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.
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
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.
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.
