A demonstration of EMUGE end mills in P20 tool steel using traditional and updated milling strategies. Finishing a surface with a standard ball end mill strategy and the new EMUGE Circle Segment strategy, showing a 90% cycle time decrease with an improved finish. Roughing a pocket with the standard Multi-Cut roughing strategy & a new Jet-Cut Trochoidal strategy with chip breaker. The Jet-Cut Trochoidal is used to finish both pockets. Roughing a pocket with a Top-Cut VAR with & without radial chip thinning.
This is a product view of an Emuge Jet Cut End Mill Speed cutting at 3X D depth using their FPC tool holder in a Haas DM2 milling center. Key points - 3X diameter depth cutting, great tool holder that stops the tool from being pulled out under heavy roughing and the fast back feed rate of the DM2. Again matching the right tools with Mastercam Dynamic tool paths will reduce your cycle time, extend tool life and make you more money.
OPEN MIND developed its innovative 'tangent plane machining' strategy for 5-axis machining centers using hyperMIL CAM software, specifically for machining the planes of steep surfaces and bottom surfaces. This strategy incorporates large step down finishing passes. The video shows the concept employed when using Emuge Circle Segment Cutters designed for 5-axis applications.
Circle segment cutters are a family of carbide form cutters specifically designed for 5-axis milling. This video demonstrates the concept of 5-axis milling with 1. BARREL SHAPE, 2. LENS SHAPE, 3. OVAL FORM and 4. TAPER FORM cutters from Emuge. This new milling concept requires proper CAM software. Emuge has partnership agreements with many CAM suppliers and can help explain the application for proper results.
The possibilities of producing ultra-fine finished medical components such as knee joints is demonstrated using a Hermle 5-Axis CNC machining center and an ALu-Cut ball nose carbide end mill. A 10.0 mm standard design end mill is shown.
This video provides a cycle time comparison between the indexable Gigant-IC, 3-teeth modular system verses a 5-teeth design. The thread is a 2"-4-1/2 UNC thread. Both styles of the Gigant-IC are successful in this application but the cycle time savings is significant with the 5-teeth design.
This is Mastercam's dynamic toolpath, cutting A2 tool steel with an EMUGE 4XD 16mm Trochoidal series carbide end mill. The holder is an Emuge FPC chuck that is available with an anti-pullout pin-lock system. Cut on a Haas UMC 750 CNC machining center.
The versatility of the Multi-Cut end mill is demonstrated with six separate milling strategies using a single Multi-Cut Duplex carbide end mill. A slotting cut is shown using an; HPC High Performance path, an HSC High Speed milling path, a Trochoidal milling strategy, a 3-D Trochoidal Slot cut and a Plunge Roughing strategy. Lastly, a 3D Contour milling path is shown.
This video shows the possibilities of modern 5 axis milling released by Hermle, EMUGE and hyperMILL. This masterpiece of an aluminum high heel shoe model is a joint project by Hermle, EMUGE and OPEN MIND and was shown at the 2014 IMTS Show.
The inner workings of a Speedsynchro unit are shown in detail.
