ITC Extends Its Aluminium Milling Reach With New Series

ITC Extends Its Aluminium Milling Reach With New Series

Added to MTDCNC by ITC LTD on 15 April 2017
To ensure the ever evolving demands of its customer base are met, Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) has now developed yet another innovative new end mill series. The latest end mill series to arrive from the visionary R&D team at ITC is the new 3301 Cyber Series for the machining of deep cavities in aluminium components. 

The new 3301 Series 3-flute aluminium roughing tool is a particularly long, yet extremely stable end mill that has the capacity to effectively machine inside cavities where competitor tools cannot reach. Designed for heavy-duty aluminium removal applications, the new 3301 Series has knuckled outer edge geometry for robust roughing with rapid swarf evacuation. 

The centre-cutting solid carbide series is available in 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 and 20mm diameters with the shank diameter identical to the cutting diameter. This maximises the stability and rigidity of the tool as it reaches into difficult to access faces and corners. Furthermore, when the optimised shank dimensions are combined with the edge and flute geometry, the new 3301 Series offers scintillating performance levels.

Ensuring the 3301 Series can reach such inaccessible areas, ITC has 'necked' the tool to offer maximum clearance and guarantee that shank interference with the workpiece is a thing of the past. This allows the respective diameters to offer a cutting edge of reach up to 18, 24, 30, 36, 48 and 60mm. Despite this impressive reach range, the surface finish, tool life and overall stability are maintained by a geometry design that retains an 8 to 24mm cutting length depending upon the tool diameter selected.  As well as its impressive reach characteristics, the 3301 Series has been manufactured with an overall tool length from 90mm for the 6mm diameter tool up to 150mm for the 20mm diameter cutter. The extended neck length and overall length of the 3301 Series offers some major benefits to aerospace manufacturers continually machining pockets and cavities.

The respective tool diameters have a neck diameter of 5.6mm, 7.5m 9, 11, 14.8 and 18.7mm with the 18 to 60mm reach. However, as a UK manufacturer ITC can extend the neck length or alter the neck diameter to accommodate the specific demands of the customer.
