The company is expanding its line of cutting tools for parting and grooving with the new CoroCut 3. It brings a third cutting edge to the shallow parting of tubes, bars and grooving operations. The small parting widths in 0.079", 0.059" and 0.039" will reduce the raw material usage, according to the company.
Secured by a clamping solution, the company says this tool guarantees accurate location combined with tight indexing tolerances to help produce workpieces with close length tolerances. Two dedicated insert geometries ensure peak performance and excellent surface finish in all workpiece materials, the company says. The same holder can be used for all insert widths, whihc is said to give maximum versatility.
Can 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.
