Hard Milling How to Machine Hardened Steel

Customers often ask if you can efficiently machine heat-treated tool steels with our indexable carbide tooling. The answer is a resounding yes, but successful hard milling requires an approach that’s quite different from your typical milling applications. In this demo, we remove .010” of material from D2 tool steel

Hard Milling on CNC Machine DATRON Dynamics, Inc.

Hard milling steel 63 Rockwell, 6,000 RPM, 100 inches per minute at .012 per pass (ramping). The first and probably most important consideration in hard milling is the construction of your machine. In order to achieve ideal results with hard milling you need an extremely rigid machine that has a high degree of dampening ability.

Ask the Manufacturing Specialist: What is Hard Milling

To summarize, hard milling is a specialized process of machining that can be very lucrative and give you a new way of machining hardened steel. It is a great alternative to EDMing, grinding, and other slower and more time-consuming processes.

Hard Milling By The Numbers Modern Machine Shop

Many shops have implemented hard milling through high speed machining as a way to generate intricate die and mold forms on the machining center, with less need for EDM and hand finishing. However, machining hard steel with small tools taking fast, light cuts is not the way many shops are accustomed to machining these parts.

The Hard Milling Imperative Modern Machine Shop

Because the shop was set up to specialize in hard milling, he began encountering a variety of hardened steel grades that ranged into the 60s of the Rockwell hardness C-scale. The machining data tables from Single Source gave him a starting point, but much of the work required experimentation and test cuts.

Maximize Hard Milling with Balanced Machining

Another approach to hardened steel machining has been EDM, a process that is also very time-consuming. These lengthy processes are increasingly being replaced by high-speed hard milling, which involves taking light depths of cut and using high feed rates. This process enables shops to drill holes and water lines in a block, perform heat

Requirements for milling hardened steels Practical

2011-12-2  In general, hard milling involves cutting primarily tool steel or precipitation hardening stainless steel, such as 15-5 or 17-4, that has been hardened to at least 50 HRC. After a workpiece is roughed in the soft state, it is sent to the furnace for hardening and then finish machined with coated carbide, ceramic or PCBN tools.

Hard Milling Is Not That Hard Moldmaking Resource

Hard milling of injection mold cores, cavities and inserts is one of the best ways to shorten delivery dates and save money. In fact, if you are not already hard milling, you will soon find yourself at a distinct competitive disadvantage. Injection mold making is a perfect fit for hard milling, and this has permanently changed the mold making

Preparing for hard metal milling

Tools like the A Brand carbide end mill are recommended for milling high-hardness steel. Selecting the Right Tool. Hard milling typically is performed using coated carbide end mills, indexable milling cutters, or in some applications less conventional tool substrates. Tools and their geometries must be chosen based on a variety of factors.
