ISCAR recently expanded the tool and insert options of the immensely popular FFQ4-12 milling family to include new tools and insert geometries.
The FFQ4-12 tools carry square single-sided inserts with four cutting edges, designed for reducing cutting forces when used on low power machines or long overhang applications.
The FFQ4 D…-12 shell mill cutters feature a coarse-pitch option for 40 and 50 mm cutters and for 52 and 66 mm cutters, which extends the range of application options for roughing operations in the die & mould and aerospace industries and in general engineering.
The FFQ4 inserts are produced from ISCAR’s latest SUMOTEC carbide grades, ensuring high productivity.
Insert types include:
- FFQ4 SOMT 125 single-sided square insert with four cutting edges, featuring five cutting geometries for optimal machining of different materials
- FFQ4 SOMT 12516T for steel, ferritic and martensitic stainless steel, cast iron and hardened steel; FFQ4 SOMT 12516HP for austenitic stainless steel and high temperature alloys
- FFQ4 SOMT 120516T20 for grey and nodular cast iron; FFQ4 SOMT 1205RM-T for interrupted cut and for machining near straight wall shoulders of steel, ferritic and martensitic stainless steel, cast iron and hardened steel
- FFQ4 SOMT 1205RM-HP for interrupted cut and for machining near straight wall shoulders of austenitic stainless steel and high temperature alloys
The FFQ4 D…-12 tool features a 9˚ cutting edge angle, positive axial rake angle, ramping down capability, a 3.1 mm radius for programming, with fine pitch and coarse pitch cutter versions. Internal coolant holes are directed to each cutting edge and the cutter body has a special protective polished coating for uninterrupted chip flow and protection from corrosion and wear.
