ISCAR TIP TALK - ISCAR Indexable Shell Mills with A Titanium Body

What is the main application of indexable shell mills with a Titanium body? Titanium-body indexable shell mills are intended for long-reach machining applications. One of the most important factors in long-reach machining applications is dynamic stability. Indexable shell mills are traditionally made from steel which due to its relatively high density, might have stability problems in long-reach machining applications. Reducing the weight of the mill body contributes to improved dynamic stability. However, weight reduction should not impair the strength characteristics of the tool. Due to its low density and high strength characteristics, Titanium can be an excellent replacement for steel when designing shell-mills for long-reach machining applications. Titanium also features excellent corrosion resistance with anti-wear properties. Using ISCAR's new production technology, the mill body is formed by a 3D printing method. By using this technology, tool body elements such as chip gullets and weight-reduction cavities having sophisticated forms, can now be produced. In addition, 3D printing technologies enable an optimal design of inner coolant channels. This ensures efficient pinpointed coolant through the body. To improve results and to achieve an excellent surface finish, it is recommended to mount the milling cutter on tool holders with an anti-vibration mechanism, such as ISCAR's WHISPER LINE adaptors.
