Tooling System For Machining Titanium Alloys

A new tooling solution for the machining of titanium alloys and heat-resistant alloys,Xcel tool is said to provide design advantages when the user is performing semi-rough turning into shoulders. The tool features the accessibility and programming of an 80-degree insert along with reduced wear compared to a square insert used at a 45-degree entering angle. According to the company, the tool has the following benefits: Reduced notch wear and faster cutting speeds compared to rhombic inserts; the ability to machine into corners to produce complex shapes; greater accessibility in confined spaces; the abilityto machine in two directions; and reduced radial forces and constant chip thickness compared to round inserts.
