Pramet's ISBN10 Enables Various High-Feed Milling Techniques
Pramet’s ISBN10 cutters are suitable for high feed milling, copy milling, ramping, helical interpolation, slotting and plunging.
Pramet’s ISBN10 cutters are suitable for high-feed milling, copy milling, ramping, helical interpolation, slotting and plunging. The pocket design, in combination with the ANHX10 insert, enables it to perform shoulder and face milling, making the ISBN10 suitable for a variety of die/mold applications.
To go with the ISBN10, Pramet also offers the BNGX10, a double-sided insert with four cutting edges. The design
Inserts are available for finishing operations in shoulder milling
Both types of inserts are said to offer a smooth cut, while a through-coolant design directs lubrication nearer to the cutting edge. This allows for high feed rates with axial depth of cut ranging to 0.040". The HFC design has a low setting angle, stretching the feed over a larger cutting edge and reducing the thickness of the chip while allowing for higher feed rates.
Reducing cutting fluid use offers the chance for considerable cost savings. Tool life may even improve.
Consider these alternatives when conventional drilling can't do the job.
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.
