Available from Cogsdill Tool Products, ZX valve seat pocket tools are designed for machining seat-pocket areas in oil valves, deep bore cavities and for other extended-reach applications. According to the company, the tools have rigid cutter support and in-bore piloting to produce accurate, chatter-free finishes, even in Iconel. In addition to machining internal chamfers, tapers and faces, they are useful in boring operations with severe interruptions as well as applications requiring long reaches through relatively small bores. The tools are available in single and twin-slide models designed to fit industry-standard flow bore sizes. The twin-slide models have balanced cutting forces to enable higher cutting speeds. In addition, the tools include a damper assembly to minimize chatter in small-diameter bores. The tools accommodate a range of diameters, cartridges and inserts, and they have the ability to upsize using the existing tool body. The modular design’s extensions feature non-deforming internal bearing surfaces and no threads to avoid locking up. According to the company, the 2-to-1 actuation ratio allows easy programming.

  • Start With The Right Speeds And Feeds

    Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.

  • Where Dry Milling Makes Sense

    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.

  • Taking The Fear Out Of Hard Turning

    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.
