Undercutting, Chamfering Tools Feature Through Coolant
IMTS 2018: Tool-Flo’s Flo-Min series of solid carbide miniature tools features coolant-through capabilities.
Designed for undercutting and chamfering, Tool-Flo’s Flo-Min series of solid carbide miniature tools now features coolant-through capability. The company says the tools’ coating prolongs life, and sharp cutting edges facilitate precision machining in a range of small-diameter internal applications. They are available in a large inventory of sizes and with double-ported sleeves to facilitate change-overs.
D min is 0.197" (5.0 mm). Back Turning D min is 0.118" (3.0 mm). Profiling D min is 0.024" (0.6 mm). Face Grooving D min is 0.236" (6.0 mm). Threading D min is 0.157" (4.0 mm).
Creating threaded holes in titanium alloys calls for proper techniques based on an understanding of both the properties of these materials and the peculiarities of the tapping process.
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.
