Ballnose End Mills for Ceramic, Carbide Inserts
Greenleaf Corporation’s Excelerator ballnose end mills use both ceramic and carbide inserts in the same qualified cutter bodies to increase performance, tool life and cutting action across a spectrum of materials. The insert geometry prevents excess tool pressure at high metal removal rates, and its strong edges shear material without smearing, the company says.
Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
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.
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
