Tungaloy Corp. has introduced TungFineBall, a new series of indexable end mills for high precision finishing.
The unique clamping mechanism, combined with the new coolant delivery system, makes it the best tool for machining die and mould and aerospace components, according to the company.
The asymmetric insert shape secures rigid clamping and prevents the insert from dislocating. This mechanism helps provide excellent surface finish and stable, long tool life. The new coolant delivery system is also an innovative feature with TungFineBall. The insert has a coolant channel on the surface that delivers the coolant to the cutting edge.
The series offers two types of inserts: ball nose and radius types; either of these two can be mounted on the same endmill. The shanks are available with steel and carbide in solid and modular type. These features make TungFineBall excellent for machining various materials, such as steel, stainless steel, hardened steel, and cast iron.
