ITC New line of high-end mills
High speed and high feed machining of aluminium have now been taken to a new level of productivity with the arrival of the new 4204 Series of solid carbide end mills.
Available from a UK’s manufacturer of solid carbide cutting tools for machining aluminium, the new 4204 Series is ideal for high-speed and high-feed cutting of aluminium and aerospace-grade alloys.
The 4204 Series is a long series four flute end mill for deep cavity and profile machining of aluminium. The new series is available in diameters that include 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20 mm with a length of cut from 35 to 80 mm. The 6 to 12 mm diameter end mills are available with an overall length of 100 mm and the 16 and 20 mm cutters have a long-reach length of 150 mm. Despite this remarkably deep reach potential, the R&D engineers have exceeded the performance of previous product lines in terms of stability and rigidity.
With ITC’s new chip breaker technology, strengthened core diameter and ITC’s cutting-edge geometry design, the new 4204 Series guarantees exceptional material removal rates, especially when cutting ‘difficult to reach’ surfaces, the company states.
