Iscar’s expanded Helido 845-13 mill family includes extra-fine-pitch cutters ranging from 2" to 5" in diameter and coarse-pitch models with coolant ports serving every pocket. HP and PL inserts are designed to better handle austenitic cast iron, high-temperature alloys and stainless steels, and a wiper insert improves finish using fine-pitch cutters with 5" and larger diameters.
The line of milling tools features double-sided inserts with 16 or 18 edges, depending on size. The positive-rake inserts are designed to reduce machining forces. They also featurehelical cutting edges for more gentle entry and exit. A Sumo-Tec post-coating treatment is said to improve performance in applications from hogging out dies and molds to machining turbo-machinery parts.
Modular Tooling Lines Enable Shop Standardization
Sandvik Coromant says that its modular CoromantEH, CoroTurn SL and Capto tooling lines enable the selection of optimized tooling assemblies to suit all applications using a smaller inventory of standard items.
