Big Kaiser's Fullcut Mill Contact Grips Feature Threaded Coupling System
Big Kaiser’s Fullcut mill contact grip endmill permits easy indexing of cutter heads while maintaining rigidity and accuracy.
Big Kaiser’s Fullcut Mill contact grip end mill permits easy indexing of cutter heads while maintaining rigidity and accuracy. With the addition of the Fullcut Radius Mill (FRM) and the Ball End Mill (BE), the Fullcut series features four connection sizes and seven cutter types.
The dual-contact grip threaded coupling system is said to achieve machining capacity close to that of integrated types. The taper and flange face make close contact for a solid connection, and one holder can be used with multiple heads.
The FRM is designed for ramping and helical milling applications, and includes round inserts with high rake for low cutting resistance. The solid carbide BE is CrN-coated for better wear resistance and is available with two or three flutes in diameters of 16, 20 or 25 mm.
Other cutters in this series, like the Fullcut Mill FCM-type for profile milling, are designed to perform sharp cutting with low cutting resistance because of the dual-contact
Also available are three chamfering options: the C-cutter Mini for transverse chamfering, the C-cutter for plunge chamfering and the C-cutter Universal for adjustable-angle chamfering.
Applying ceramic inserts is not a simple substitution of one cutting tool material for another. There are significant process considerations that shops should examine carefully in order to realize performance and tool life expectations from ceramic inserts. Here's a look at some of the ways they are used.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
To make the transition to hard turning, you'll need to switch from carbide to CBN inserts, but that is easier (and more economical) than you might think. It's making the jump to much higher surface speeds that might scare you off. It needn't. Here's why.
