Big Kaiser’s Noventa Cutter has Advanced Geometry for Front, Back Chamfering
Tool transforms chamfering process to improve cycle time, tool life and surface quality.
Big Kaiser’s Noventa Cutter
Big Kaiser’s Noventa from Sphinx, part of its milling cutter lineup, is said to be well suited for 90-degree front and back chamfering, as well as deburring holes up to 4xD. Chamfering the entry and exit of 0.80 mm to 6.0 mm holes can be a tedious, time-consuming process, but the company says that the Noventa can transform this process using an innovative geometry that improves cycle time, tool life and surface quality.
Finished holes and parts are often deburred using inefficient operations that lack repeatability. Noventa is equipped with four flutes and four coolant channels to optimize performance and cycle time for these operations.
The company says that Noventa offers longer tool life through the use of modern double-layer coating techniques. This milling tool is said to also provide great surface finish due to its reinforced shank diameter and edge-breaking capabilities, which is a critical final step for creating a part that looks and feels like a finished product and is safe to handle.
Having strategies in place for managing chips is an important part of protecting the production process, from tool life to product quality.
CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
An ongoing effort towards more efficient operations drove this shop to take a closer look at indirect material usage, subsequently leading to implementation of a new system for tracking toolroom inventory.
