Dormer Pramet Milling a deeper path
The expanded milling assortment includes new products for die and mould applications as well as general machining applications.
This includes the new double-sided SNGX11 insert for high feed milling with up to 1.7 mm depths of cut.
A strong main cutting edge ensures high levels of durability and process security — especially when machining corners inside a pocket. With eight cutting edges, the square-shaped SNGX11 also represents an economical solution, according to the company.
Suitable for copy milling, helical interpolation, ramping, progressive plunging and face milling, the SNGX11 is available in two geometries. M is for machining steel, but also hardened steel and cast iron. MM provides a smoother cut and is more suitable for stainless steel, soft steel and super alloys, the company explains.
The range is supplemented by the new SSN11 cutter, available in diameters from 32 — 125 mm, with intermediate sizes for die and mould applications. All cutters feature a special through-coolant design to further improve process security and a high overhang to support deep milling up to 10xD.
Meanwhile, Dormer Pramet has added to its ADMX07 milling program with a new F geometry for finishing and semi-finishing applications.
Suited to vibration sensitive machining, the chip breaker features a positive geometry with narrow peripheral land. This reduces chatter and enables a smooth cutting action without burrs on the machined wall, according to the company.
Significantly, it also supports lower cutting forces which not only reduces energy consumption, but also prevents work hardening, meaning increased durability and longer tool life.
