Machining Recommendations

Notes When Face Grooving

Always machine from the outer diameter towards the centre.

Machining Narrow Grooves

溝が深く幅狭い場合

Plunging in several passes is recommended.

Machining Wide Grooves

溝が浅く幅広い場合

Cross feed machining is recommended.

Notes on the First Pass (1)

最初の溝入れ加工時の注意点1

During the first face grooving pass it is difficult to disperse broken chips and can lead to problems such as a chipped insert.
Maintain longer chips that disperse easily by decreasing the feed per rotation.

Notes on the First Pass (2)

最初の溝入れ加工時の注意点

When chips become too long, use peck feed to break them into a suitable length.

Notes When Wide Face Grooving by Plunging in Several Passes

複数回の突き加工を行う際の注意点

•When machining a face groove in several passes, machine from the outer diameter towards the centre so that space for discharging chips is created to prevent insert damage caused by chip jamming.

Plunging width of cut is recommended to be set at 60 - 80% of the insert width. This enhances the effect of the chipbreaker by enlarging the width of the groove to improve chip dispersal.

Notes When Wide Face Grooving by Combination of Plunging and Traverse Machining (1)

横送り加工を併用する場合の注意点

•When face groove machining by using plunge feed and traverse machining, always machine from the outer diameter towards the centre to disperse chips outward to avoid chip jamming problems.

•Set the depth of cut within 40% of the insert width.

Notes When Wide Face Grooving by Combination of Plunging and Traverse Machining (2)

横送り加工を併用する場合の注意点

When infeed machining at the bottom of a deep groove, chips may interfere on the cutting edge near the centre wall.
In such cases, stop infeed machining just before the centre wall (at a point less than the insert width) then remove the remaining material by plunging.

Notes When Copying (BM Breaker)

倣い加工に関する注意点(BMブレーカ)

With the BM breaker insert, 3 dimensional copying is possible. Set the depth of cut (APMX 2) to 30% less than the insert width.

Finishing (1)

仕上げ加工の注意点

When finish cutting, machine continuously from the outer wall to the bottom of the groove, then finally plunge cut the centre wall.

Finishing (2) (BM Breaker)

仕上げ加工の注意点

Carry out finishing in one process. For the depth of cut (APMX 2) when back turning, refer to the table on the right.
