HSM Function How it works properly
I don’t completely understand the HSM button specifically and when/how to use it
I use the chip thinning option all the time when I rough, I use Fusion 360 for my CAM software so I use adaptive clearing for roughing And the Chip thinning button really helps in this situation. It removes material quickly in this situation
When I use the chip thinning option I will generally set it to the 12% of the cutter like the popup recommends and full axial depth. With that combo I generally have no issues as long as the set up is rigid enough to hold the part.
When do you use the HSM Button? I don’t understand that part and how to utilize it properly so I don’t use it, I want to use it to utilize the calculator to the fullest.
So for a quick reference
I have a Haas Super Mini
10,000 max rpm
15 horse motor
833 ipm max feed rate
The cutter we will use in this situation
Will be a ½ variable 3 flute end mill ZRN coated
Sticks out of the holder 1.375
Flute length 1.250 I will mill full length of the cutter in the scenirio
If I was cutting aluminum with the above specs
When and where do I use the HSM feature specifically ?
When I try to use it I cannot get anymore rpms as I max out even with the chip thinning option so it shows no difference when I turn it on.
When milling aluminum I already max out with RPMS.
when i do turn on the HSM function the cut speed slider on the right of it will drop fro 100% to around 40%, but the actual feedrate does not change whatsoever in the top right corner.
What am i missing here and I dont really know when to change the slider portion as well for the speed and feed sliders.
I have reached out to the developer I dont really understand his answer. his answer is use the bubble pop up to know its function.
again however I see no difference in the sppeds and feeds when i apply the HSM function.
When do I use this and how
Thank you for your help
I just want to get the maximun out of this calculator
