Controx milling cutters are ideal for the grooving of rotary vane and turbo pump rotors and other rotors requiring precision depth and width control, the company says. Slot widths of up to 5/8” and depths to 3” are possible with or without contour in the slot base. 

According to the company, long service life is assured due to process-oriented choice of cutting material (fine and ultrafine solid carbide grades, high-speed steel grades) and a selection of surface treatments (coating, edge preparation), and a coating.  

Adjusting the clamping surfaces and drive geometries to the toolholder provides safe and stable tool clamping while individual resharpenable tooth designs allow increased speed, which reduces the machining time and improves surface quality, the company says. A side clearance design on the milling cutters for turbo pump totors allows use on five-axis machines.  

Controx milling cutters are also available as balanced cutters. According to the company, they are ideal for grooving the rotors of turbo pumps, grooving the rotors of rotary vane pumps and other precision grooving applications.
