High-speed machining (HSM) has steadily been gaining in acceptance with manufacturers. This is due in large part to the technological advances that encompass the high speed machining centers, tooling, programming and software. By integrating these various system components, manufacturers are using HSM to reduce their cycle times, increase throughput, shorten machining time, and minimize non-machining time while yielding high precision parts having a favorable cost/performance ratio.
Part of the award-winning Manufacturing Insights Video Series, this program features four companies that have successfully implemented and applied high-speed machining systems including:
