Pocketing Cutter Offers Extreme Helical Ramp Entry
IMTs 2018: SwiftCarb’s RampMill is designed for high material removal rates and short cycle times.
End Mill’s Truncated Radius Avoids Wear
SwiftCarb offers its XT7 RampMill seven-flute end mill, with an end geometry that enables helical ramp engagement to 8 degrees in steel and exotic metals.
Corner-Rounding Inserts Available in Metric Radii Sizes
SwiftCarb now offers additional metric radii sizes in its Superbee line of indexable corner-rounding inserts.
When Spindle Speed is a Constraint
Though it won’t replace high speed machining, Boeing sees “low speed machining” as a viable supplement to higher-rpm machines. Using new tools and techniques, a shop’s lower-rpm machining centers can realize much more of their potential productivity in milling aluminum aircraft parts.
The Promise of "High Cube" Machining
Tool paths and a new tool design provide an alternative to high speed machining for achieving high metal removal rates in hard metals on lighter-duty machines.
