Okuma, and BlueSwarf, has developed a
series of dashboards for their products,
eliminating the need for customers to tap test
on their own machines.
“We’ve designed several end mills that work
quite well in this application,” says Fullerton
president Patrick Curry. “This includes
the AlumaMill G3 and our four flute Fury
advanced performance series tools, both of
which have special geometries, coatings, and
substrates for high performance machining.
These are offered with a proprietary anti-
pullout connection, developed jointly with
Briney, that is then balanced and delivered to
the customer as a complete unit.”
A number of those cutting tool and
toolholder combinations have been analyzed on
Okuma equipment using BlueSwarf technology,
thus determining the optimal metal removal
rate parameters for each. Customers can then
test drive these products on a website designed
specifically for this purpose, without having to
actually purchase them.
Much more than harmonics
“Our smart tool concept not only improves metal
removal rates, but also reduces downtime due
to setup and in-process tool changes,” Curry
