Face Milling Cutter for High-Polish Milling
Horn’s M117P face milling cutter is designed for high-polish milling applications.
Horn’s M117P face milling cutter is designed for high-polish milling applications. The cutter features monocrystalline diamonds (MCD) with an amorphous structure for high-precision machining and geometrically determined cutting edges. The MCD tools are said to enable surface accuracies of less than Rz 0.02 microns, and are well-suited to finishing processes for nonferrous metals and their alloys; precious metals such as gold and platinum; and transparent plastics such as PMMA and PC.
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.
Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
