Extending depth of cut in milling
- November 15, 2011
Sandvik Coromant has launched three new styles of inserts for the CoroMill 316 exchangeable head milling system.
The design on each end mill feature two cutting edges offering high strength and security and extending the depth of cut for the CoroMill 316 range to 0.8 x Dc.
The new range includes a ballnose for profile milling, aluminium machining, and finishing equipped with a strong cutting edge for profile roughing.
A corner radius is for slot milling, shoulder milling, plunge milling, face milling, ramping and pocketing. This design is excellent for chip evacuation problems when slot milling. The third style is a chamfer for chamfer milling of different angles and optimized for spot drilling capability.
The system of exchangeable end mills are connected to the tool shank by a unique threaded coupling which combines high strength with guaranteed accuracy, claims the company. The tool is based on CoroMill Plura geometries and is available in the latest PVD grade technology.
