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.”
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.
The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.
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.
