Big Kaiser's Noventa Optimizes Chamfering Cycle Times
Big Kaiser’s new Noventa from Sphinx milling cutter lineup optimizes front-and-back chamfering and deburring, improving cycle time, tool life, surface quality and product finish.
Big Kaiser Precision Tooling introduces the Noventa from Sphinx, the latest addition to its milling cutter lineup, useful for 90-degree, front-and-back chamfering and deburring holes up to 4×D. According to the company, the tool can take chamfering the entry and exit of 0.80 mm to 6.00 mm from a tedious, time-consuming process to one with improved cycle time, tool life and surface quality.
Similarly, the company also says that the tool can improve finished hole and part deburring operations that are often time-consuming, inefficient and lacking repeatability. Noventa is equipped with four flutes and four coolant channels that are designed to optimize performance and cycle time. The milling tool is also said to provide good surface finish due to its reinforced shank diameter and edge-breaking capabilities.
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.
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.
