End mill for aluminum
Tri-Power Ski-Carb is a three-flute carbide end mill for aluminum. Its flute form increases chip-load per flute to 1.3 to 1.6 that of a twoflute tool. The increased chip load and additional flute reportedly deliver productivity improvements of 100% to 300%.
90° corner milling
Univex Premium Series squareshoulder mills have high-positive geometries and unequal pitches for 90° corner milling. They deliver high feedrates, and through-the-tool coolant supply evacuates chips and increases tool life.
The indexable inserts, in 0.433 and 0.679-in. lengths with a variety of corner radii, come in a range of grades and coatings.
Tooling for smallpart machining
CoroCut XS tooling is for turned components with diameters as small as 0.039 in. XS inserts perform tight-tolerance grooving, threading, parting, and turning, and all are compatible with the same toolholder for these operations. Corocut XS has a grooving width of 0.02 in. and a parting width of 0.028 in.
