Laser Machine For Form Tool Chip Control
The DMG Lasertec 40 machine is used to cut various chip breaker shapes into custom form tools. The idea behind chip control is to design a chip breaker geometry that controls the length of a given chip or the direction of a continuous chip in such a way that bird nests can be eliminated. The ability to predict the behavior of a chip is based on numerous factors including the cutting data—feed, speed, depth of cut—as well as material.

Laser Simplifies Form Tool Chip Control
The creation of a 'bird nest' is a problem for any turning operation. These uncontrolled wads of chips tend to wreck havoc on tooling, equipment and continuous operations.
