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

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.

  • Threading On A Lathe

    The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.

  • 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.
