Test of NIAGARA 3FL HP End mill for Aluminum

February 27, 2012, 11:02 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

Recenty ordered a 3Flute High Performance End Mill From NIAGARA.
Was very glad and slightly surprised that when punched in all of the endmill's data into my Calculator nothing broke down.I had a rason: At 5000RPM and 3/8" Deep slot cut. The feed came to around 92.0IPM. Chips were making this nice ringing noise that sounds like money.

The calculation was pretty much dead on.

Tapping Hardox Rc 45-50

February 27, 2012, 10:43 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

A need arouse to drill and tap lots of blind 1/4-20 holes in 3/4" thick hardox 45-50RC hard plate.

So if you ever need to do this use:

Tap hole: >0.202" or bigger.  5/8 deep.
Drill used: Tialn coated carbide drill.
S=1418 RPM
F=2.6 IPM
NO Peck, No Coolant

Renishaw OTS tool probe cycle for HAAS can set both length and diameter offsets.

Too bad there is no choice: it only puts absolute measured diameter of the tool into D- diameter offset and makes wear offset=0

But if your programming is done with the center of the cutter, then you actually only need the difference between actual and programmed diameters of the tool.

I.E.: When probing 5/8Dia end mill, we get D=0.6248. You would normally have to subtract 5/8 from it and leave the -0.0002 difference.

But there is an easier way

HAAS: Making G54-G59 show Z0 at the top of fixture

November 29, 2011, 11:50 pm by Eldar Gerfanov

Problem: Work offset G54 Z0 shows some "weird number" which is very hard to relate to.

Can we make top of fixture show Z0=0.000 ?
