Ti-HPC is the titanium milling solution

WNT (UK) has released a new range of solid carbide High Performance Cutters (HPC) for the machining of titanium. These new, Ti-HPC cutters sit in WNT’s Mastertool range and are proving to be somewhat of a revelation in terms of cutting data and tool life for customers machining titanium and other alloys.

Machining, particularly milling, of titanium and titanium alloys has long posed problems due to excessive tool wear, localised heat and low cutting data. WNT has risen to these challenges and has introduced its Ti-HPC range for titanium milling. With cutting data increased by as much as 75 per cent and tool life extended by between typically 3 and 5 times, and in some cases a 10-fold increase.

The success of the WNT Ti-HPC titanium cutters lies in the extensive R&D undertaken to develop a cutter design that greatly reduces the cutting forces, this in turn allows the much higher cutting a data to be applied. The range of Ti-HPC milling cutters currently starts at 4 mm diameter through to 20 mm diameter, with flute lengths up to 41 mm and a wide choice of corner radii.

“With the growth in use of materials such as titanium, maintaining competitive advantage over your competitors grows more important by the day,” says Tony Pennington, Managing Director, WNT (UK). “This latest development from WNT provides that competitive edge, through increased productivity, reduced tooling costs and less machine downtime. Our team of Technical Sales Engineers are available to assist in any cutting trials that you may want to undertake and to explain how Ti-HPC for titanium can improve your machining performance.

Typical cutting data examples for Ti-HPC:
Material: 3.7164.1 (Ti6Al4V)    
Surface speed = 80 m/min
Feed per tooth (fz) = 0,07 mm
Axial depth of cut  (ap) = 12 mm
Radial depth of cut (ae) = 4 mm
Tool life: 25 metres

Jet engine component:
Material Inconel 718
Surface speed (Vc): 58 m/min (previously 35 m/min)
Feed per tooth (fz): 0.06mm (previously 0.04 mm)
Axial depth of cut (ap): 16 mm
Radial depth of cut (ae): 4 mm
Tool life: 8 metres (previously 1.5 metres)
