New Tungaloy exchangeable milling headsClick image to enlarge

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.
