The 12,000-rpm spindle has a continuous torque of 525 Nm and a peak value up to 1,002 Nm. The dynamics of the machine allow fast movements for a trochoidal type of cutting.
What we do first:
- Open a hole with a D63 mm index drill.
- Use a D50 porcupine mill and open the pocket with an FF-Ti type of toolpath.
Using this type of strategy, we can produce one of these pockets in Ti-6Al-4V with dimensions of 460 x 250 mm in just 49 minutes.
- Cutting speed: over 50 metres/minute
- Fz: 0.12 mm/tooth
Average MRR: 150 cc/minute
