The square milling cutters feature V bottom inserts and secure insert retention, enabling high-speed milling of aluminum alloys and other non-ferrous materials. The cutters ensure stability and efficiency in shouldering, slotting and profiling applications at elevated cutting speeds, the company says.
The use of lightweight, high-strength aluminum alloys is increasing across many industries to reduce environmental burdens. More specifically, the aerospace industry is using aluminum alloys for large aircraft components to meet weight reduction requirements for improved fuel efficiency.
For many shops, the decision comes down to a 4- or 12-foot-capacity magazine-style bar feeder. Here are some guidelines for choosing between them.
Some primary factors are often overlooked when considering how to justify the implementation of a bar feeder for turning operations.
Having strategies in place for managing chips is an important part of protecting the production process, from tool life to product quality.
