Mapal’s FaceMill-Diamond polycrystalline diamond (PCD) milling cutter is designed for high-volume face milling on unstable parts.

“High cutting values and the resulting chip volume may, under certain circumstances, lead to washout of the tool body. To counteract this effect and maintain an economical product lifecycle, we have optimized the cooling concept and positioned the coolant outlets directly at the cutting edges,” explains Andreas Wittenauer, head of application technology with Mapal’s PCD Tool division. “This ensures improved chip removal and protects the tool body, especially for applications with minimum-quantity lubrication or air cooling.”

The tool is available in a modular version with a milling head for series production and parts that move from machine to machine.
