Circle-Segment Cutters Remove More Material in Fewer Passes
Eastec 2017: Available from Emuge, circle-segment cutters are designed to remove more material in fewer passes in five-axis machining.
Available from Emuge, circle-segment cutters are designed to remove more material in fewer passes in five-axis machining. The tools feature unique forms with large cutting edge radii to provide deeper axial cutting during pre-finishing and finishing operations. Available geometries are said to be ideal for moldmaking applications and for machining turbine blades, impellers and blisks.
Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.
Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.
Applying ceramic inserts is not a simple substitution of one cutting tool material for another. There are significant process considerations that shops should examine carefully in order to realize performance and tool life expectations from ceramic inserts. Here's a look at some of the ways they are used.
