Need To Machine Hardened Tool Steels?
A new line of solid carbide end mills machine hardened tool steels to 65-HRc, and another series machines aluminum and copper. The tools are complemented by a range of solid carbide cutters for applications in markets such as mold and die, medical, aerospace or general engineering.
Magnetic workholding chucks reduce set-up time for thin to thick workpieces. Sliding pole extensions support uneven workpieces to hold rough, uneven or round stock. Workpieces do not distort, so tool chatter is minimized and surface finish and tool life are improved. No electricity is needed to keep the chucks "on,"and they keep on holding even during a complete power loss.
Mill With Serrated Or Round Inserts
A new endmill can carry a serrated-cutting-edge insert as well as a traditional round insert for machining deep cavities. Its serrated insert has four indexing orientation options, while the round insert has eight. The cutter's serrated non-continuous cutting edge is designed to overlap and provide a fully effective cutter configuration that produces smaller chips.
Avoid Toxic Metalworking Fluids
Traditional petroleum-based metalworking fluids include a complex mixture of oils, detergents, lubricants and other ingredients that have the potential to be toxic. Fluid manufacturers have developed complex additive packages and new formulation strategies based on renewable resources to produce metalworking fluids that last longer, are safer and less labor intensive to use than traditional petroleum-based fluids.
A Better Way To Tap
A new line of small, solid-carbide TiCN coated threadmills produces threads with higher quality than tapping, reduces cost and improves productivity. The company said the tool's rigid, large-diameter shank allows for high feedrates, short cycle times, low vibration and long tool life.

Increase Productivity by Hard Milling Stainless Steels For years, machining stainless steel has been a time consuming and costly enterprise. The desirable combination of corrosion resistance and mechanical strength of stainless steel is challenging to productively and economically machine. Many applications today also require that the stainless steel be hardened, which can make machining these materials with indexable carbide inserts an even more difficult enterprise.
