The FlyCutter series represent a new dimension in face milling for HSC operations.

The series includes numerous innovations.

By using replaceable milling cartridges the reduction in logistics costs from handling is impressive, likewise the positioning of the milling blade in the aluminium tool body. 

Centrifugal forces which occur during machining are compensated for by a precision dovetail guide. 

The new arrangement of the milling blades with integral swarf protection plate clearly increases the life of the milling cutter body.

Perfect surface finish is achieved with this milling cutter as a result of the sensitive and effective wedge adjustment on the blades in the Z direction. 

Initially designed for finishing operations, this milling head is notable for extremely quiet running which it easily achieves despite the high feed rates.

For this modular system all the components have been matched. All different milling head diameters can be mounted on the same milling cutter arbor to suit the size of your part.

The selection of the PCD milling cartridges is dependent on the part or on the surface to be produced.

The milling cartridges are very easy to change and can be adjusted axially to the µm. You will find an appropriate setting fixture on page 11 of the PDF manual.

The FlyCutter was specially developed for very soft, long-chipping aluminium.

This system with its PCD milling cartridges demonstrates its abilities during finishing even on thin-walled parts. Due to the special cutting geometry, the part is machined without any stress whatsoever; as a result no stresses are produced in the part and deformation of the part is also prevented.

The low cutting forces also permit the machining of vacuum-clamped parts.

The specially developed large chip spaces on the milling cartridges and the milling heads ensure, particularly with long-chipping aluminium, that the chips produced are quickly transported away from the surface to be machined.

The weight reduction achieved during the development of this milling head system now also permits the usage of larger diameters on small machines without exceeding the weight limit.

The milling cartridges are very easy to set using a wedge. The finely balanced components guarantee extremely quiet operation. MAPAL FlyCutters can therefore withstand high spindle speeds, significantly reducing machining time.
