WNT at Southern Manufacturing

Added to MTDCNC by WNT (UK) Ltd on 21 November 2012

Visitors to stand S48 at Southern Manufacturing over the 13-14 February 2013 will be among the first to see the latest introductions to WNT’s extensive range of indexable and solid carbide cutting tools. Taking centre stage will be two new grades developed for grooving applications in steel along with the company’s new C900 High Feed indexable insert drilling system.

The HCR1335 and HCN1345 insert grades are the latest additions to WNT’s Dragonskin range and take advantage of intensive development in substrate structure and tool coating to provide users with the combination of high cutting data and extended tool life when grooving  components manufactured from a wide spectrum of steels including alloyed steel.

HCR1335 provides increased process security and is extremely hard wearing, while for those wanting more ‘universal’ solution HCN1435 is the grade of choice. The combination of the grade, coating and chipbreaker design allow the inserts to be used over a wide range of applications, including parting off solid, tube and difficult, intermittent, cuts as well as side turning.

WNT is changing the face of indexable insert drilling with the introduction of the C900 High Feed Drill, which requires just a single insert style for the central and peripheral insert, This, combined with the creation of a universal grade for drilling is helping to  increase productivity, while at the same time reduce inventory and manufacturing costs.

Available in diameters ranging from 19 mm through to 32 mm and in 3x, 4x, and 45x diameter flute length as standard, the High Feed Drill is a stable and economical system. By making use of just one insert design, one grade of carbide and one geometry, WNT (UK) is helping to drive down manufacturing and inventory costs, without impacting on productivity. Each insert has up to four cutting edges and is manufactured from the CCN 1430 grade, with a PVD coating, which provides the optimum combination of toughness and wear resistance required for the drilling process.

The design of the drill body also plays an important role in process stability and the flutes of the C900 High Feed Drill are designed to work in conjunction with the insert geometry to give maximum chip flow. Cutter life is also extended by use of WNT’s Highlight coating, which protects the drill body from abrasion.

“During 2012 we highlighted how through specific product development, such as our HCN2125 turning inserts for stainless steel, or our solid carbide SCR milling cutters that WNT can make significant improvements in metalcutting productivity. With the new products that we are now introducing that trend of working with our customers to identify specific cutting tool requirements is continuing. We welcome the opportunity at Southern Manufacturing for customers to bring drawings, or even components, along for us to review their manufacturing methods,” says Glenn Stanton, WNT’s UK & Ireland Sales Manager.
