High speed, the obsession of our times
There are many companies who have already clear that they should reach high speed machining. Understand that the future depends on this type of technology to invest in them there a series of intermediate steps and 'inconvenient' which still must be resolved. The problem is the rush. We live in the high speed at all times. It how I take less to this pending trip? How can I do to launch a product faster to the market? How I will so to achieve cited me in a single day with several people? With what method shall I make that hole in the piece more quickly? There is more to observe our environment to understand that the time will mark all. "For yesterday" is the tonic general and not few people complain of pressure that involves folding the enslavement of deadlines ever more adjusted tax by customer.
If high speed machining allows what its name suggests, the company that makes the investment, thinks primarily on how much time you will take to recover the investment. Rush again. As soon as possible, it is clear.
And hurry, surely, it will require your machine a company that has finally decided to carry out a new investment. But, well, accepted this way of life, work, assimilating the obsession for running already, the truth is that high speed machining allows those who use it significant competitive advantages. It is not a magic solution, and sometimes it must be completed with the use of other technologies, such as EDM, but application on hard steels, for example, is enabling its entry into areas until recently unattainable. High speed machining, lest we forget, allows machining materials with a hardness greater than 50 Hrc or thin walls of 0.2 mm.
For several months, in this same journal defined the machining of high speed as "the optimization of machining with the existing possibilities, limited by the piece/material to mechanise and the available herramientas-máquinas." "This can be machined at speeds of court between 5 and 10 times higher than those used conventionally for every material." In short, that it greatly increases the speed, limited clear is by other factors as the material.
All is beside the point, because this new issue of MetalUnivers devotes several articles to this technology so in keeping with our times, our lives, our obsessions for speed... For once, dear reader, we recommend a bit of pause. He would welcome the pleasure of reading slowly on something so quickly.
