The iMX series has received a favourable reception in the market place as a revolutionary end mill system that provides excellent economy and enables efficiency, high accuracy and rigidity by combining the advantages of both solid carbide and indexable end mills. Overall rigidity close to that of a solid type end mills is realized because the clamping faces of the holder and head are both manufactured from carbide. The iMX end mill series has been further expanded to include iMX-B3FV, a 3 flute ball nose end mill with irregular helix flutes to allow a wider range of applications to be machined. Features of the iMX-B3FV, 3 flute ball nose end mill with irregular helix flutes
1. iMX-B3FV has variable pitch geometry flutes with a high helix angle to provide excellent fracture resistance and superior chip disposal when roughing. Additionally this offers higher efficiency when finish machining.
2. iMX-B3FV has a back taper cutting edge geometry to prevent vertical wall interference during pocketing up to 5 x D depth. This feature also reduces vibration for higher efficiency machining.
3. New EP8120 grade with excellent wear resistance is suitable for machining hot forging dies.
