ITC Extends Market Reach With Long Series PCD Tools

Established as one of the most successful UK manufactured cutting tool ranges, Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) Ltd has once again extended its renowned Cyber Series of cutting tools in line with the demands of the marketplace. The Tamworth manufacturer has now launched its new 2151 Cyber Series range of end mills for the machining of graphite, glass and carbon fibre composites.

Taking note of the ever changing demands of industry, the R&D team at ITC has developed the 2151 Cyber Series of 2 flute end mills for the machining of difficult to reach features on abrasive components. With graphite, glass fibre and carbon fibre components and assemblies becoming ever more prominent in the UK's aerospace and motorsport sectors, ITC has introduced the extra long length 2151 Series to improve accessibility to hard to reach surfaces. 

The 2151 Series is manufactured from a solid carbide micro grain shank improves rigidity and reduces vibration when machining faces and features in deep cavities. With an overall tool length of 150mm, this ability to minimise vibration and chatter significantly improves surface finish whilst enhancing the tool life. In particular, this tool rigidity enhances the edge chipping resistance of the PCD cutting edges. To further extend the resistance to edge chipping when machining at high speeds and feeds, the 2151 is supplied with a 0.2mm corner radius as standard. 

The geometry and design of the 2151 Series permits centre cutting whilst demonstrating impressive heat dissipation characteristics. The new range is available with the choice of an 8, 10 or 12mm diameter with a length of cut from 10 to 12mm. To maximise rigidity and cutting performance, the 2151 Series is provided shank diameters of 8, 10 and 12mm with a maximum reach capability of 40 to 45mm depending upon the chosen diameter tool. To maximise machining performance when cutting such abrasive and difficult materials, ITC recommends that customers implement high quality and precise tool holding systems, especially in the case of low powered machine tools. For details on how ITC can enhance your abrasive material machining with the 2151 Series and also information on the company's high-end range of toolholding solutions from BIG KAISER, please contact your local ITC representative.
