Silicon Nitride Insert Increases Productivity
The inserts increase tool life and offer cutting speeds ranging to 5,000 sfpm (1,525 m/min.) in single-point turning and grooving operations as well as milling operations. The insert is available in standard and special geometries, trigons, Rough Stuff surface treatments and custom edge preparations for specific applications.
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.
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.
