Hi guys, I am about to cut a 17-4 ph part, condition hr1150. It has a few tab/tang arms that are about .25 thick about 3/4 long. I want to make sure not to put any unnecessary heat in the part while cutting. I was going to us a 2" Mitsubish AJX high feed but I am not sure if it will heat the material any more traditional cutters like the apx3000. I have used the AJX before but it was on a part that had no potential for tweaking and stressing. Please let me know what you all think.
Hello Guys, I'm machining a 1.25 wide slot 4.5 deep using a 1.0 high feed cutter. The first part of cutting the slot is full diameter of the tool but on the way back the radial depth of cut is .25 so I use the chip thinning formula and my increased my feed. The question I have is how do I get Mastercam to post that out, I don't want to manually go into the program and change the feed for every depth cut. I played with the High feed settings in Mastercam but I'm not getting the desired results, but it could be that I'm not using correct settings. Any ideas? TIA, Greg
