60-277 UHMW Fabrication
60-277, Three Flute Solid Carbide Low Helix Finisher
Block of UHMW
Haas Vertical Machining Center
Currently using a 4 flute endmill design to machine steel
Need a better finish and faster cycle time to remove 1/8” of material on 2” thick UHMW
Replace the 4 flute end mill with the 60-277, 3 flute finisher design to machine plastic.
RPM = 4,000 RPM = 9,000
Feed Rate = 15 IPM Feed Rate = 250 IPM
Number of passes = 4 Number of passes = 1
Decreased cycle time by 8 mins per part and increased part finish.
