Ingersoll’s Hi QuadF face mill works like a router to make more chips faster. The tool rotates at 785 SFM as it feeds outward at 0.561 IPR on the C axis. Free-cutting tool geometry with a 12° lead angle minimizes lateral cutting forces for stable machining all the way out to the circumference of the flange.

New Ways Around Old Turning Problems

An “ahead of the curve” insert makes roughing a faster, better step toward precision parts Advanced design, substrates, and coatings Live turning multiplies possibilities Redefining “light duty” Faster ID work on screw machines

You may think of rough turning as a bottleneck operation, maybe even a hazardous one, and rightly so.  But, across the country several alert machine shops have found different ways around both problems, according to Ingersoll Cutting Tools.  Users report material-removal rate improvements anywhere from 30% to 6-to-1 in OD and ID work, reliably longer tool life, and relief from ‘shrapnel’ flying from shattered tools.
