Drilling Characteristics

Drilling Characteristics

The characteristics of drilling that set it apart from other powered metal cutting operations are:

* The chips must exit out of the hole created by the cutting.
* Chip exit can cause problems when chips are large and/or continuous.
* The drill can wander upon entrance and for deep holes.
* For deep holes in large workpieces, coolant may need to be delivered through the drill shaft to the cutting front.
* Of the powered metal cutting processes, drilling on a drill press is the most likely to be performed by someone who is not a machinist.

CNC Baron milling machine

The CNC Baron has a heavy-duty cast-iron body with dovetail ways on the square column for precise vertical alignment. It's a versatile bench top mid-size CNC mill made for primary or secondary CNC machining applications. This CNC machine is intended for the user WHO NEEDS IT ALL like the performance of a CNC Bridgeport-type size machine without taking up the floor space like larger CNC machinery. The CNC Baron Table Top Mill is a great purchase for machine shops, research institutions, colleges, universities, high schools, engineers who need to quickly prototype 3D parts, and one-man operations who need to mass produce hundreds of the same single part in their home garage-turned-shop. The CNC Baron Milling Machine makes a great investment tool for business owners who would rather save money by machining their own parts instead of contracting the order out. SAVE YOUR BUDGET, TIME, AND BEGIN CUTTING PARTS THE SAME DAY! The CNC Baron is made in the USA combining parts made in the USA…

esprit fx from dp technology

ESPRIT FX is the latest in advanced CAD to CAM feature exchange technology, included in ESPRIT 2007, which allows users to automatically capture the original design intent, clearly define what the user is machining, and program parts quicker and more accurately.
Going beyond transferring just the part geometry, the FX™ technology provides portions of the original CAD Feature Tree directly inside the ESPRIT user interface thereby including the complete original design intent – features, tolerances, material properties, surface finishes, administrative data, etc. Using the FX™ technology the CAD features and their associated properties are mapped into machinable features providing a complete definition of ‘what’ is being machined. These manufacturing features and their properties are then fed into the ESPRIT KnowledgeBase which aid the user in automatically selecting how to machine the part based upon existing best practices.
