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.
Simple process considerations can increase your productivity in milling titanium alloys.
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.
The right choices in tooling and technique can optimize the thread turning process.
