Active Chipbreaker Improves Aluminum Turning
IMTS 2018: Lach Diamond Inc.’s 3D-Active active chipbreaker is beneficial for both rough and finish turning of aluminum.
Designed for turning aluminum alloys, the 3D-Active active chipbreaker from Lach Diamond Inc. is suitable for both rough machining and fine finishing applications. Whereas CO-type chipbreakers redirect chips, the active chipbreaker is designed to guide chips with a cutting depth (ap) of 0.01 mm. The cutting depth can be increased up to the maximum length of the cutting edge.
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
