In the Loupe TV: Introduction to High Feed End Mills

Join Harvey Performance Company National Applications Engineer Don Grandt in the fifth episode of In the Loupe TV: High Feed Mills.

A High Feed End Mill is a type of High-Efficiency Milling (HEM) tool with a specialized end profile that allows the tool to utilize chip thinning to have dramatically increased feed rates. These tools are meant to operate with an extremely low axial depth so that the cutting action takes place along the curved edge of the bottom profile. Join the “Cutting Tool Counselor,” Don Grandt, in episode 5 of In The Loupe TV to learn when to use a High Feed Mill and the benefits they can bring to your next job.

In the Loupe TV: Helix Angles

Join Harvey Performance Company National Applications Engineer Don Grandt in the fourth episode of In the Loupe TV: Helix Angles.

While many factors impact the outcome of a machining operation, one often overlooked factor is the cutting tool’s helix angle. The helix angle of a tool is measured by the angle formed between the centerline of the tool and a straight line tangent along the cutting edge. Tune into this episode of In the Loupe TV to learn about helix angles and what angle you should be opting for in your next CNC machining application.

In the Loupe TV: Material Removal Rate Triangle

Join Harvey Performance Company National Applications Engineer Don Grandt in the third episode of In the Loupe TV: The Material Removal Rate Triangle.

Material Removal Rate measures how much material is removed from a part in a given period of time. Every shop aims to create more parts faster, so they can maximize money made while also minimizing money spent. One of the first places machinists turn is to MRR, which encompasses Radial Depth of Cut (RDOC), Axial Depth of Cut (ADOC), and Inches Per Minute (IPM). If you’re aiming to boost your shop’s efficiency, increasing your MRR even minimally can result in significant gains. Tune into this episode of In the Loupe TV to learn how to maximize MRR and save time and money at the spindle.
