TOOLING AND WORKHOLDING MMS JUNE 2018 154 Carbide Milling Tool Roughs, Finishes Stainless Steel The Fight- Max milling tool series from Inova- tools now offers the FightMax Inox VHM-HPC roughing and finishing milling cutter, designed for milling inox, otherwise known as stainless steel. The special geome- try and chip clearance, the defined cutting edge prepa- ration and microgeometry, and the high-performance coating all prepare the cutter for meeting the cutting requirements of stainless steel. For example, the rapid chip clearance of the tool reliably keeps stainless steel chips from bonding and sticking. Available in short and long versions with diameters ranging from 6 to 20 mm, the four-edged carbide tool uses an unevenly split and twisted geometry with a highly polished chip space to provide quiet, vibra- tion-free concentricity as well as quick and reliable chip removal. These features enable it to mill a variety of stainless steel grades, despite the heat buildup and toughness associated with the material. The Duocon coating, combined with the tool's microgeometric fea- tures, lengthens service life. | Inovatools USA LLC 810-444-8745 Slim Toolholder Enables Deep Clearance The slim design of Big Kai- ser's HDC Straight Shank toolholder improves balance and concentricity in addi- tion to enabling it to reach into confined areas. The holders can be clamped into other base holders to extend overall reach of the tool assembly and avoid the need for special tools. The slim-nose design provides the necessary clearance for use with deep workpiece access, making it effective for five-axis machining. Hydraulic chucks are suitable for machining processes that require high accuracy, including drills, reamers, ball mills, end mills, diamond reamers and grinding tools. | Big Kaiser 888-866-5776
