Sorry for the weird question but I was wondering about the standard machining parameters for Aluminium (if there is even a standard). Particularly the values for a CNC process (preferably in SI) for a rough volume milling and one for a finishing cut. Google searches doesn't seem to be very helpful as I only need rough values for testing purposes. (CAD Package is CREO Parametrics 2.0)

Thank you for your help!

  • $\begingroup$ Are you talking about tolerances? Not really sure what you mean by "parameters." $\endgroup$ – grfrazee Apr 4 '16 at 13:33
  • $\begingroup$ @grfrazee: Tool angles and speeds and feeds. The base parameters are standarized per material, and you derive the speeds and feeds from these and the tool geometry (using a Machinist Calculator ). Also, cooling requirements if necessary. Unfortunately, I don't have them. $\endgroup$ – SF. Jun 7 '16 at 14:15
