THE BENEFIT OF HIGH-FEED MILLS
These tools are run nearly full-width at low cutting depths and the high metal removal rates are attained without high-speed spindles, and do not require overly rigid fixturing.
The high feed rates are achieved through the unique insert geometry, which requires special programming techniques.
In this video, Sandvik explains the benefits and requirements of High-Feed mills in greater detail.
Programming High-Feed millsHigh-Feed mills require an unusual lead-in move. I created the video above to show you how you can easily achieve this recommended lead-in move using NX CAM.
If are considering the addition of High-Feed mills to your tool library or if you aren’t achieving the insert life you were hoping for, Acuity can help to optimize toolpath by implementing the manufacturer’s recommendations for these mills.
Thanks for watching.
