Cutting Tool Engineering and Sandvik Coromant on Feb. 22 presented this one-hour webinar focused on how shops can add tool life and gain productivity advantages when performing facemilling and unrepeated shoulder milling for the automotive market. The webinar is based on "A Lighter Touch," a feature article published in the February 2023 issue of Cutting Tool Engineering magazine. Sangram Dash, who authored the article and served as the webinar presenter, is the global product application manager for indexable milling at Sandvik Coromant.



Related Glossary Terms

  • facemilling


    Form of milling that produces a flat surface generally at right angles to the rotating axis of a cutter having teeth or inserts both on its periphery and on its end face.

  • gang cutting ( milling)

    gang cutting ( milling)

    Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.

  • milling


    Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.
