Innovations for Tooling Design, Applications, and Service

Aug. 24, 2022
Mikron Tool focuses its R&D on efficient machining of demanding materials in the micron range, and the results include a novel new high-performance micro milling cutter for roughing and finishing difficult-to-machine materials.

MIKRON TOOL will be premiering the results of its intensive development work at IMTS 2022 – booth 432279 – including the new CrazyMill Cool Micro with integrated cooling, a new type of high-performance micro milling cutter for roughing and finishing difficult-to-machine materials. It is available in diameters from 0.008 to 0.039 in. (0.2 to 1.0 mm) with a milling depth of up to 5 x d.

Thanks to material-specific cutting edge geometries, which were specially developed for the different machining behavior of materials, the new micro milling cutter combines excellent cutting ability with high stability. The result is a significantly higher removal volume with high shape accuracy and a longer tool life.

New drilling technology for titanium

Titanium, a high-performance material, is a machining challenge. In addition, not all titanium is the same. For example, pure titanium and alloyed titanium present different machining characteristics. So, Mikron Tool has developed perfectly tailored drills for the various types of titanium: The CrazyDrill Titanium PTC for pure titanium and the CrazyDrill Titanium ATC for alloyed titanium, both guarantee ambitious cutting values and process reliability. This development offers significant power for titanium processing, a drill for all types of titanium.

Novel engineering services

Mikron Tool has expanded its product portfolio and offers professional project management in high-performance machining for demanding materials.

The services include tool evaluation, optimization, or redefinition of a process or critical sequence, tool life testing and even drafting of complete projects… always under the condition that the preferred solution offers clear added value for the customers.

Machining companies can now benefit from Mikron Tool's capacity and expertise when outsourcing their pilot projects. You can expect individual machining solutions from Mikron Tool for the efficient component production with high added-value and complexity.

For the U.S. market Mikron Tool provides tools with diameters in inches, from 1/64 in. up to ¼ in., depending on the product line. Especially for the high-tech industries that are very relevant for U.S. manufacturing suppliers, such as aerospace, many dimensions are used in U.S. standard units (inches.) The need for such dimensions is increasing – so Mikron Tool has introduced main dimensions in inches for a wide range of its drill and cutter families. The tool selection was based on the most used units in the industries concerned, with a special focus on tools for difficult-to-machine materials such as stainless steel, titanium, and superalloys.
