Corner radius, through coolant added to tool lineup
- Published: February 4, 2018
Kyocera has added to its T-Carb tool lineup with 58 new items featuring a corner radius.
The T-Carb lineup features specialized engineering and design to excel at high-speed machining, specifically, trochoidal and peel milling.
The T-Carb’s 6 flute design with eccentric relief provides strength and supreme chip control at high speeds with surprising finish results. It is recommended for materials ≤ 45 HRC (≤ 420 Bhn).
Kyocera has also expanded its Z5 high performance rougher lineup of tools with 50 new items that feature a through coolant option. The Z-Carb HPR Five-Flute Roughing End Mills are ideal for achieving high metal removal rates (MRR) and a finish of 80 RMS or better on most materials. The specialized five-flute design is engineered for increased productivity over three- and four-flute end mills. The variable indexing geometry allows for improved chatter suppression over symmetrical designs.
The through coolant option delivers coolant effective to the cutting zone to enhance chip removal when pocketing and slotting.
These new items will be offered in ½ in and 12mm diameters.
