Have you noticed Fullerton’s Saw feeds are much greater than other saw manufacturers? The reason is radial chip thinning. Radial chip thinning is all the buzz in newer advanced tool paths associated with high efficiency machining, but Fullerton has been employing these techniques for years in our 2450 Ferrous Saws and our new 2455 Non-Ferrous Saws.
When it comes to machining aluminum, it’s not a simple task. There are many grades of aluminum, all of which have different recommended machining techniques. This tool tip helps break down some of the different grades of aluminum and our recommendations for tooling and surface feet per minute.
