Metav High-precision machining
A regular guest in the Metav’s Molding Area is Zecha Hartmetall-Werkzeugfabrikation from Königsbach-Stein near Pforzheim in Germany. This year it will be presenting precision tools for specific applications and modern materials.
The exhibits of Zecha at Metav in Düsseldorf, Germany, include micro milling cutters, which, thanks to a new milling cutter design, are suitable for productive yet high-precision machining of a wide range of materials, alloy components and material hardnesses up to 70 HRC. With contouring accuracy levels down to 0.005 mm and concentricity accuracy down to 0.003 mm and below, the Peacock family of micro-milling cutters ensure precise component contouring.
The new ball and torus mill cutters are designed for electrode production. They have an extremely short finishing cutting edge, while the new torus cutters also have a long roughing cutting edge. These Seagull tool series cutters are suitable for the production of thin-walled and intricate graphite molds, as they operate with significantly reduced cutting pressure. This ensures the finest contours, surfaces and dimensional accuracy in electrode production.
For Zecha application engineer Andreas Weck, the new micro families are distinguished above all by their new design which guarantees “tool and die industry users the finest surface finishes, high machining efficiency yet also optimum component contouring accuracy.”
