OSG will showcase a variety of its tools, including ExoPro PHX deep-feed-radius end mills, and ExoCarb WXL and WXS carbide end mills.

ExoPro PHX end mills are designed specifically to enable moldmakers to achieve improved quality, cost savings and delivery times with their existing equipment. New “spiral gash” geometry is designed to increase edge strength and reduce chip thickness. The company’s WXS nano coating increases hardness and heat resistance. The end mills are available in a variety of lengths and shapes, including ball-end, pencil-neck, long-neck, and corner-radius.

ExoCarb WXL and WXS carbide end mills are designed for rigidity and performance, even in tough materials and milling applications. The WXL is tailored for nonferrous materials and mild steels ranging to 55 HRC, and can withstand temperatures to 1,100°C. The WXS is made for hardened steels such as D2, A2, S7, H13 and CPM. It is capable of milling to 65 HRC and can withstand temperatures to 1,300°C. With their high-precision geometry, the WXL and WXS are said to be well-suited for the mold and die industry, eliminating the need for benching and reworking.

    Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.

  • 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.

  • Rolling Threads Has Advantages

    With macros and canned cycles resident in the CNC on most contemporary turning centers, single point turning of OD threads can seem like almost a default process decision. However, for numerous applications, OD thread rolling has inherent advantages as an alternative to cutting threads.
