ISCAR TECH TALK - NEOFEED - Efficient Rough Milling, Increased Productivity and Cost Savings

NEOFEED is ISCAR's new milling tool family for highly efficient rough milling and assured increased productivity and cost savings. NEOFEED incorporates indexable double-sided inserts with 8 cutting edges for ultimate production results. The new NEOFEED cutters are available in the diameter range of 50-100 mm in two shell mill design configurations. - The first one is the FFQ8 FSZ-12 and has a 12-degree cutting edge angle for milling with extremely high feeds per tooth - known as fast feed milling at depths of cut of up to 1.5 mm. - The second cutter, the MFQ8 FSZ-12 has a 22-degree cutting edge angle and is intended for moderate feed milling at depths of cut of up to 3 mm. The new shell mills can carry the same double-sided square inserts with 8 cutting edges. When the NEOFEED tool is mounted, the insert enables a positive tool rake angle. This guarantees smooth cutting, reduced cutting forces and power consumption. The insert pocket has a dove tail shape that provides rigid and reliable insert clamping and improves the cutter's capability to withstand heavy load. These features enable increased cutting conditions for better productivity and ensure improved tool life. The new shell mill cutters feature a pitch option for 50-100 mm cutters. This feature extends the range of application options for roughing, specifically in the die and mold, aerospace, and general engineering industries. The FFQ8 SZMU 120520 is characterized by its double-sided square insert with 8 cutting edges and a high strength body structure. It is a specially designed insert with a 2 mm corner radius which has a reinforced cutting edge for increased insert robustness when milling near a wall. The FFQ8 SZMU 120520T insert is intended for steel, ferritic and martensitic stainless steel, cast iron and hardened steel, which belong to the ISO P, K, and H application groups. And the distinct features of the FFQ8 SZMU 120520HP insert is its ability to machine austenitic stainless steel, titanium and high temperature alloys, which belong to the M and ISO S application groups. In addition to the unique features introduced for each of the inserts, they are all produced from ISCAR's advanced carbide grades with a post coating treatment technology that guarantees longer tool life and high productivity. The innovative features of the new cutters can be appreciated by their fine pitch design for increased metal removal rates. The coolant holes are directed to each cutting edge, which assures improved productivity while the protective coating on the cutter body provides better chip flow and protection from corrosion and wear. I would like to remind you to download the ISCAR World app which features the revolutionary NEO-ITA for achieving optimal machining results. https://www.iscar.com/newarticles.aspx/countryid/1/newarticleid/2978 #ISCAR, #Milling, #NEOFEED, #CuttingEdges, #HighFeed, #MillCutters, #TechTalk




Productivity and Cost-Effective in High Feed Milling NEOFEED, a family of milling cutters carrying indexable square double-sided inserts with 8 cutting edges provides an advantageous tool for productive and cost-efficient rough machining. The high feed milling (HFM) cutters are intended for machining with extremely high feed per tooth at shallow depths of cut, while the moderate feed milling cutters are applied when machining up to a twofold depth with lower feed. Moderate feed is less than HFM, but still very common. When mounted on a NEOFEED mill, the square double-sided insert enables a positive tool rake angle to ensure smooth cutting and reduce cutting forces and power consumption. The insert pocket has a dovetail shape that provides rigid and reliable insert clamping, protects the insert from disengaging, and improves the mill capability to withstand against heavy load. https://www.iscar.com/Products.aspx/CountryID/1/ProductId/12397 Download ISCAR WORLD, the virtual "one stop shop" app that features all ISCAR's online apps, interfaces, and product catalogs in a single space: https://www.iscar.com/newarticles.aspx/countryid/1/newarticleid/2978 View our Catalogs and brochures: https://www.iscar.com/newarticles.aspx/countryid/1/newarticleid/2393 #ISCAR, #NEOFEED, #Milling, #Profilling, #SolidCarbide, #HPC, #Shouldering, #Plunging, #Facing, #Slotting, #Slitting, #HFM, FMR, #ThreadMilling, #Inserts, #Interpolation, #MetalCuttingTools, #DoubleSidedinserts, #HighFeedMilling, #Indexable, #MillingCutters
