End Mill Performs Roughing and Finishing
Emuge-Franken Top-Cut roughing and finishing end mill is designed for high performance and increased tool life.
Emuge-Franken Top-Cut roughing and finishing end mill is designed for high performance and increased tool life. The carbide end mill is capable of performing both roughing and finishing operations, decreasing vibration and reducing the number of tools and changes needed. Variable helix angles are said to eliminate harmonic oscillation to minimize vibrations and improve surface qualities. The carbide substrate combined with a high-heat resistant TiALN coating and optimized micro-geometry promotes long tool life even in diverse materials. The end mills are available in a variety of inch and metric sizes, lengths and types.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
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.
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
