Economical milling as easy as 1, 2, 3September, 02 2011
October 1st sees the launch of three new styles of inserts for the CoroMill 316 exchangeable head milling system from Sandvik Coromant. The three new designs of end mill, each with two cutting edges, are problem solvers with maximum strength and security and extend the depth of cut for the CoroMill 316 range to 0.8 x Dc.
The new range is comprised of a ballnose for profile milling, aluminium machining, and finishing equipped with a strong cutting edge for profile roughing. A corner radius for slot milling, shoulder milling, plunge milling, face milling, ramping and pocketing is excellent for chip evacuation problems when slot milling. And finally, a chamfer for chamfer milling of different angles and optimised for spot drilling capability is included. The system of exchangeable end mills are connected to a tool shank by a unique threaded coupling that combines high-strength with guaranteed accuracy. The tool is based on CoroMill Plura geometries and is available in the latest PVD grade technology. Visit Sandvik at CMTS booth 2538.
