Dapra high feed cutting 4140ph at 300-ipm.
(sponsored content) Video: High-Feed Cutting 4140PH at 300 IPM with RHINO-FEED Mid-Feed Shell Mill and Inserts from Dapra.
This video demonstrates Dapra's 2" RHINO-FEED 5-flute Shell Mill and inserts executing a Z-level roughing routine in steel. The material is 4140PH, and the machine tool used is a Fadal 4020 with a 40-taper spindle.
This routine uses Dapra’s mid-feed inserts from the new RHINO-FEED product line. The inserts are 3/8” IC and offer 4 usable edges. Outstanding metal removal rates are possible on lighter duty machines using this method.
The parameters for this video are:
2” RHINO-FEED Mid-Feed Shell Mill
550 SFM (1050 RPM)
.057" FPT (300 IPM)
Variable WOC up to 100%
40 Taper VMC
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
