MMS AUGUST 2018 196 JEDD COLE | EDITOR | IMTS 2018 Cutting Tools and Tooling ON DISPLAY Thread Milling Tool Reduces Premature Insert Failure Tungaloy's ThreadMilling ETLN series of indexable thread milling tools enables a single cutter body to use different thread profiles and pitches for various opera- tions. The multiple-flute cutters incorporate inserts 25 mm (1") in length to improve machining efficiency. The multiple-flute design is available for tools rang- ing from 17 mm in diameter (with two flutes) to 30 mm in diameter (with five flutes). Each tool diameter features two different types of neck sizes, except for the 30-mm tool, which features one. Thread profiles are available in ISO metric, with pitches ranging from 1.5 to 3 mm; unified threads, from 20 to 8 TPI; and Whitworth, from 14 to 11 TPI. Double-sided inserts provide cost effectiveness. Loss-free screws for insert clamping reduce the need to remove screws from the cutter body to set the insert. An internal coolant system delivers coolant to the cutting edge and working surface during through-hole machin- ing, which contributes to surface quality and reduces premature insert failure. | Tungaloy America Inc. | West, Level 3 & Annex, Booth 431822 End Mills Enable Trochoidal Milling, Fine Finishing YG-1 Tool Co. will display the V7PlusA series of end mills, which features four- and six-flute models, and the Titanox series, which offers four- and five-flute models that provide better performance in heavy cut- ting, trochoidal milling and fine finishing, according to the company. The six-flute models from the V7PlusA series offer improved cutting geometry, making them more applica- ble to trochoidal and peel milling. For heavier cuts, the four-flute models provide variable-helix and unequal pitch design, which helps to eliminate vibration. | YG-1 Tool Co. | West, Level 3, Booth 432442
