Westec 2019: Allied Machine & Engineering will highlight its 4TEX indexable carbide drill designed for applications that include interrupted cuts and/or high-temperature alloys and stainless steels.
Allied Machine & Engineering will highlight its 4TEX indexable carbide drill designed for applications that include interrupted cuts and/or high-temperature alloys and stainless steels.
4TEX includes four-sided carbide insert geometries that are optimized for wear resistance. Inserts are available in geometry/coating combinations for all ISO materials including steel, stainless steel, high-temperature alloys, nonferrous metals and iron. The company states that the insert shape improves surface finish, hole quality and penetration rates while eliminating issues from chips winding around the tool.
The 4TEX product line is designed for making shallow 2×D, 3×D and 4×D
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
Liquid coolant offers advantages unrelated to temperature. Forced air is the fluid of choice in this shop...but even so, conventional coolant can't be eliminated entirely.
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
