ISCAR TIP TALK - Groove Turn- Choosing The Right Machining Technique

Today we'll talk about choosing the most suitable machining technique when using Groove-Turn tools. Machining pockets with Groove-Turn tools can be performed by using several techniques. The most common ones are plunging, Groove-Turn and ramp-down. So which one is better? This depends on what we're looking for. If we seek the fastest machining cycle, we should usually choose between plunging and Groove-Turn . A simple rule of thumb says that whenever the depth of groove is greater than 4 times the width of groove, it will be faster to widen the pocket by use of plunging. Whenever the width of groove is greater than 4 times the depth of groove, a Groove-Turn technique will be faster. So when do we apply ramp-down? Whenever we need better stability and increased tool life, the ramp-down technique will be the most suitable. For example, machining pockets in exotic materials such as high temperature alloys. Iscar offers a large variety of solutions suitable for all types of machining techniques. Check our catalogue, and should you have doubts about which solution suits you best, please contact us.
