Pocketing Steel - .030” DOC with Toroid End Mill and RHINO-CARB™ Inserts from Dapra

 

This video demonstrates Dapra's 1" Toroid End Mill executing a pocketing routine in steel. The material is 4140PH (30 Rc), and the machine tool used is a Fadal 4020 with a 40-taper spindle. 
 
This particular pocketing routine utilizes a smaller IC insert (3/8") at a fine pitch for more feed capability at a lighter depth of cut. This method is usually preferred on lighter-duty (40-taper, linear ways) machines, as it allows the machine to function within its designed capabilities. 
 
The parameters for this video are:
Pocketing Steel - 0.030" DOC
1" Toroid End Mill - 3 Flute
H13 Material
700 SFM (2700 RPM)
.022" IPT (180 IPM)
.030" DOC
60% WOC
40 Taper VMC

  • Successful Application Of Ceramic Inserts

    Applying ceramic inserts is not a simple substitution of one cutting tool material for another. There are significant process considerations that shops should examine carefully in order to realize performance and tool life expectations from ceramic inserts. Here's a look at some of the ways they are used.

  • Choose The Best Drill Point Geometry

    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.

  • Rigid Tapping--Sometimes You Need A Little Float

    One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
