At Dapra, our relationship with shops large and small doesn’t start and end with a purchase order.
We’re here to help you choose the best tooling, inserts and operating parameters to maximize your milling efficiency and productivity – every step of the way, from sale to the spindle.
Every day, we work side-by-side with our customers to determine the best approach for their milling applications. This series of quick videos looks at a variety of scenarios where we helped shops save time and money by dialing in their operation.
For this application, a customer required extensive roughing of 17-4 PH stainless steel on their 40-taper Haas machining center.
With its light depth of cut a quick feed rate, our 2" mini-feed high-feed cutter was a perfect fit, achieving more than 90 minutes of tool life, with machine loads well within normal.

High-feed helixing can shorten cycle times for large-diameter hole making to never-before-seen levels – even on a 40-taper machine.
In this customer application, our high-feed milling cutter makes quick work of a 4" diameter, 2.5" deep hole in 4140HP.
A customer called looking for assistance roughing a lot of material from a Toolox 44 block at 45 Rc. Our recommendation was a heavy-feed cutter using RF-12 inserts.
Wanting to stay conservative since it was an unattended run, we set the customer up at 350 SFM, .030" FPT and .035" DOC. After 90 successful minutes of cutting, the inserts still looked good!
