TaeguTec Launches New Milling Line

TaeguTec Launches New Milling Line

Added to MTDCNC by Taegutec on 27 May 2016

TaeguTec has launched two new five edged insert line. The new RTMX and RTHX with related cutters have been designed for the stainless steel and difficult-to-cut materials used in the aerospace, oil and gas and power generation industries.

As part of the ChaseMold family, the RTMX and RTHX inserts have been rigorously tested on stainless steel, difficult-to-cut materials and turbine blade machining under severe machining conditions and in unstable fixtures. The RTMX is a press-to-size insert for economy while the RTHX ground type is dedicated towards high precision machining. Both inserts have a high positive rake angle for low cutting resistance. Both inserts come in 10 and 12mm sizes and the chip formers are available in three types: MM, ML and MLL. The MM is recommended for unstable conditions, the MLL for stable conditions and the ML covers the middle range between the MM and MLL types.

The two new lines are available in standard and special grades. The special grade is ideal for any machining environment, even harsh conditions and this is due to the high wear resistance and toughness capabilities.

The cutters are available in end mills (ø32mm), modular types (ø25-40mm) and also face mills (ø40-80mm) with all having through coolant facility for easy chip evacuation. During product testing, TaeguTec’s new ChaseMold lines achieved higher tool life and productivity than the competitors’ similar offering.

For tool life during the roughing operation of the airfoil, shroud and the root part of a blade made from martensitic stainless steel (X20Cr13, AISI 420), TaeguTec’s new 5-teeth RTMX line outlasted a leading competitor by 65 %. On a blade shroud and root roughing operation made from stainless steel (1.4923), the same RTMX line increased tool life by almost 30%.

In another test, TaeguTec’s RTMX completely annihilated the competition by increasing tool life by 100% while performing a spiral roughing operation on an airfoil part made from alloy special martensitic creep-resisting steel (1.4938 + QT, X12CrNiMoV12-3).

Concerning productivity, TaeguTec’s tests using the ChaseMold RTMX line on an aerospace engine case made from Waspaloy and Inconel 718 increased productivity by 65% over a competitor’s similar offering.
