Toolholder Damps Vibration, Reducing Wear
The Tendo Platinum toolholder from Schunk is designed for durability, ease of use and precision for many milling, drilling and reaming applications.
The Tendo Platinum toolholder from Schunk is designed for durability, ease of use and precision for many milling, drilling and reaming applications. Improved brazing technology with a single-cycle brazing and hardening process gives the toolholder rigid and durable tool clamping. Hardened high-grade tool steel ensures long life.
The toolholder is designed to offer vibration damping and runout accuracy of less than 0.003 mm (0.0001") at 2.5 times clamping diameter, working with the machine spindle and the cutting tool to reduce wear and damage. The company offers direct clamping in both metric and inch sizes.
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.
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.
