Running the correct Speeds and Feeds or Parameters is the most important aspect in getting the best tool life possible in all cutting tools so we have made it our mission to provide as much info as possible on that for you. You can find parameters for most of our tools in our technical section and along with it we have created a 2 page Speed and Feed Cheat Sheet you can view or print out to have a quick reference for most common Milling and Turning applications, here is a link to it:
In our parameter sheet we have parameters for End Mills, Carbide Drills (no coolant thru), HSS/Cobalt Drills, Spade Drills, Cut Taps, Form Taps, Thread Mills, Turning Inserts, Cutoff/Grooving Inserts as well as Our Top Indexable End Mills and Face Mills. In it we covered the materials we see the most often: Low Carbon Steel (1018), Alloy Steel (4140), Stainless Steel (300 Series) and Aluminum (6061). If you don't see your tool or material on there visit our technical page and we will have the parameters there. Here a few quick notes:
If you have any questions or difficult applications let us know and we can help!
Welcome to ToolHIT! It is our goal to be your top choice for Cutting Tools and we would like to do this by offering top quality tooling options as well as an easy way to order online. We also have a lot of industry experience in CNC Machining and would like to be a technical resource for you, so please contact us if you have any tough applications or any general questions. Also, we welcome your feedback, if you would like to see any improvements to our site let us know. With these blogs it is our goal to share what we have learned and can hopefully help you current or future applications or tooling selection.
For our first blog we'd like to go thru Rotary Toolholder of CNC Mill Toolholder selection based on application. The correct CNC Toolholder can make a huge difference in tool life as well as ability to hold tolerances. Here is a quick cheat sheet we put together based on your application:
