HARD MILLING & HIGH-SPEED MACHINING

The hard milling and high-speed machining (HSM) process have become crucial in today's competitive environment.

Achieving hard milling is more than just being equipped with stable and rigid high-speed machining (HSM) centers possessing unique capabilities strictly for ultra-high precision milling to exacting sizes and polish-free finishes.

The other components that make us here at SURKUT Machine successful in the hard milling process include:

  1. SOFTWARE - CAM-TOOL software, an elite CAD/CAM system specifically designed for hard milling applications
  2. TOOLING - heat shrunk and balanced tool holders that are capable of cutting at 24,000 RPM from high-end suppliers 
  3. PEOPLE - experienced personnel with a thorough understanding of all of these principles
  4. EQUIPMENT - state-of-the-art CNC equipment with high-quality features and large XYZ travels

Areas of Expertise

Negative Stock Machining round

Negative Stock Machining

What exactly is Negative Stock Machining?

It is the process of creating a small gap between the parting line and shut-off surfaces.

Benefits of Machining to Negative Stock
  • increased tool life
  • shorter lead times
  • increased venting
  • reduced spotting time
  • minimal downtime = less repairs

It is also essential for multi-cavity and colour molds.  Learn more about this technique here.

High-Speed Rib Cutting Has Its Advantages

We have the techniques and cutting tools to effectively cut ribs rather than using EDM processes that are both costly and time consuming.

Advantages:

fewer processes = fewer errors

shorter lead times

lower cost versus traditional methods

Disadvantages:

depth restrictions

a sharp corner

Rib Cutting
