Exchangeable milling heads
- October 21, 2021
Tungaloy has added 88 total exchangeable heads in five geometries to its TungMeister exchangeable milling head range.
The new additions are VFX high feed milling heads, a VBL lens-shape milling head for five axis machining, a VEE small-diameter square shoulder milling head, a VDS spot drilling and chamfering head, and a VDP centre drilling head.
The VFX milling head for high feed applications now offers a six flute version, in addition to existing two- and four-fluted milling heads. The new six flute milling head is available in AH750 grade suitable for machining of ISO H materials. Additionally, existing two- and four-fluted milling heads are offered with through-coolant channels as well, which direct precision coolant supply close to the cutting point for improved tool life and chip evacuation.
The new VBL lens-shape milling head has a convex cutting edge on the tool’s tip, instead of on the periphery, providing a good solution for machining a complex bottom surface. These end milling heads enable more material removal with fewer passes in 5-axis machining.
VEE square shoulder end milling heads are now available with an S04-size screw thread for secure and accurate coupling of a 6 mm diameter VEE head with the shanks in the same diameter of 6 mm. This feature makes it easier to use TungMeister VEE in Swiss machining applications.
VDS is a spot drilling head for creating a small dent on the surface of the material to correctly locate the centre of a drill when commencing a penetration, eliminating the risk of drill walking and helping to ensure more accurate hole dimensions.
The VDP centre drill head now includes Type B, forming a hole with two chamfers: a 60 degree chamfer and 120 degree chamfer at the start of the hole in a single drilling operation.
