Retooling Improves Rough-Milling Operation, Saves Money
McGill Machine Works' rough-milling operation was destroying its cutting inserts. Ingersoll's Di-Pos Hexa high-performance face mill improved tool life and throughput.

Rethinking Standards for One-Offs
Orchard Lake Machining's standard mill used to rupture 10 minutes into the cut. Ingersoll's Di-Pos Tetra mill increased tool life and operator productivity.

Serrated button inserts like Ingersoll’s FormMaster Pro, shown here, can offer greater stability than a straight edge in particularly long-reach applications. However, there are trade-offs involved, and making the most of this technology requires carefully considering the details of each individual application.

Video: The Advantages of Serrated Button Inserts
Although round cutting inserts have a well-deserved reputation for efficiently roughing contoured geometry, they sometimes work best when they’re not perfectly round.

Toothed Edge Extends Button Insert Advantages
Particularly for long reach applications, a button insert with a serrated edge can provide greater stability, less heat-generating friction and better chip evacuation than one without.

Finding Time to “Play”
The chance to work on something other than work can not only improve morale, but also lead to new ideas and new opportunities for improving the manufacturing process.

Ingersoll Hi-QuadXXX face mill

New Cutters Enable Old Mill to Handle “Crusty” Forgings
Cyber Manufacturing receives forgings with thick and abrasive oxide "crusts" that used to slash cutter insert life on its older machine. With the Ingersoll Hi-QuadXXX indexable insert face mill, the shop gets longer tool life and improved material removal rates.

Ingersoll Hosts Liebherr Gear Seminar
Presentations from gear manufacturing experts and networking with industry colleagues make this event a valuable experience for everyone involved.

Liebherr Gear Seminar to be Co-Hosted by Ingersoll Cutting Tools
For the past 20 years, Liebherr has offered its annual Gear Seminar along with its business partners, focusing on the latest developments in machining centers, cutting tools and measurement technologies.

High-Feed Face Mill Boosts Productivity
The Gold-QuadXXX high-feed face mill from Ingersoll Cutting Tools features a positive 30-degree bevel angle along with increased depth of cut provided by ultra-strong, free-cutting insert geometry, resulting in increased productivity.

IMC Group President Says Best Tool Value Comes from Productivity
Only cutting tool productivity can reduce other factors affecting part cost. Jacob Harpaz made this point at a recent Ingersoll Cuttings Tools event in Cleveland.

Ingersoll TBTA-H drill heads

Fixed-Pocket Drill Heads Improve Straightness
Ingersoll offers its TBTA-H series drill heads in diameters ranging from 0.984" to 2.559" (25 to 65 mm).

High-Speed Spindles Powered by Coolant Pressure
These spindles use a machine’s through-spindle coolant delivery system to achieve rotational speeds as high as 50,000 rpm.

Face Mills Keep Shop from Making Large Capital Expenditure
By retooling its machines with Tedimill face mills from Ingersoll Cutting Tools, Ward Production Engineering was able to take on a jump in order volume without making a large capital investment.

Ingersoll Cutting Tools Hi-FeedMidi milling cutters

Milling Cutters Equipped with Through-Coolant
The Hi-FeedMidi family of high-feed milling cutters from Ingersoll Cutting Tools is based on the company’s Hi-FeedMini, but is capable of a 0.060" depth of cut.

Ingersoll T-Tank products

Inserts’ Smaller IC Reduces Carbide, Increases Productivity
Ingersoll has added two insert styles to its T-Tank product line: the WNMX and DNUX inserts.

Dollars and Sense
Not every streamlining project requires huge modifications to your production line. Sometimes taking a close look at how basic tasks are currently being performed can lead to simple, cost-effective improvements.

Tangential Milling, Slow-Motion Video Address Slotting Bottleneck
By switching to tangential milling from Ingersoll Cutting Tools and using a slow-motion video to identify and overcome a lack of horsepower, Busche Enterprise was able to reduce cycle time and tool cost.

Cutting Insert Triples Machining Rate, Doubles Edge Life
Ingersoll CNMX Gold Duty indexable coated carbide inserts helped reduced valve bonnet production time from 1 ¾ or 2 hours to about 45 minutes while increasing tool life and chip control.

Delcam to Host December Release Seminar
The company will demonstrate its new software at a production facility.

Company Profile

Ingersoll Cutting Tools has long been one of the world's leading suppliers of metal removal tooling. Since our first cutting tool patent in 1889, we have strived to provide innovative and productive metal removal solutions on the market.

We pioneered the development of indexable carbide tooling. We were the first to introduce the On-Edge insert configuration. We received the first patent for an indexable ball nose end mill and quickly followed with the first two-effective ball nose.

This innovative trend continues today with a comprehensive range of milling, turning and holemaking metal removal products. Our goal is to help you remain competitive in your rapidly changing manufacturing environment.

You can design the perfect shop, buy the most advanced machines and hire the best people, but the tooling is where the rubber hits the road. It all comes down to removing metal quickly and efficiently for the lowest total cost.

Ingersoll Cutting Tools is a member of the IMC Group of companies.
