Endmills Unique tool for numerous applications: Toric carbide endmill from Mikron Tool
Cutting tool manufacturer Mikron Tool expands its Crazy Mill Cool P&S milling cutter family, developed for roughing and finishing operations, with a toric version.
The new carbide endmill from Mikron Tool combines the strengths of milling and drilling and is designed for machining stainless steel, titanium, CoCr alloys and superalloys. Like its cylindrical predecessors, this drill/milling cutter can plunge perpendicularly into the material up to 1 x d and then continue machining laterally. It mills slots and pockets in the tightest of spaces — with no problem at all. When a corner radius is required, it is in its element. The right tool for each shape.
It is available in the diameter range of 1 to 8 mm /.039" to .315" in the following two versions:
- Type A: 2.5 x d Crazy Mill Cool P&S Corner Radius, cutting length 2.5 x d, Z3
- Type C: 5 x d Crazy Mill Cool P&S Corner Radius, cutting length 2.0 x d, Z3
A: Milling of holes, ramps, pockets, grooves and sides. Seemingly without resistance, the milling cutter plunges into the materials that are difficult to machine. It cuts powerfully with high precision, stability and excellent cutting parameters, even into the solid - effortlessly.
It achieves high removal rates, which are possible thanks to the high cutting and feed rates and an infeed (ae) of 1 x d each. The drill milling cutter features a long tool life and excellent surface quality, and this starting from a one-millimeter diameter.
According to the company, the tool offers up to fives times higher material removal rates as well as up to five times less machining time. This in turn leads to a five times longer tool life. With a perfectly controlled chip removal, the tool achieves a surface quality of Ra ≤ 0,5 µm (20 in µ).
