High-Feed Milling Cutter Provides High Stability for Improved Feed Capacity
Sandvik Coromant’s CoroMill 415 high-feed milling cutter for diameters ranging from 13 to 25 mm (0.5" to 1") provides enhanced security with the iLock insert seat interface and high metal removal rates thanks to high cutter density and feed capacity.
The iLock insert seat interface is designed to deliver high stability and reduce the potential for scrapping the workpiece. The insert seat itself ensures that the small inserts are easier to handle, the company says. The cutter density and feed capacity are supplemented by the cutter’s extra-close H pitch, which can be deployed thanks to the tool’s inherently high stability, ensuring more than one tooth is always engaged in the cut. Each of the inserts offers four cutting edges.
The CoroMill 415 is also available with the Coromant EH (Exchangeable Head) interface, which the company says enables shops to reduce their tooling inventory and minimize machine downtime.
The more common twist drill point geometries often are not the best for the job at hand. By choosing the best point for the material being drilled, it is possible to achieve better tool life, hole geometry, precision, and productivity.
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.
Economic efficiency is an important consideration when choosing tools for challenging metals.
