New modular round chamfering tool
- Published: November 28, 2017
Big Kaiser has introduced the R-Cutter CKB Type, an ultra-high-feed front and back radius chamfering mill with high rake angles that reduce cutting resistance and minimize burr generation.
The R-Cutter CKB Type modular round chamfering tool offers a unique insert geometry, providing extreme sharpness. The radius chamfering mill is offered as a four-insert design to cut in the tightest of spaces and for higher feed rates.
The CKB connection is equipped with a floating drive pin which engages on both sides into respective pockets in the mating part. The tapers on the pins and the angles on the pockets are engineered to permit an automatic balancing of the two resulting torsional forces.
Additionally the CKB connection allows for an array of standard shanks and extensions to be adapted with the heads to create “custom” tools to extend over 16 inches, maintaining damping near the cutting edge and managing vibration in long-overhang setups.
