Circle segment cutters are a family of carbide form cutters specifically designed for 5-axis milling. This video demonstrates the concept of 5-axis milling with 1. BARREL SHAPE, 2. LENS SHAPE, 3. OVAL FORM and 4. TAPER FORM cutters from Emuge. This new milling concept requires proper CAM software. Emuge has partnership agreements with many CAM suppliers and can help explain the application for proper results.
The possibilities of producing ultra-fine finished medical components such as knee joints is demonstrated using a Hermle 5-Axis CNC machining center and an ALu-Cut ball nose carbide end mill. A 10.0 mm standard design end mill is shown.
The versatility of the Multi-Cut end mill is demonstrated with six separate milling strategies using a single Multi-Cut Duplex carbide end mill. A slotting cut is shown using an; HPC High Performance path, an HSC High Speed milling path, a Trochoidal milling strategy, a 3-D Trochoidal Slot cut and a Plunge Roughing strategy. Lastly, a 3D Contour milling path is shown.
This is Mastercam's dynamic toolpath, cutting A2 tool steel with an EMUGE 4XD 16mm Trochoidal series carbide end mill. The holder is an Emuge FPC chuck that is available with an anti-pullout pin-lock system. Cut on a Haas UMC 750 CNC machining center.
The inner workings of a Speedsynchro unit are shown in detail.
This video shows the possibilities of modern 5 axis milling released by Hermle, EMUGE and hyperMILL. This masterpiece of an aluminum high heel shoe model is a joint project by Hermle, EMUGE and OPEN MIND and was shown at the 2014 IMTS Show.
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.
A demonstration of the milling process for a turbine blade using a 5-Axis CNC machining center. An Emuge TiNox-Cut carbide end mill is used to rough out the part shape. The performance of a Circle Segment / Barrel Form carbide end mill is used to finish the blade is then contrasted to a traditional cutter path of a ball nose, Jet-Cut style carbide end mill.
A demonstration of a trochoidal milling in P20 tool steel material. The video shows a Series 2533L extra length (3xD) Trochiod Carbide End Mill being used as a roughing and super finishing tool in the same application. The chip breaking flute design allows the end mill to operate at full depth with minimal radial depth of cut. Chips are broken into smaller segments that are quickly evacuated.
The versatility of the Multi-Cut carbide end mill with a roughing flute profile is demonstrated in P20 tool steel. The video clip shows a slotting, periphery milling and pocket milling application with the same end mill. The center cutting, NR roughing flute profile allows for plunge and side milling at extremely high feed rates.
