High-performance CNC-pressed Toroid inserts from Dapra are designed for aggressive metalcutting and long tool life. These thicker inserts offer enhanced heat absorption capabilities and feature a stronger cutting edge for heavier chip loads and greater shock absorption. Additionally, positive top rake results in reduced cutting forces and lower torque.
These pressed-to-size inserts are available in either “T” or “D” geometry variations. The T-land offers a reinforced cutting edge for steels, irons and hard milling, while the dished face provides a high positive cutting edge for stainless steels, high-temperature alloys and gummy materials.
This insert line will fit current Toroid end mills and shell mills with the aid of a thicker top clamp.
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
