2018, will compare modern milling techniques to age-old methods of metal removal on 15-4pm and titanium.
YG-1’s Charlotte location is home to Toyoda’s Stealth 1165 C-frame VMC for research and learning. YG-1’s engineers have tested solid carbide and high strength steel (HSS) cutting tools from its latest line to develop performance processes that prolong tool life and maintain accuracy in machining tough metals.

While aluminum molds are commonly used to create prototypes or to serve as stopgap bridge tooling, they are starting to receive greater attention for production work. This shop’s approach to creating aluminum molds in one day to three weeks is the same for each of these situations.
Though it won’t replace high speed machining, Boeing sees “low speed machining” as a viable supplement to higher-rpm machines. Using new tools and techniques, a shop’s lower-rpm machining centers can realize much more of their potential productivity in milling aluminum aircraft parts.
Milling complex forms in hardened tool steel involves more than just fast, light cuts, says this maker of medical-related injection molds. Here are some of the ingredients of an effective hard milling process.
