New Cutting Tool Range Meets Productivity Needs of Industry 4.0
Iscar is displaying a selection of its new Logiq cutting tool range designed to maximize machining processes and optimize performance. Integrating Industry 4.0 standards, the tool lines are said to meet today’s machining center demands for increased productivity.
The Logiq fast-feed milling lines feature indexable cutters, solid carbide end mills and Multi-Master tools with replaceable cutting heads. Logiq4Feed enables rough milling at high metal removal rates and incorporates a narrow double-sided insert with four cutting edges. Mill4Feed is a family of tools carrying square, single-sided inserts with four cutting edges, designed for machining almost any type of metals. The Tang4Feed shell mill family is based on the tangential principle of insert clamping to ensure a highly rigid structure and impressive ramping down abilities. Micro3Feed and NanFeed use triangular inserts and feature minimal diameters.
Other highlights include Logiq3Cham, which significantly improves drilling productivity, Logiq4Turn for enhanced performance in general-duty turning operations, Logiq8Tang, a 90-degree square milling shoulder, and Logiq5Grip, a high-efficiency solution for parting and grooving.
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.
Fast CNC processing and high-pressure coolant contribute to removing metal at dramatic rates. But what should a shop know about cutting tools in high speed machining?
Running rotary milling cutters at the proper speeds and feeds is critical to obtaining long tool life and superior results, and a good place to start is with the manufacturer's recommendations. These formulas and tips provide useful guidelines.
