In high speed machining of hard steels, heat has a plasticizing effect that can benefit the cut. This effect is basic to high speed machining in die/mold applications. In the video from Expert Technical Training, animation illustrates the effect of heat in conventional milling and how this contributes to work hardening, versus the helpful effect of heat in climb milling at faster spindle speeds and feed rates.

    A job shop that specializes in hard milling shows why this technique is becoming indispensable for mold manufacturers. Hard milling allows mold components to be machined in the hardened state, thus skipping several expensive and time-consuming processes such as electrical discharge machining and hand polishing. Hard milling requires a certain type of machining center, tool holding system and programming software. The requirements for each of these elements are explained.
