Metal Cutting main parameters

applications-1-1

ae    radial penetration [mm]
ap    axial penetration [mm]
n     Toodle rotation speed [rpm]
fz    feed rate [mm/min]

Slot Milling

applications-2

Slot diameter is equal to end mill diameter.
In case of deep slotting, reduce feed rate to minimum.
Prefer low axial penetration – ae.

Side Milling

applications-3

The radial recommended depth ae
should be at most 10% of the end
mill diameter.
Always prefer low cutting depth
and high feed rate.

Face Milling

applications-4

The radial depth ae should be less then 20% of the end mill diameter.
The axial depth ap should be less then 10% of the end mill diameter.
Decrease ae and ap, increases feed rate.

Pocket Milling

applications-5
Small axial and radial penetration (ae, ap), high feed rate. Reduce feed rate during corner milling procedure.

Profile Milling

applications-6

The radial depth ae should be less then 2% of the end mill diameter.
The axial depth ap should be less then 1% of the end mill diameter.
Decrease ae and ap, increases feed rate.

Ramp Milling

applications-7

Extremely difficult application.
Reduce feed rate to minimum.
Radial penetration is equal to end mill diameter. Change axial penetration according to the application needs.

Drilling

applications-8

High axial loads during drilling application.
Increase feed rate gradually.

Thread Milling

applications-9

Thread production according CNC programing.
