End Mills Enable Trochoidal Milling, Fine Finishing
IMTS 2018: YG-1 Tool Co.’s V7PlusA series of end mills features four-flute and six-flute models.
YG-1 Tool Co. will display the V7PlusA series of end mills, which features four- and six-flute models, and the Titanox series, which offers four- and five-flute models that provide better performance in heavy cutting, trochoidal milling and fine finishing, according to the company.
The six-flute models from the V7PlusA series offer improved cutting geometry, making them more applicable to trochoidal and peel milling. For heavier cuts, the four-flute models provide variable-helix and unequal pitch design, which helps to eliminate vibration.
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.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
