Putting you on the right path
ProfitTurning™ is a productive and secure cutting method for high speed lathe roughing cycles. This new technology is based on an engagement control strategy and tool selection. ProfitTurning™ helps eliminate the adverse effects of traditional turning methods.
Taking the Plunge in Turning Operations
When using traditional turning methods on heat-resistant and hard materials such as superalloys large engagement angles and inconsistent chip load can occur at both tool entry and exit. Employing traditional
plunge methods on such workpieces may also result in uneven rest materials with irregular surfaces.
Furthermore, Traditional Turning methods can cause adverse effects during the cutting process, such as heavy tool load, high and irregular cutting forces, vibration and poor chip control. A key factor when
high-speed machining these hard materials is maintaining a constant chip load, which remains vital when machining quality parts and prolonging tool life. In particular, if a chip load is too low or too high, that may cause the tool to wear faster causing many unwanted outcomes. These unwanted outcomes may include chips so large that they cannot get out
of the cutter's way fast enough. For example, if a tool is cutting deep down in a slot the chips will have a hard time getting out of the way quick enough, which
may cause the tool to break. Another adverse outcome of a low chip load is a rubbing effect, which prevents the machine from making clean chips, and
will also heat up both the tool and the material, drastically reducing tool life. Therefore, maintaining a constant chip
ESPRIT features a new and innovative lathe roughing strategy, ProfitTurning™ which helps eliminate the adverse effects of traditional turning methods. ProfitTurning is a high-speed cutting method added as an additional cutting strategy in ESPRIT’s existing Roughing and Grooving cycles. ProfitTurning is a
productive and secure cutting method that enables manufacturers to make more efficient cuts with consistent chip loads and cutting forces, thereby reducing tool wear and decreasing cycle time. This is achieved using a toolpath algorithm based on an engagement control strategy, which allows for consistent cutting forces universally, and achieves the highest level of productivity.
