New Start Up CNC Tooling Package

Need to tool up a new CNC machine?  

GDP|GUHDO has introduced a special priced CNC tooling starter package which provides a substantial savings on highest quality tooling.  This kit includes 8 HSK tool holders (choice of style based on collet style preferred (SYOZ, ER40 or ER32) and  corresponding 8 collets (choice of sizes).  In addition, the customer can select 14 solid carbide bits (4 downcut and 10 compression styles) and 10 drill bits based on sizes needed.  This package also includes a tool setup fixture, torque wrench with collet key and a spoil board cutter, which comes mounted on an heat shrink tool holder.  Finally, a box of replacement insert knives for the spoil board cutter are also included.

After receiving feedback from our customers regarding a desire for flexibility to get what is actually needed in a starter package, we customized this tooling package to allow the customer to choose which bits are needed.

This package is available at a special  price of $3499.00.

Feed Rates for Plastics

DSC_0615“Feed rate” refers to the speed at which material is being “fed” through the machine. It is generally measured in inches per minute or meters per minute, depending on whether the Imperial or metric system is used. The Feed rate is part of the formula used to calculate chip load (size of the chip created in the cutting process). The other parts of the formula are motor speed on the router (rpm) which dictates how many revolutions per minute the tool is turning, and the number of flutes (wings) on the tool. To calculate chipload the formula is Feedrate / (RPM x number of flutes). The most common problem, in regard to incorrect chipload is premature tool wear, tool breakage, most often due to excessive heat buildup and poor material finish/chipping.

Typical chip load range for Plastic Materials

Hard Plastics .004-.016″
Soft Plastics .006-.014″

The smaller the tool diameter, the lower the chip load that applies, will be.

Collets

DSC_0009

Regular replacement of collets should be considered part of good machine maintenance as the condition of your collets will directly reflect upon the tool life as well as quality of finish on your product. Collets that are worn and dirty will create vibration during the cutting process.

CNC Machine Collets

Inspect your cutting tools to see if collet marks are visible on the shank. If so, that is an indication of vibration occurring during the cut and it is time to replace your collet. Although, the vibration can also stem from an imbalanced collet nut or tool holder.

Did you know that in addition to the standard collets with a tolerance of 0.5 mm, GUHDO also offers Premium collets with a tolerance of 0.15 mm?!
