Kyocera Unimerco Tooling has introduced its new MFH - High Feed Milling Cutter, which features an anti-vibration design for increased productivity in ramping and helical milling at high speeds.
CimatronE 10 offers a new Helical Milling strategy, which is especially useful for milling all around steep cavities or cores, especially in electrodes.
Next to it, an alternative technique based on ball helical milling is introduced for the hole making process.
We also use techniques, such as circular interpolation and helical milling, so we don't have to use large boring bars.
Hard milling applications in the moldmaking and tool and die industries, pocket milling, ramping, and helical milling are possible.
The design team at Caterpillar faced many challenges in creating this new engine block, including mastery of new, multi-million dollar, linear motor equipment; new machining methods for helical milling and threading; using double, right angle milling heads; and an inexperienced programmer with fewer than six months experience using PTC's Pro/ENGINEER.
The topics include cutting forces in helical milling processes, methods for evaluating uniformity in the lapping process, applying visualization in scientific computing technology, the numerical and flow-field simulation of acoustic levitation polishing, designing cold extrusion dies for precision gears, applying ultrasonic radiation forces, the impact of plate cylinder deformation on graphic quality, and the autonomous control of abrasive flow precision machining.
The Excelerator Mill uses Greenleaf's advanced indexable ceramic inserts for machining most hardened materials above 40 Hrc and nickel and cobalt-based super alloys, making hard milling applications in the moldmaking and tool & die industries, pocket milling, ramping, and helical milling possible, using the indexable ceramic inserts and the Excelerator Mills.
Especially on larger holes in one-off or short-run work, milling a hole from solid with helical milling often makes more sense than drilling it.
Using indexable ceramic inserts is now possible for pocket milling, ramping, helical milling, and hard milling in the mold and die industry.
