Rough milling operations can take hours on large components and typically remove more than half the raw material by volume. Selecting the proper machining method for the component and machine tool creates a successful and stable system. The use of plunge roughing, commonly referred to as plunge milling, has grown recently as cutting tools that can handle the tough requirements of this machining method have become more readily available.
The ball end of a barrel cutter cleaning a corner feature, and then the barrel cutter quickly covers the surface.
Video highlights an innovative toolholder design that integrates special drive keys in the chuck and grooves in the tool shank to completely eliminate the creep and pull out of cutting tools typically associated with hard to machine materials.
Hydraulic chuck super slim types are ideal toolholders for precision finishing processes in confined areas with drills, reamers, ball mills, end mills, diamond reamers and grinding tools.
