    Not sure if you have a servo option for your control, or whether the option could be installed from Fanuc?

    Have you had good luck with tool life doing this?

    I never have Bob.
    But a mate (AE) uses it alot in the medical game.
    He also showed me a standalone unit which bolts to the machine for drilling - has its own HFT feed axis - very impressive for small drills. He feeds normal (Z) and the attachment HFT drills.

    That would most likely be a TriboMAM unit from M4 Sciences. Good people, good tools.

    Also, Bob, tool life does not suffer when using HFT/LFV/Servo Oscillation for turning. At least, not in my world where we set tool life conservatively for stable production. Possibly in a "run the insert till it breaks and then make 2 more parts or the job isn't profitable" kind of shop it could cause problems.

    Yes that's it - Trobomam.
    Cool looking piece of kit.
    Goes against "historic thinking" because peck peck peck = "workhardening" or "drill wonder" etc.
    Works a treat though!

    Probably both.

    Step 1: learn machining

    Step 2: learn lights out machining

    Step 3: go golfing while machine runs lights out
