ITC at North East Manufacturing 2015

ITC at North East Manufacturing 2015

Added to MTDCNC by ITC LTD on 07 May 2015

Industry leading cutting tool manufacturer, Industrial Tooling Corporation (ITC) will exhibit at Manufacturing & Engineering North East 2015 with its new line of high performance solid carbide and indexable milling, drilling, turning, boring, toolholding and threading products.

ITC is a UK distributor of high quality and performance products from globally renowned manufacturers such as Widia, BIG Daishowa, KAISER and Micro 100. With a selection of products from each of these manufacturers available on the stand, ITC will have something for everyone at the event.

As a UK manufacturer, ITC will be introducing its three fluted 3091 Series radius tool that is synonymous with rapid material removal rates and long tool life when cutting aluminium. The impressive new line offers an extended reach for cavity machining and the processing of complex geometries. With a long overall length and extended reach, the tool life and consistency of the new radius tool is setting standards within the aerospace and motorsport sectors.

Also on show for machining aluminium and non-ferrous components will be the new 2201 Series of two flute long length end mills. The innovative new end mill range has a radical new flute geometry that provides remarkable swarf clearance and impeccable surface finishes when machining at high feed rates on deep cavities and difficult to reach surfaces and profiles. Designed by ITC's R&D department that is committed to innovation, the new series is an evolution from previous aluminium cutters. The new geometries on the 2201 Series enable it to eliminate vibration and chatter whilst machining at depths up to 60mm at high feed rates. The 2201 Series is available as either a square end cutter or with a radius.

For processing difficult materials such as graphite, metal matrix, composites, Kevlar, carbon fibre and additional abrasive materials, ITC will be showing its 2111 and 2102 series of end mills. Both cutters serve as an extension to the extremely popular Cyber Series of ITC cutting tools and incorporate a two flute PCD design with a solid carbide shank and necking for extra reach. Each cutter in the range has a length of cut that matches its diameter and a corner radius that sees both attributes combine to provide exceptional strength and rigidity when machining.  Like the 2111, the new 2102 Series has a solid carbide shank for maximum rigidity with PCD brazed tips for enhanced tool life and productivity when machining abrasive materials.

To complement the ITC range, the Tamworth tooling specialist will also introduce the new Widia VariMill II ER. Added to the already successful VariMill I and VariMill II product lines, the new VariMill II ER end mills are engineered with five unequally spaced flutes. Evolving from these previous products, the VariMill II ER has an eccentric relief (ER) available to provides greater edge strength and permit higher feed and metal-removal rates. The VariMill II ER end mill has a different taper core than the VariMill I and VariMill II. So, stability is increased for a robust performance whilst it has also been designed for centre cutting.

The Tamworth manufacturer will also be showing a complete range of indexable cutting tools from Widia and this will include the WIDIA Victory high-performance milling cutter for multiple functions such as shoulder milling, slotting, pocket milling, ramping and helical interpolation. With a wide variety of grades, the latest WIDIA Victory™ milling line can be applied to a variety of workpiece materials. The new VSM11 line provides  versatility for a wide range of applications as it has been specifically engineered and optimized to provide higher productivity for job shops.

The performance of these new product lines can be enhanced by robust toolholding solutions that are now offered by ITC, since it recently became a UK re-seller for the BIG Daishowa Seiki line of toolholders and also the KAISER brand of high precision boring tools. The BIG Daishowa brand is the market leader in Japan and it is a name synonymous with high quality precision toolholders that lead the market in clamping forces, concentricity and the consequent enhancement of tool life.

This range is complemented by the BIG line of indexable insert tooling that is remarkably diverse and caters for a range of milling, turning and boring applications,  BIG Daishowa has enjoyed a longstanding partnership with the high end Swiss boring specialist KAISER. As the UK's leading carbide tooling specialist, ITC is delighted to give its UK exhibition debut of this range at the  Manufacturing & Engineering North East 2015 show.
