Modern machining of die and mold tools

P. Krajnik, J. Kopač
2004 Journal of Materials Processing Technology  
Modern production of die and mold tools is quite different in comparison with conventional machining. The basic theory of cutting process and cutting geometry is similar, but the techniques and technology is quite different. High-speed cutting (HSC) principles are not applicable with conventional machine-tools. Difference between conventional and high-speed cutting velocity is analysed on chip formation. The comparison between EDM and HSM has been made and shows great HSC benefits. Usage of
