Roughing It The Easy Way—An Aerospace Job Shop Hogs Out 10,220 Lbs. of Aluminum in Half the Time With a New Cutting Tool

GEC Precision - Wellington, KS

“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 with it.”
