Indexable Dovetail / Aluminum Milling Cutter Series
Along with the more and more precise development of CNC machine as well as more and more application of compound material, cutting tools play a more important role for machining. Traditional solid tool such as solid high-speed steel and solid carbide tool are replaced by indexable cutting tools for many items due to poor tool life or too expensive tool cost.
Several advantages of indexable cutting tool can effectively raise machining efficiency and lower cost:
1. Application of carbide insert. As teeth are worn out, it only needs to replace insert without abandoning the cutter body or regrinding it. It reduces problems of the instable life issue by regrinding. Meanwhile since carbide insert has always multiple edges available, the general cost among with the performance is lower than solid tools.
2. Indexable cutting tool has better shareability. The same carbide insert can be used on holder with different length or outer diameter. For example, the same insert mounted on dovetail cutter of 50° can also be mounted on dovetail cutter of 55° and thus saves the expense for tool cost.
With dovetail cutter and facemilling cutter for aluminum as examples, we design them as indexable carbide insert to help manufacturers to achieve better machining efficiency and thus raise the competitiveness on market.
Are you still using traditional solid dovetail cutter? Solid high-speed steel dovetail cutter is inexpensive, but the tool life is poor. Solid carbide dovetail cutter is expensive and the whole cutting tool needs to be abandoned once it is worn out or collided.Indexable dovetail cutter developed by YIH TROUN solves these two problems: three standard angles, two standard insert grades and two holder clamping designs.
In order to achieve better aluminum surface finishing, in addition to adjusting machining speed of working machine, angle design of cutting edge and precision of cutter are all important key factors.YIH TROUN achieves mirror-like aluminum alloy machining through following adjustable aluminum cutter design:
