Grooving Tool Features Coolant Delivery System
Arno Werkzeuge USA offers its SE system of cutting tools and inserts designed to optimize turning, grooving, parting-off and copy turning operations.
Arno Werkzeuge USA offers its SE system of cutting tools and inserts designed to optimize turning, grooving, parting-off and copy turning operations. The monoblock holder uses double-ended inserts for high-productivity machining operations. The SE system also includes the Arno Coolant System (ACS) providing tool coolant directly to the cutting edge for maximum tool life and performance. A double-V insert seat design ensures accurate and secure location. In combination with a fixed stop, it ensures precise insert repeatability.
The series is available in a variety of tooling configurations and sizes, including inserts with groove widths from 0.079" to 0.236" (2 to 6 mm) with three geometries and available in five different grades. The M2 sintered geometry is designed for grooving, turning and copy turning in steel and stainless steel. The T1 sintered geometry is for machining steels and stainless steel materials, as well as thin-wall machining. The ALU high-precision ground geometry is available for nonferrous materials, from aluminum to plastic.
Shanks come in inch sizes of 5/8" ¾" and 1", and in metric sizes of 12, 16, 20 and 25 mm, with depth capacities of either 0.472" or 0.827" (12 or 21 mm).
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
Cutting holes by interpolating a face milling cutter may be a better process choice for many rough and even finish boring operations. Software improvements and better cutter designs allow expanding use of the versatile face mill for hole making.
One of the most common methods of tapping in use today on CNC machines is 'rigid tapping' or 'synchronous feed tapping.' A rigid tapping cycle synchronizes the machine spindle rotation and feed to match a specific thread pitch. Since the feed into the hole is synchronized, in theory a solid holder without any tension-compression can be used.
