    The paper deals with the problem of life duration of gas bubble formed around the plasma channel. Although this is secondary phenomenon, it has great influence on removal rate at electrodischarge machining (EDM). A comparison is made between duration of gas bubble at classic EDM, which lasts...

  • Further Simplifying A Trial Machining Operation. Lynch, Mike // Modern Machine Shop;Nov2006, Vol. 79 Issue 6, p110 

    The article discusses how to further simplify a trial machining operation. One technique is to use the block delete function. When the setup person or operator wants trial machining, they'll turn off the block delete switch--turning it back on once they finish trial machining. When programming a...

    The most serious problem that a current high-speed machining (HSM) servo control faces is that when the curve with a "corner" is machined, as the feedrate increases, the cutting accuracy decreases, and over-cutting is much greater than in traditional CNC. The whole accuracy of HSM is thus...
