Indexable Insert Drill Suited for High-Feed Metal Removal
EMO 2017: Ceratizit will display its MaxiDrill 900 system, an indexable insert drill with four-edged geometry and application grades for high feeds and high metal removal rates.
Ceratizit will display its MaxiDrill 900 system, an indexable insert drill with four-edged geometry and application grades for high feeds and high metal removal rates. The CTPP430 grade covers a range of applications and materials and can be used in central and peripheral insert positions, whileCTCP420 grade for the peripheral cutting edge is said to increase cutting speed by 30 percent. The inclined position of the insert seat is said to optimize performance, ensuring process reliability and minimum drilling tolerances.The drills are available in 211 standard sizes with lengths ranging from from 2×D to 5×D and diameters from 12 to 63 mm.
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.
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.
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.
