THREAD PRODUCTION FOR CHALLENGING, SAFETY-CRITICAL AEROSPACE PARTS

Complex materials such as Inconel, nickel-based superalloys, Monel, titanium, 420 stainless steel, and more are increasingly being used in aerospace part manufacture. Threading these tough materials can pose challenges, so having the right thread mills for the job is key to success.

A CLOSER LOOK AT 5-AXIS MACHINING WITH CIRCLE SEGMENT END MILLS

Reducing cycle times and achieving a superior surface finish are two key goals when 5-Axis machining. Manufacturers in aerospace, medical and automotive, die/ mold, and many other industries that machine parts traditionally with a ball nose end mill have access to a powerful alternative: Circle Segment End Mills (also known as Conical Barrel Cutters). Increased tool life, superb finishes, and significantly reduced cycle times are all easily achieved when using Circle Segment End Mills. Attend this session to gain a solid understanding of this highly productive milling option including the following overview: Circle Segment Tools Defined Tool Types and Applications CAM Software Requirement Why Choose Circle Segment over Ball Mills or Conventional Finishing Strategies (and when not to) Real-Life Application Examples SPEAKER: Evan Duncanson, Milling Applications Specialist, EMUGE-FRANKEN USA

Enhancing Accuracy in Mold & Die Applications

This webinar covers:

  • Achieving high-quality surface finishes with hyperMILL’s high precision surface mode by machining directly to the surface instead of an “approximated mesh” and applying the CAM software’s smooth overlap capability which minimizes witness marks at the blending of adjoining part features.
  • Utilizing the GROB G550a 5-Axis capabilities to properly orient and consistently maintain the EMUGE-FRANKEN Multi-Cut Duplex End Mill in the cut, while extending tool life.
  • Strategies for maximizing the efficiency of the machining process with hyperMILL’s auto-indexing function to automatically generate multiple 3+2 segments as an alternative to 5-Axis.
  • How to use shorter, smaller diameter tools for more aggressive machining by combining GROB’s rigid cross-slide design and long Z-Axis stroke with hyperMILL’s 5-Axis rest machining strategy, and EMUGE’s rigid FPC tool holder.
  • Tips for optimizing the workflow within multiple application stages by using process probing strategies.

Deep Cavity and Gun Drill Machining

This workshop presents a collaboration of GROB Systems, OPEN MIND Technologies, and EMUGE-FRANKEN for the demonstration of deep cavity and gun drilling applications. During this event, GROB’s 400mm pallet, horizontal 5-axis machining center, the G350, will demonstrate how difficult deep cavity and gun drilling applications can be made easily with GROB’s unique machine kinematics. OPEN MIND will highlight the application of conical barrel (Circle Segment) cutters for effective surface finishing, in-process probing, and our innovative deep hole drilling processes. EMUGE-FRANKEN will showcase Circle Segment cutters and FPC milling holders for high-performance machining.
