Materials used in the mould and die industry are becoming progressively harder, prompting the development of a range of ball nose end mills that deliver long tool life when machining them. This is achieved by utilising a newly developed coating named IMPACT MIRACLE REVOLUTION. This provides better wear resistance and high lubricity as well as high adhesion to the ultra-fine grade carbide substrate. To expand the application options available, a new short shank type, VFR2SSB, has been added to the range.
Features of IMPACT MIRACLE REVOLUTION coated end mills
1. The combination of a newly-developed (Al,Cr,Si) N top coating layer with improved oxidation resistance and high lubricity, together with the (Al,Ti,Si) N base coating layer that provides improved wear resistance and high adhesion, realises an excellent overall resistance to wear when machining high hardened steels.
2. VFR2SSB, 2 flute ball nose end mills offer high edge strength by optimising the newly developed S-shaped negative cutting edge geometry.
