MEX 2017 System for multiple milling operations with only one insert and two cutter bodies
Squarworx is Pokolm's new, multifunctional milling system for precise machining for both 90° and 45° approach angles that has only one insert. It can perform square shoulder, slotting, face and chamfering milling operations and will be presented at the show, the company says.
Each insert has four useable cutting edges with a corner radius of 0.8 mm and can cut materials in five different grades covering the machining of all standard materials, ranging from roughing to finishing.
All available shell-type, threaded shank and end mills possess the maximum possible number of teeth. In combination with the mandatory internal coolant supply allows for high feed-rates. The square shoulder and slotting cutters are available from stock in diameters from 25 - 66 mm. The chamfering milling cutters come in diameters from 16 - 63 mm and are for both forward and reverse chamfering operations, thanks to their special geometry.
According to Pokolm, cutting ease is guaranteed, even with machines that feature less sophisticated geometry. Furthermore, the cost per cutting edge is low, thanks to the four-way use of each individual insert.
