Video: High Speed Milling—900 ipm
Demonstation illustrates the kind of metal removal rate that is possible in aluminum at dynamically stable speeds.
What does "jerk" refer to, and where does it fit into machine performance?
Years of trial and error combined with the appropriate machining technology allow this company to produce custom parts made of alumina, zirconia, boron nitride and other advanced ceramic materials. One example of key machining technology is a five-axis machining center used exclusively to produce the complex, tightly toleranced geometry that fire-hardened workpieces require.
With so many choices in five-axis machining technology, how do you know which is best for your shop? First, consider the parts. Then, look at existing processes and potential five-axis benefits.
