Faster, Better, Stronger end Mills

The cutting tool industry has been trying for years to replace solid carbide end mills with indexable end mills. There have been many attempts, few, if any have been successful. One factor is the number of cutting teeth per unit of diameter is higher on solid carbide than with indexable end mills. Smaller diameter tools require higher RPMs. Higher RPMs increase the centrifugal force on the insert.

Shark Line taps given extra bite

With its unique combination of substrate, coatings and design features, the popular application-based range offers high levels of process security and performance across a range of engineering materials.

New Seco Ceramic Inserts And Cutter Bodies For Speed Milling Of Nickel-Based Superalloys

CS300 inserts are SiAlON-type ceramics that offer high notch wear resistance, toughness and thermal shock resistance. The inserts also optimize flank wear resistance at higher cutting speeds ranging from 600 – 1,200 meters per minute and enable feeds from 0.05 – 0.15 mm per tooth. Together, these attributes reduce machining cost per workpiece, increase output, shorten lead times and lower energy consumption.

Up to 90 per cent more productive – and suitable for universal use suitable for universal use

The Tübingen-based premium-tool manufacturer is now expanding its thread milling cutter range. Three new thread milling cutter inserts with smaller corner radii enhance the versatility of the existing tool bodies; two new bodies now allow M56 and M64 coarse-pitch threads to be cut. These new additions transform the thread milling cutter family from one that was focused primarily on productivity to a family that can now be used universally.

Innovative turning strategy in hyperMILL®

The tool manufacturer Vandurit has developed an innovative rollFEED® turning method that is matched with an exclusive hyperMILL® CAM strategy from OPEN MIND. Thanks to this collaboration, there is now a new solution for CNC turning that offers maximum process reliability and significantly reduces machining times and tool wear.

Powerful in all steel materials

With the TC120, TC121 and TC122 product range, Walter is presenting three new blind hole taps in the Supreme line specially developed for machining steel materials.

Waterjet pump upgrade with several benefits

WST AB is a contract cutting company famous for quick delivery and quality parts. They focus on waterjet cutting and have three water jet cutting machines in their shop: Two traditional abrasive water jets with four cutting tools each and one machine for micro component production.

Contour-accurate finishing in turbine production

Milling cutters with pine-tree design are used for finishing blade root grooves and blade roots of turbines. FRANKEN has reworked their geometry and linked it with the name Pagode.
