Feeds and speeds for a 10mm cutter


(Luke) #1

Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone can advise me on approx feeds/speeds for a 4 flute 10mm cutter - I’m cutting 6060 aluminium, and unlikely to cut DOC much deeper than 2mm per pass

I got my machine up and running again today, did a quick test on my latest bit of scrap aluminium - at 10,000 rpm I was able to take a 0.2mm DOC with a 10mm bit at something like 2000mm a min. To get a better cut I changed DOC to 0.1mm
