Chip thinning for ball end mill

Chip thinning comes into play when you make a cut that’s less than half the diameter of the cutter wide. This is very common, especially with high-speed machining toolpaths. For example, with a 1/2″ end mill, you might specify a cut that’s 20% of the diameter, or 0.100″ wide. The diagram shows a view of a cut looking down along the axis

    Can someone simplify, or explain Chip Thinning?

    Feb 16, 2010 chip thinning is the concept of maintaining the chip load on an end mill. sort of like maintaining sfm on a lathe. with a lathe to maintain sfm you increase your rpm as your diameter gets smaller. this ultimately takes a bigger bite of the material than if you were to use a slower rpm and the same feed. chip thinning is a process by which your

    The HFM mechanism is based on the “chip thinning” effect. The thickness of a chip depends on the entry angle of a milling cutter. A cutter with a 90 entry angle has no benefit of chip thinning as the feed per tooth at 0.2 mm only creates chips 0.2 mm thick (Fig. 1). In the case of a cutter with a 45 entry angle, feed per tooth at 0.28
