ITC has a ball with new End Mill line

ITC has a ball with new End Mill line

Added to MTDCNC by ITC LTD on 01 December 2014

Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has once again extended its extensive line of aluminium milling tools with the introduction of the new 2172 Cyber Series of two flute ball nosed end mills. Designed specifically for high feed machining with impeccible surface finishes, under test conditions the new 2172 Series surpasses the performance levels of competitor milling lines.

Developed by the R&D team at ITC's manufacturing facility in Tamworth, the solid carbide two flute ball nosed line is manufactured from an ultra wear resistant micro-grain carbide. The benefit of this high quality carbide composition is that edge wear and chipping are minimised to extend tool life. For manufacturers working on production runs, this gives consistency and longevity with no unforeseen tool changeover requirements. Additionally, for end users in prototype and small batch production environments, the astounding tool life reduces inventory requirements and tooling costs.

The specialists at ITC have created this new line based upon continuous testing and feasibility studies with globally renown OEMs in the aerospace and motorsport industries. The result is a straight shank, right hand helix and centre cutting range that excels in swarf evacuation to deliver outstanding surface finishes whilst cutting at speeds and feeds beyond competitor products. Incorporating an innovative new flute geometry, the 2172 Series removes swarf from the cutting area with such haste that swarf re-cutting or collection around the cutting area will never be an issue.

Suitable for machining aluminium and other non-ferrous materials, the 2172 Series has a geometry that has been optimised to guarantee rigidity and minimise vibration when cutting at high feed rates. The new line is available in diameters of 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20mm with matching shank diameters. The overall length of the end mills ranges from 40 to 100mm depending upon the chosen diameter with length of cut varying from 12 to 40mm. For more details on how this innovative new line can reduce your tooling costs and inventory whilst improving your productivity and surface finishes, please contact your local ITC representative.
