The old zero-rake cutoff tool generated such high cutting forces that it distorted the workpiece.
The cutoff tool he was using kept the sleeve geometry barely within squareness tolerance and with a barely acceptable "glazed" finish.
The new model 42-9LSS 4-axis CNC 1 5/8" bar machining with sub-spindle that utilizes three-sided tool platen featuring 9 live tools (3 on each side), 6 stationary drill holders, 8 turning holders plus a separate cutoff tool holder for complete parts production at one location.
The cycle starts with the cutoff tool in its furthest advanced position: directly in front of the guide bushing, with the cutting edge just past the center line of the barstock.
Four tools are used to produce it: a grooving tool, cutoff tool, a 1/4" dog bone, and an insert turning tool.
