Sandvik Head milling system features internal coolant
The internal coolant solution is said to ensure chip evacuation and secure cutting.
Sandvik Coromant’s Coro-mill 316 exchangeable-head milling system is now available with internal coolant holes. It can be used for helical interpolation as well as high-feed face-, slot-, shoulder-, profile- and chamfer-milling of components from ISO P to ISO S material groups, the supplier said.
It added that the machining of heat-resistant super alloys, titanium and stainless steels often requires temperature control coolants and chip evacuation during cutting. While the re-cutting of chips and chip jamming often cause poor surface quality, damaged cutting edges and tool breakage, the internal coolant solution ensures chip evacuation and secure cutting.
Moreover, Coromill 316 allows machine shops to accurately switch between operations like cutter type, radius variation, teeth frequency, geometry and grades. They are also said to be suitable for 5-axis milling of flanks that often require tapered tools for stability at longer tool reach.
