High-efficiency dynamic milling (or volume milling) is a very efficient way to remove material quickly. Running your cutter at very high speeds and feeds, and at a high depth of cut – but with a light radial width of cut – provides high metal removal rates, shorter cycle times, and prolonged tool life.
Expensive solid carbide end mills are often used, but indexable tooling can often tackle dynamic milling jobs at a fraction of the cost. Watch an American-made 3/4" Helical Roughing End Mill perform an impressive .900” deep pocketing routine in 6061 aluminum.
