Abstract

There are several key milling practices that help impart fine surface finishes in micromilling. They include running at ultrahigh spindle speeds, carefully monitoring chip load, employing climb milling when possible and using CAM software to develop toolpaths that enhance surface finishes. There are also promising developments that can improve surface finishes in areas as diverse as using atomized cutting fluids and milling ultrafine-grain workpieces.
