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.
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.
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 Top-Cut VAR is a variable helix carbide end mill designed to be used in a wide range of materials and cutting strategies. This video shows a ½” diameter Top-Cut VAR milling at full depth in 4140 material using a trochoidal milling strategy and then a finishing pass. The Top-Cut VAR is the most economical milling solution for today’s high paced manufacturing environment.
Instructional animation showing how the thread forming process works. The video demonstrates how material is displaced rather than cut and the slight “fish mouth” that is formed at the crest of each thread. Formed threads are stronger than cut threads and the tapping time is less.
