Notes on Machining Methods

  • How to choose an appropriate diameter tool.

Machine plain surfaces with a larger tool and corner radii with smaller diameter cutters.

  • Relation of the cutter diameter and corner R size of work material

A guide for the smallest possible work material radius that can be machined is from 0.6 ─0.7 x diameter of the tool.

* Adjust cutting conditions according to the set up.
* Smaller work material corner radii (only >0.5 x cutter φ) may be possible by reducing the width of cut, speed and pick feed.
