Cutting – LMT Fette's latest Multi-Face H45 PRO4 and P45 PRO8 face-milling systems employ cutting forces that are significantly reduced by the positive positioning of the indexable inserts.
Having appropriately designed geometries and cutting materials, LMT Fette says that these systems can process general steel and cast iron as well as carry out complex applications with stainless steels, super alloys and non-ferrous metals. High material removal volumes are also achieved on less powerful machines or during component machining under difficult clamping conditions, LMT adds. This saves manufacturing time and machine costs.
In a face-milling operation test on a block of copper, it was possible to use higher cutting parameters, while requiring low power consumption, and thus, deploy a larger tool diameter, LMT noted. The result was a 100% higher material removal rate combined with a 50% longer tool life.
At Mach, the company will be in Hall 6, Booth 640.
