The CoroMill 690 is a long-edge cutting tool developed to provide high productivity in 2D profile milling of titanium components, especially for manufacturers who produce complex titanium components for the aerospace industry. Highly resistant to axial forces, the cutting tool uses four cutting edges to provide productive and economical machining, the company says. Chip flutes are engineered to reduce chip jamming, and each insert pocket contains a threaded coolant hole. According to the company, the ability to deliver high-pressure coolant directly to the cutting edge improves process reliability and eliminates inconsistent performance due to chip buildup. The cutting tool is suited for circular interpolation from a pre-drilled hole, square shoulder milling and edging and contouring. To further stabilize performance, the tool integrates the company’s iLock interface, which is designed to maximize insert security to offer dependable performance, increased feed rates and longer tool life.

Toolholders with integrated cutting fluid delivery channels offer threaded, fixed-position nozzles that direct parallel streams of coolant to pre-defined positions at the top of the cutting tool.
