Sandvik Coromant CoroMill 425 Click image to enlargeSandvik Coromant has introduced an eight-edge finishing tool for face milling of cast materials in the automotive industry.

The tool's eight edges make it suitable for face milling components such as engine and cylinder blocks, axle housings, brake carriers and crankcases made of GCI, NCI and CGI materials. Due to its patented setting system, the tool features precise, reliable insert positioning that makes set-up very simple, says Sandvik Coromant.

On the CoroMill 425, the same inserts can be used as working or as wiper inserts. The wiper inserts are mounted in cassettes on the face of the tool. The insert version with a 25° entry angle and optimized chamfer is designed to reduce breakouts and burr formation on the workpiece. A choice of wear-resistant GC1010 PVD insert grade for dry milling and K20W grade for wet milling enables especially long tool life in CGI materials.
