Multifunctional DHC INOX and DHC SLOT solid carbide cutters
Multifunctional DHC INOX and DHC SLOT solid carbide cutters

Multifunctional DHC INOX and DHC SLOT solid carbide cutters The new DHC INOX from FETTE has four cutting edges, and was specially developed for cutting stainless steel, titanium, nickel-based alloys and short-chipping aluminum. The high number of teeth makes it particularly suitable for high tooth feed when trimming. DHC stands for Different Helix Cutter: different spiral angles of 41° and 44° on the sequential cutting edges, combined with large rake angles, also reduce force magnitudes and vibrations, allowing an increased volume removal rate. The short version of the cutter can increase the feed rate by up to another 40%, and does this at the same time as achieving finished quality! The newly developed DHC SLOT from FETTE has three cutting edges. It is ideally suited to slotting work thanks to its large chip spaces and its extremely good chip removal. Each cutting edge has a different helix angle (33°/35°/37°) combined with a further increase in the rake angles. These tools therefore satisfy the high performance demands made of the DHC cutters. And this applies to the full spectrum of machined materials. In summary, the advantages of using the new DHC specialized cutting tools can be described as follows: - Economical machining of stainless steel, titanium and nickelbased alloys, short-chipping aluminum - Finished quality achieved even when roughing - Multifunctionality: one working pass is saved - Process reliability with significantly increased tool lives - Increased volume removal rate - Shortening of production times - Reduction of production costs

The new Flatball from FETTE
The new Flatball from FETTE

The new Flatball solid carbide copying end mill avoids zero speed at the centre The new Flatball from FETTE is a particularly valuable addition to the HSCline family of end mills. Its particular geometrical feature is the implementation of the face cutting edges. These consist of two semicircles, and are arranged in such a way that the smallest cutting circle diameter is always 2 mm. This avoids the cutting centre working with the awkward zero speed. This is helpful for minimizing wear at the cutting center whilst at the same time reducing heat dissipation, so increasing tool life and raising process reliability. What is more, in contrast to conventional ball nose copying mills, larger stroke intervals can be achieved with the same surface quality when contour milling, thereby significantly reducing cutting times. Another advantage of using these mills is the reduction in residual material in the floor/wall region that is a consequence of the smaller corner radius in comparison with conventional ball nose copying mills. This new Flatball, which is offered in a range of diameters from 6 - 12 mm, successfully takes an important development step in the direction of reducing costs in the field of its main application, tool and mould construction.

µ-Jet and Air-Jet indexable inserts

µ-Jet and Air-Jet indexable inserts ? dynamic precision in ideal time The new µ-Jet generation of indexable inserts from KIENINGER unites the maximum possible material removal performance with top precision when roughing, machining remaining material and semifinishing in die and mould making. The improved chip curler geometry significantly increases the rate of chip removal. The tool life is also extended, which saves hard cash. Very smooth running permits reliable working. The pressed centre of the cutting edge guarantees outstanding chip removal even at high feed rates. The advantages of the new µ-Jet indexable inserts are of full benefit to all HSC machines ? not just to the latest models. µ-Jet indexable inserts are also available with integrated air cooling under the name of Air-Jet. The cooling channels here are directly integrated into the indexable insert, so providing the highest possible protection for the cutting edge.

Lathe Toolholders For Turning Away
Think 'unattended machining,' and the image in your mind is probably complex - that is, some machining process that relies on automation more than the typical machining process does. But does going unattended have to involve this complexity? Instead of requiring automation, allowing the operator to step away from the machine tool might just be a matter of addressing the sources of worry that keep that operator engaged.

Rolling Threads Has Advantages
With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
