What is successful face milling?
Face milling is the most common milling operation, and can be performed using a wide range of different tools. Cutters with a 45º entering angle are most frequently used, but round insert cutters, square shoulder cutters, and side and face mills are also used for certain conditions. Be sure to choose the right cutter for the operation, for optimal productivity (see information on choice of tools below).
What is successful high-feed milling?
When machining aluminum, and sometimes when machining cast iron with CBN or ceramic inserts, cutting speeds of more than 1,000 m/min can be used, which result in a very high table feed, vf. This type of machining is called High-Speed Machining (HSM).
In milling short-chipping materials, such as gray cast iron, a face milling cutter with an extra-close pitch can be used, resulting in high table feed. In HRSA materials where cutting speed is normally low, an extra-close pitch results in a high table feed.
