Aluminum is our friend- Five Axis Milling is too!

We enjoy machining aluminum whenever we get the chance. It is a welcomed change after machining the alloy and hardened steels we typically get. Whether it is 6061-T6 or 7075-T6 we just let the end mills to the talking and push through as fast as they will allow. I am amazed that we can sometimes look at a job after running it several times and find yet another way to make it go smoother. Recently we purchased VoluMILL and added it to our Gibbs Cam software. After going back and re-posting jobs like the one in the picture, we saved over an hour of machining. Of course the Five Axis Mori Seiki has a big factor, but we ran it there before as well. Never stop learning!
