Shoulder Milling Cutter Expands to Inches
Dormer Pramet’s shoulder milling range has been expanded with a program of inch cutters, geometries and inserts.
The inch version of the Dormer Pramet Helical AD for roughing applications is now available. Offering a cut as deep as 3.15", the cutters are especially useful
According to the company, the large clearance between the cutting teeth, combined with internal coolant delivery, promotes efficient chip evacuation. The axial clamping of inserts on the end teeth is said to increase milling stability. The company says this design minimizes noise and vibration. The surface treatment of the body is nickel plated for resistance to corrosion and lower abrasion.
Having strategies in place for managing chips is an important part of protecting the production process, from tool life to product quality.
Here's a broad look at different ways to approach workholding, from bar feeders to collet chucks to robotics.
Some primary factors are often overlooked when considering how to justify the implementation of a bar feeder for turning operations.
