    Tapping Speeds and Feeds

    thats the problem, 1/4-20 is 20 threads per inch = 200 rpm 10 ipm, 3/8-16 = 160 rpm 10 ipm also are you sure you have rigid tapping?

    Tapping Speeds and Feeds

    depends on machine and size of tap. feed is dependent on speed and threads per inch also the quality and type of tap (spiral point, spiral flute, etc) on our haas it was recommended under 300rpm

    Exit/entry on an elipse

    or try lead to center, if you turn off gauge protection it might work
  4. we use Emuge thread mills and they supply the program written in incremental G91, so i just copy the drill operation for position and paste the thread path

    'WINNING' with a Fadal

    this was 20 yrs ago now,there was a line in the cavity every inch or so, finally figured out it was when the oil pumped every 10 minutes , op put a indicator on it and it was almost .0005

    'WINNING' with a Fadal

    we had fadals that when we did cavity machining you could see lines where the auto lube kicked on, it actually raised the table

    Changes in MasterCAM 2019

    to mill a slot use pocket, select point as your first selection then chain your slot then under lead in/out click use entry point
  11. we get a few jobs where it's specked to roll tap
  12. sounds like he's trying to get us to do his homework, or they are questions for a job interview
  13. we use Emuge single tooth and full profile cutters, very pleased with them, they will even give you programs with speeds and feeds for any material. was milling 6-32 in inconel and it was programmed with control comp and the op forgot cc ended up cutting a 1/4-32 in one shot from a .113 drilled hole and didn't even break
  14. you could try flowline
