My problem is drawing calls for a RA of between 2 and 10 and ive got 0.16. I am machining a pressure die cast part material is LM20 Aluminium. Cutter is a 125mm dia 6 tips face mill. My present cutting data is 10000 RPM and 20000 mm/min table feed or 780" per min.Depth of cut is 1,5mm approx. I need to maintain high feed rates to keep within cycle time. The present tip radius is 0.8mm would a smaller rad help? If i set 1 tip slightly high would this help without decreasing tip life to much.
Any thoughts on this subject would be most welcome.
Thanks for taking the time to read this
