Want to Know the directions of 6082 aluminum milling

Postby lilMichael » Fri Sep 04, 2015 8:24 am

I am not sure whether this question has been asked before. I wan to mill a pocket and leave the top edges with no bars. So which direction should the spindle go when the tool is moving clockwise? What about when cutting an outside profile? I also wan to know the fastest way to send the spindle around the top outside edge of a profile to clean up very fast in cambam.

Is "wan" your short form of writing "want".

The problem of burrs is as a result of direction. It is normally due to dulled corners of a cutter. Sometimes, failure to plunge deep enough during the start can cause the burrs.

For the outside profile, let the spindle go anti-clockwise and the vice versa for the inside pocket.

If you want to get some very neat and clean edges, use Climb milling. Just ensure that your machine has little if any backlash and is very rigid.

Thank you for your assistance guys, I played with all your options and all is now well. I am particularly impressed by the climb milling. The edges are perfectly neat. Cheers..
