SANDVIK Coromant has introduced CoroMill Century - a new generation of novel and lightweight cutters for high speed machining.
The design of this face mill cutter paves the way for new methods and innovative thinking in milling aerospace frame components and mass-produced automotive parts, along with boosting performance in general production, Sandvik says.
The effective chip evacuation, a critical precondition for the use of HSM, is facilitated by the dynamic cutting fluid supply through the cutter.
The cutter is built from a minimum of parts for easy handling and maintenance.
The insert clamping in serrated seats contributes to the high level of rotational security as it gives safe and precise location of the cutting edges. Minimal run-out ensures smooth, stable and vibration free cutting action.
CoroMill Century is primarily developed for use with PCD inserts but performs equally well with carbide inserts in operations where a somewhat lower cutting speed is preferred.
Rough to super finish milling of aluminium can be performed with excellent productivity. Coromill Century is available in diameters from 40 to 200mm.
