Watch this video taken at Autodesk’s Boston Technology Center. We teamed up with Autodesk to test out our High Feed End Mills in 4140 Steel on their Haas VF5SS. We were able to achieve 550 SFM, 4,202 RPM and 428 IPM!
Designed for high feed applications, Helical’s fully stocked offering of High Feed End Mills take advantage of chip thinning with a specifically engineered end profile for optimal tool engagement and reduced cutting forces. The milling technique for these tools allows for drastically increased feed rates to maximize chip thickness and keep radial forces low.
