Modern Machine Shop 211 IMTS 2018 Cutting Tools and Tooling Variable-Helix End Mills Minimize Chatter Mastercut Tool Corp.'s V4 Ultra line of end mills combines variable-helix, four- flute geometry with a honed cutting edge and PowerN (nACo) coating. The PowerN coating carries a blue to red color. At approximately 4,500 Vickers hardness, the coating is tough. Performing best in rigid setups, it is said to be useful in applications involving superalloys, hard materials, and high- heat applications. According to the company, the coating reduces friction, enables increased speeds and feeds, and improves tool life. The end mill geometry is designed to interrupt chat- ter for gains in longevity, throughput and surface finish in materials ranging from cast iron to steel to titanium. | Mastercut Tool Corp. | West, Level 3, Booth 431245 Three-Edged High Speed Steel Drill Maintains Tool Life Mapal's Tritan-Drill series of three-edged drills now includes an HSS version for small-series production. According to the company, the shape of the main cutting edge makes the HSS drill robust even in difficult conditions. Stable cutting edge corners reduce damage to the cutting edge for smooth machining. The coat- ing of the drill suits a range of different materials and increases tool life. The drill features point geometry designed to elim- inate piloting and center-punching. According to the company, it achieves higher feed rates than twin-edged HSS drills. With a pronounced tip reducing the chance of slipping over the chisel edge, it can also be used with hand drilling units. Diameters range from 8 to 40 mm. | Mapal Inc. | West, Level 3, Booth 431400 PROFILING PARTING SPECIAL TOOLING BORING DOVETAIL FACE GROOVING FORM TOOLING 888 - THINBIT • 888-THINFAX • THINBIT.COM Made in the U.S.A.
