Please add helix style motion, for the Sequential Groove M.O.
This is an important issue, because without this enhancement, you really can not use Sequential Groove for hard metals, and larger T-CUTTERS.
Here is the issue.
T-CUTTERS typically have 3-1 to 6-1 diameter VS Shank diameter ratios. This makes the cutter very weak. Aircraft designers usually design with the limit of dial-shank ratios in mind, when adding capped ribs, cantilevers, etc.
Furthermore, the radius of the Cutter, verses the entry hold diameters, is usually just enough for clearance. That means, the angular engagement at entry is the most of any type of cut you want to make. … Add a hard metal, like 174PH, HP9420, INCONEL, etc, and forget it, a simple arc in to a 360 cut will never work.
I want to thank Samarinder for calling this to my // our attention. While I never used the Sequential Groove M.O, I am sure I will, and would like to get this ER in the list.
This is the beauty of the COE forum……. someone else is always the first one to observe. Noting it here, help makes CATIA of tomorrow the best for ALL USERS
