What is FF-Ti Machining?
When cutting hard-resistant alloys such as Ti-6Al-4V on big machines with over 1,000 Nm of torque, the strategy is pretty simple. Open a hole with a fast-feed cutter or a large-sized drill and then use a porcupine cutter to cut the main pocket.
But what about other-sized machines? Here, the limited allowed cutting force and thrust of axis feed put a stop to the strategies we can use. However, an FF-Ti strategy can help maximise the performance on these machines.
