Walter introduces heptagon cutter designed to suit a range of cast-iron machining conditions
Xtra.tec F4045 heptagon cutter
The Xtra.tec F4045 heptagon cutter from Walter features indexable inserts with 14 cutting faces and is available in close and medium pitches to suit a range of cast-iron machining conditions.
Designed for cutting depths in the 4–6mm range, the F4045 is said to be able to easily and quickly swap the negative basic shape insert geometries — stable, universal and easy cutting — and the cutter can utilise Tiger.tec Silver or PVD Tiger.tec WKK25-grade inserts.
The clamping wedge pivots after just a few turns of the clamping screw at the side, making the inserts readily accessible, according to the company.
At the JEC Europe 2014 exhibition in Paris in March 2014, Sandvik Coromant debuted its Coromill Plura brazed PCD endmills, which are primarily aimed at manufacturers performing edging, surface milling, slotting or cutting operations on CFRP components.
CGTech, developer of the Vericut NC verification, optimisation and simulation software, has announced that its Vericut Reviewer Ipad app is now available free of charge through the Ipad App Store.
Up-Gear technology is a Heller five-axis machine that is equipped with user-friendly software and a Sandvik Coromant toolset for bevel gear machining.
This brochure presents WNT’s 13 solid-carbide milling cutters. The range includes a variety of cutters suitable for applications including high-volume machining, high-speed machining and high-feed milling.
On 3 March 2014, Sandvik Coromant will introduce the GC3330: a wear-resistant grade with Inveio technology for cast-iron milling. The consistent performance of GC3330 is claimed to be able to allow manufacturers to increase machine utilisation as well as removing a lot of metal in a short time without compromising tool life.
