Inovatools End mill designed for high metal removal rates
Germany – Inovatools' VHM HPC end mill Fightmax is designed to endure the extreme machining forces during HPC milling, the company says.
The tool is made of tough, extremely fine-grain carbide and can thus handle stressful loads. According to Inovatools, the H5-quality shank design with concentricity of 0.005 mm ensures quiet and vibration-free operation due to its unevenly split and twisted geometry of the four-edged tool. The defined, uniform edge preparation after grinding is said to further boost the end mill's performance.
The large groove cross-sections with an extremely smooth finish provides high chip evacuation from the contact zone. The special, smooth Varocon Plus coating not only aids the swift removal of chips but also makes the tool resistant to temperature and wear – a prerequisite for a long service life.
Special shank designs are said to ensure a secure fit in the tool clamp, even in extreme cutting conditions. Short and long versions are available, with diameters from 6 mm to 20 mm.
