Ingersoll Gold-QuadF toolingClick image to enlargeGold-QuadF high-feed cutters from Ingersoll Cutting Tool Co. feature robust edge geometries to promote longer tool life and super-free cutting geometries for removal rates up to 66 per cent higher.

In all models, an integrated radial wiper produces uniform finishes and eliminates secondary finish operations, and all contain premium milling grades with the latest post-coating treatment technology.

The single sided insert design has four indexes and a high incline insert screw for stable insert seating:

  • SDXS0904MPR - MM: Free-machining multi-purpose geometry ideal for machining ductile carbon, alloy and stainless steels
  • SDXS0904MPR - MR: Strong geometry with landed edge for steels, hardened steels and abusive conditions
  • SDXS0904MPR - MRH: Strong geometry is heavily-landed for maximum edge strength in steels and in the most abusive conditions
  • SDXS0904MPR - MR1: Keen cutting edge with reinforced flank geometry developed for Ti and other high temperature materials

Cutting Challenges

by Tim Wilson

Composites hole drilling comes clean


Composites are finding their way into more and more industry applications, with aerospace leading the way. From a holemaking perspective, challenges emerge as materials change, with stacked composites including metals, such as aluminum and titanium. As well, carbon fiber composites can be very thin, which increases the risk of delamination or splintering.
