Well we got a NEW tool in today and just wanted to pass along how it is working.
Cutting Hot Rolled A-36 Steel and Big Kaiser teck said from 300 to 800 sfm and around .0025 to .006 chip load dont have the paper work here right now but think that is what they said to try.
Working out Great at 1220 RPM with 20 ipm feed in A-36 and .190 deep .
After cutter gets a Full load on it very nice and almost no sound at all ya almost start to think your cutting T6 alum with this cutter.
Looking for some info getting some recutting of the chip with this tool running on a Mitsubishi MH4A horizontal mill with coolent and spindle coolent running at the same time. Chips should be washing away very nice but we still get a chip now and then.
Would it not recut the chip if that small center was cut out and then go to Conventional Milling so chip wont get recut on side of part ?
Other than that recut problem Happy as can be with this tool so far will have to see how inserts hold up.
