Carmex Multi-Function Milling Tool is Versatile, Durable
Carmex’s Multi-Function Milling Tool performs six milling operations on a single tool, while maintaining high performance and durability.
Carmex designed its new Multi-Function Milling Tool (MF) for a wide array of milling applications including spotting and drilling, side milling, chamfering, slotting, grooving and engraving. The company says the tool delivers versatility and superior cutting performance at a high value. The tool’s construction from an ultra-fine carbide grade enhances stability and wear resistance, while also featuring a new generation of PVD coating for higher performance.
The company says the MF Milling Tool performs multiple operations with one tool, eliminates tool changes, reduces programming and setup times and reduces tool inventories. It especially recommends the tool for machines with a limited number of tool stations.
“Carmex’s years of experience in the development of the industry’s most sophisticated high-precision tooling has resulted in a milling tool design that delivers high precision and improved finish over longer tool life,” says Jim White, national sales manager for Carmex USA. “The Six-in-One MF Milling Tool is another example of the way Carmex provides value-added solutions to our customers.”
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.
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
