ISCAR Launches Chipformer For Finish Turning On Superalloys

ISCAR Launches Chipformer For Finish Turning On Superalloys

Intended mainly for aerospace industries as well as for the oil and gas market, the F3S chipformer—the new efficient chip breaker from Iscar—is designed for working with unique and tough-to-machine nickel-based alloys, such as Inconel, Waspaloy, etc., as well as other exotic materials such as titanium-based alloys.

The new F3S chipformer from Iscar has a positive rake angle to ensure a smooth and easy cut, with significant reduction in cutting forces and notable chip breaking results. The F3S chipformer has been designed with geometric features to improve tool life, with a reinforced cutting edge at the area where VG (notch wear) wear tends to occur when machining superalloys and exotic materials, which causes poor surface finish and risk of edge breakage.

The chipformer is available on the most popular inserts – CNMG, WNMG and SNMG – in two main grades, IC806 and IC804, and will be available in the future also on VNMG, DNMG, and TNMG inserts.

Tungaloy Expands Copy Milling Cutter Diameter Lineup

Tungaloy Expands Copy Milling Cutter Diameter Lineup

Tungaloy is expanding its DoTwistBall line of copy milling cutters to include additional diameters of shell mills.

The DoTwistBall copy milling cutter is designed to ensure maximum machining reliability during complex 3D milling processes. The insert is constructed in a helically twisted structure that fits the seat constructed in a matching helical profile. This design provides secure insert positioning and fixation with anti-twist protection during machining. In addition, the strong, thick design of the insert helps to withstand machining impact preventing insert fracture.

The cutter body can accommodate either round LNMX-MJ inserts with 4mm, 5mm, or 6mm nose radius or LNMX-HJ inserts for high feed milling, making the cutter extremely effective for machining complex curved surfaces typical in die and mould industries.

The new cutter diameters include ø42mm, ø52mm, and ø63mm in popular shell mill bodies to accommodate the LNMX04 inserts. A total of three cutter bodies are added in this expansion.

Walter Expands Perform Product Range With New Milling Cutters With Corner Radius

Walter Expands Perform Product Range With New Milling Cutters With Corner Radius

Walter has expanded its Perform product range with the launch of the new MC232 Perform solid carbide milling cutters. The MC232 milling cutter features a corner radius and reduced neck, allowing the user to better approach individual component geometries. It also improves the tool life of the milling cutter, as the edge stability is increased. The reduced neck in turn makes the milling cutter more flexible, as the user can use it with an even wider variety of cutting depths.

Other features of the Perform line have been adopted: the high level of cost efficiency for small and medium batch sizes, or Walter’s own WJ30ED grade, which provides a high level of wear resistance. ISO P materials are the primary application of the MC232 Perform, with ISO M and ISO K as secondary applications. The new milling cutters are likely to be of particular interest to job shops and manufacturers with frequently changing orders or quantities.

The Walter range in the MC232 Perform family now includes solid carbide cutters with or without a reduced neck and with or without a corner radius in a total of 126 dimensions, of 2–20mm in diameter. The milling cutters can be used for all typical milling applications (lateral milling, full slotting, pocket milling, helical plunging, ramping) and are suitable for a variety of materials and milling strategies.

Sandvik Coromant Extends Advanced Insert Grades To Additional Milling Concepts

Sandvik Coromant Extends Advanced Insert Grades To Additional Milling Concepts

Following the successful introduction of its GC4330 and GC4340 steel milling grades, Sandvik Coromant is now extending the range of application for these advanced insert grades to additional milling concepts. The grades are now available for selection with the CoroMill 300 round-insert face and profile mill; the CoroMill 245 multi-purpose face milling cutter; and the CoroMill QD cutter, which is optimized for deep and narrow grooving and parting off.

GC4330 and GC4340, which feature a specially developed substrate, Inveio coating and enhanced post-treatment technology, allow users to enjoy substantially increased tool life and process security. The extension of these grades to additional Sandvik Coromant milling concepts brings their advantages to even more machine shops looking to optimize the milling of steel workpieces.

Among the many design attributes of GC4330 and GC4340 is the optimized Inveio coating. Inveio is the technical breakthrough of uni-directional crystal orientation in the alumina coating layer that gives inserts a new level of wear resistance and tool life. Furthermore, the substrate of the grades delivers highly controlled grain size distribution for more reliable and predictable insert behaviour.

GC4330 is a medium-hard grade for roughing to semi-finish face milling, while the GC4340 grade is for rough shoulder milling and groove milling. Both grades are also extended to the CoroMill 360 heavy-duty face mill, CoroMill 419 high-feed mill, and LPMH-PM plunge-cutter inserts. In addition, GC4330 is available for the CoroMill 365 high-security face mill, while GC4340 can be applied to the CoroMill 216 ball-nose end mill and CoroMill 415 small-diameter high-feed face mill.

Solid Ceramic Endmills For Machining Nickel-Based Superalloys

Solid Ceramic Endmills For Machining Nickel-Based Superalloys

Following the steady increase in the processing of nickel-based high temperature superalloys (HTSA) such as various grades of Inconel, Incoloy, and Haynes, amongst others, in the aerospace industry, and the demand to decrease production costs, ISCAR has launched solid ceramic endmills that enable increasing the cutting speed by up to 50 times when compared to carbide tools, drastically saving machining hours and reducing production costs.

Available in two configurations—E3, with three flutes for shouldering applications, and E7, with seven flutes, feed mill style for rough applications—the new endmills can also be successfully applied to productive roughing of cast iron and graphite.

The solid ceramic endmills are produced from two ceramic grades: IS6, designed specifically for machining HTSA, and IS35, intended for cutting mainly cast iron and graphite. They are available in 6mm to 20mm diametres.
