a New Cutting Tool
Sometimes it pays to be wrong, according to Gene
Price, owner-president of Brek Manufacturing Co., a Gardena, CA
job shop specializing in machining medium-to-large airframe parts
for military and commercial aircraft. To his credit and profit Price
learned this lesson about eight months ago when being proved wrong

speeds from 160 IPM to 300 IPM. [More...]
GEC Precision - Wellington,
When I visited GEC Precision in Wellington,
KS, they were using a competitive 3-flute end mill to rough aluminum
7075, says Greenfield Applied Product Specialist Tom Doan.
They were using a 1,002 RPM speed and 15 IPM feed combination
at that time. I introduced the PM Plus List #538 to them and suggested
a 1,201 RPM and 25-1/2 IPM feed combination. GEC's productivity
doubled with the PM Plus. Another thing that impressed GEC was that
they noticed a significant reduction in thermal deformation.
The PM Plus List #538 is a much freer cutting
tool, says GEC Precision Manufacturing Technician Roger Snyder.
Precision Profiling, Inc.
- Wichita, KS
When Greenfield Industries Applied Product Specialist
Tom Doan walked into Precision Profiling, Inc., a Wichita, Kansas-based
aircraft parts manufacturer, they were using a competitor's end
mill. Precision was taking 1-1/2 hours to finish a part using
the competitor's product, said Doan. The same part took
only 30 minutes with the PM Plus List #538.
I've seen everything that's come down the
line, says Precision Profiling's president Curtis Kempton.
But the PM Plus product is outstanding. We're very impressed
