Problems with poor chip formation may be caused by:
- Difficult workpiece materials
- Wrong geometry
- Wrong cutting data
Good chip formation
Poor chip formation
One way to improve chip evacuation is to mount the tool upside down. To prolong tool life and achieve chip-breaking in long-chipping materials such as titanium alloys, we recommend a tool with precision coolant is installed in the machine. Dwelling (micro stops) or pecking can be used to break the chip in long-chipping materials. However, this method will reduce tool life.
