SANDVIK Coromant is extending the programme of the successful CoroMill 210 cutter. The CoroMill 210 milling cutter has the capability for both productive plunge milling and high feed face milling.
Cutters with diameters up to 100mm are currently being introduced.
The apparent paradox to combine two different operations is made possible through the design of the cutter body, insert seat and the inserts themselves.
A ten degree entering angle allows extreme feed rates at small axial depths of cut when the tool is fed tangentially - and also high radial depths of cut when fed axially in roughing operations.
High feed face milling with CoroMill 210 is the most productive roughing method. Extremely big chip volumes can be removed at feed rates far above those possible with conventional face milling.
Plunge milling with CoroMill 210 is the fastest way to mill away large volumes of metal in the axial direction, e g internal milling of deep cavities and milling externally along deep shoulders.
