Milling Tools Trochoidal tools for steel and exotic materials
Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has extended its trochoidal milling portfolio with the introduction of the new 6054 Series of end mills. Complementing the depth of ITC’s four and five flute trochoidal ranges, the Tamworth cutting tool experts have now expanded the six flute range with the arrival of the new 6054 Series.
Developed specifically for the machining of steel and exotic material types, the arrival of the 6054 Series offers manufacturers a long flute length for reaching into pockets and difficult to reach surfaces. The geometry of the 6054 Series provides end-users with a robust and stable platform that instils confidence when undertaking extended length machining with high material removal rates. Furthermore, the 6054 Series has a centre cutting geometry with harmonic fluting to maximise material removal rates. Swarf evacuation is taken care of by the extremely effective chip breakers on the new 6054 Series. The 6054 Series has a square end geometry for 90° machining in corners with a corner radius range also available. The corner radius tools with 0.25. 0.5, 0.75 or 1 mm radius prevent edge chipping and prolong tool life.
The 6-flute series is available with diameter options of 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20 mm with a length of cut from 18 mm on the 6 mm diameter tool through to 60 mm on the 20 mm diameter end mills. To provide ensure reach, the 6054 Series is available with an overall tool length from 75 to 150 mm depending upon the diameter selected. The rigidity and performance is enhanced with a shallow chip gullet that guarantees core strength for high material removal rates and stability. Complementing this is the polished harmonic flutes and Cupro coating that work in synergy with the chip breaker design to evacuate chips at a high rate.
