CNC machining – Good Vibration

Inbox Insights
Good Vibrations
Chatter is self-excited vibration that can keep your machining center from realizing its potential productivity. The solution can be as simple as tuning the process, so that the speed of
the spindle synchronizes with the natural vibration of the system. This video provides a clear illustration of the process. The machine shown here can achieve a much greater metal removal rate at a specific speed—14,144 rpm—than it can at its top speed of 16,000 rpm.
