IMTS Spark: The TRM3016 from Milltronics is a toolroom mill that offers travels of 30" × 16" × 20".
The TRM3016 from Milltronics is a toolroom mill that offers travels of 30" × 16" × 20". With a table capacity of 35.4" × 16", an 8,000-rpm Big-Plus ISO No. 40 spindle, and a 15-hp spindle motor, the TRM3016 fits many applications. It also features a 9000 DGI WindowsTM CNC control and “drop down” door openings that allow long part pass through to help accommodate oversize parts.
Milling complex forms in hardened tool steel involves more than just fast, light cuts, says this maker of medical-related injection molds. Here are some of the ingredients of an effective hard milling process.
Accuracy is not just inherent to the machine—it also depends on how the machine is used. Try these techniques to let a new or existing CNC machining center achieve its potential precision.
The recipe for best results is simple: Start with a rigid machine, add a high pressure through-the-spindle coolant system, then combine these with the right drill geometry plus the right speeds and feeds.
