In the 21st century, the emphasis is on the advancements in cutting tool technology, coating chemistry, and new optimization in machining to elevate the design; thus, the tools can do more and last longer.

Bill Orris of ARCH Cutting tools will walk you through several critical building blocks in setting your cutting tools up for success. Starting with evaluating your effective use of cutting tools in your processes, taking a complete view at each step of the setup, and referencing the recommendations by the manufacturers can significantly create the most efficient tool application. The critical portion of the analysis is understanding the speed, feed, and depth of cut as the engineer or programmer to break the cycle of bad habits. Emphasizing the cutting tool holder's connectivity, in some cases, we are underutilizing the holders to fully take advantage of optimizing its effects on the complete process capabilities.

He will share how to successfully review the environment that we are creating for our cutting tools to be successfully applied, understanding that up to 70% are misapplied in the field. The critical value is studying the entire job from tool holder to component fixturing and directly affecting cutting tool conditions. Considering a tool holder's life cycle, and are you retiring them at the right time.

This webinar will help you create savings opportunities for your company.
