We are making test cuts using Emuge's Jet Cut 3/8" diameter end mill cutting at 1.5X D depth (.512" deep) in 4140 Pre Hardened steel on a Haas DM2 milling center. We are cutting 5 areas that are X dim 3.0" x Y dim .625". The tool path is Mastercam Dynamic Peel mill and the CNC machine is a Haas DM2. We are increasing the width of cut of each area along with adjusting the SFM and chip load. After each cut we captured several chips and viewed them under a microscope to analyze the color and shape.
Emuge Hard Cut Torus End Mill using a dynamic toolpath from Mastercam to cut a pocket in D2 tool steel hardened to 62Rc with Emuge Cold Air Nozzle.
The Cut&Form end mills of FRANKEN`s product line “Expert” are characterized by an unique tool geometry. The Cut & Form carbide end mill enables the user to combine the finishing milling and polishing operations in one step.
A demonstration of EMUGE end mills in P20 tool steel using traditional and updated milling strategies. Finishing a surface with a standard ball end mill strategy and the new EMUGE Circle Segment strategy, showing a 90% cycle time decrease with an improved finish. Roughing a pocket with the standard Multi-Cut roughing strategy & a new Jet-Cut Trochoidal strategy with chip breaker. The Jet-Cut Trochoidal is used to finish both pockets. Roughing a pocket with a Top-Cut VAR with & without radial chip thinning.
This is a product view of an Emuge Jet Cut End Mill Speed cutting at 3X D depth using their FPC tool holder in a Haas DM2 milling center. Key points - 3X diameter depth cutting, great tool holder that stops the tool from being pulled out under heavy roughing and the fast back feed rate of the DM2. Again matching the right tools with Mastercam Dynamic tool paths will reduce your cycle time, extend tool life and make you more money.
OPEN MIND developed its innovative 'tangent plane machining' strategy for 5-axis machining centers using hyperMIL CAM software, specifically for machining the planes of steep surfaces and bottom surfaces. This strategy incorporates large step down finishing passes. The video shows the concept employed when using Emuge Circle Segment Cutters designed for 5-axis applications.
