Machining tip #191

 

​Increasing the number of flutes makes the load on each tooth more evenly spread. This allows for a better finish. However, with a high helix angle, the load (FV) along the cutter axis is increased too. A high FV can give load problems on the bearings and cause the cutter to pull itself out of its holder. To avoid this problem it is necessary to use Weldon or high grip chucks.
