The square milling cutters feature V bottom inserts and secure insert retention, enabling high-speed milling of aluminum alloys and other non-ferrous materials. The cutters ensure stability and efficiency in shouldering, slotting and profiling applications at elevated cutting speeds, the company says.
The use of lightweight, high-strength aluminum alloys is increasing across many industries to reduce environmental burdens. More specifically, the aerospace industry is using aluminum alloys for large aircraft components to meet weight reduction requirements for improved fuel efficiency.
Sometimes a shop doesn’t do enough turning work to justify the purchase of a CNC lathe. But when it needs to produce precision turned parts, even if for a very small lot size, the shop needs a solution.
