NEW FAMILY OF FAST FEED MILLING CUTTERS CARRYING TANGENTIALLY CLAMPED RHOMBIC INSERTS
ISCAR is introducing a new family of high feed shell mill cutters carrying tangentially clamped rhombic inserts with 4 cutting edges. The new cutters have been designed for roughing operations of cavity and pocket milling in the die & mould industry and for general engineering.
The FFV D…-R-VN07 tools are available in shell mill configurations in a diameter range of 40 to 100 mm and can be applied up to 1.5 mm depth of cut.
Featuring a 16˚ lead angle, R2.8 mm programming radius, strong dovetailed insert clamping, and ramp down and side plunging capability, the tools enable high metal removal rate due to the small entrance angle, which allows high table feed at shallow depths of cut. Coolant holes are directed effectively to the cutting zone and a new polished coating for smooth chip flow and protection against corrosion and wear.
The new tangentially clamped FF VNMT… inserts are available with two types of cutting geometries for optimal machining of a large variety of engineering materials: “ER” for general applications and “ETR” with reinforced cutting edges for interrupted cut and unfavourable conditions. The main application field is rough- and -semi-finish milling of sculptured surfaces and steep profiles, including up-and down-ramping.
