Iscar tech talk - iscar helialu super positive polished rake inserts

ISCAR expands the HELIALU line with super positive polished rake inserts. HELIALU inserts have a new sub-micron grade which assures higher productivity for machining aluminum and non-ferrous materials under the ISO N group of applications. Metal cutting technology has progressed tremendously over the past few years. It is evident that insert wear is a critical problem in metal cutting. It not only increases the production costs but also degrades the product quality. The HELIALU line is comprised of a large range of endmills and face mills which are especially designed for machining aluminum, mainly parts for the aviation industry. Insert features • Sharp, ground cutting edge for low cutting forces and a clean cut. • Polished rake face for excellent chip flow. • Positive cutting angles. • Clamping area of the insert is ground to provide full contact with the pocket for high precision. • Suitable for effective machining of various aluminum grades such as 2024 and 7075 among other types. • HELIALU inserts can withstand high cutting and centrifugal loads. • The inserts are designed for both roughing and finishing applications. ISCAR's new HELIALU inserts show precise, safe and stable machining results capable of performing highly complicated operations with increased feed rates. ISCAR’s customers can choose tougher and harder grades to achieve increased productivity. Machining aluminum with ISCAR's hard-wear resistant sub-micron carbide grade IC08, maintains the insert’s cutting-edge sharpness for longer periods of time. This contributes greatly to stable machining and longer tool life, which enables milling aluminum and aluminum-lithium alloys at very high feed rates.

ISCAR INDUSTRY TALK - ISCAR's Solutions for Machining Torque Links

Landing gear is typically split into three basic wheel arrangements: conventional, tandem and tricycle-type. Beyond this, landing gear is classified as either fixed or retractable. The torque link, which is a part of the landing gear, is a hinged link between the piston and the cylinder of an oleo-type landing gear shock absorber. The torque link allows the piston to move freely in and out of the landing gear cylinder - but prevents it from rotating. During the touchdown phase of an aircraft, the landing gear system is impacted by hundreds of tons. Torque links are commonly made of titanium alloys. The material is expensive and difficult to machine, and therefore stock parts are forged near to shape. ISCAR has developed a series of tools which can be used to efficiently produce torque links: TANGPLUNGE Shell Mill Plungers, which carry tangentially clamped Inserts with 4 Cutting Edges are a proper solution for long reach applications from top to bottom as they are well known for its name “Z” level machining. This modern design of plunger tools and inserts provide stable machining with less cutting force and less deflection. MILL4FEED are Fast Feed Face Mills Carrying Single-Sided Inserts with 4 Cutting Edges. The correct cutting edge provides smooth cutting and reduced cutting forces and power consumption. The small lead angle of the Mill4Feed face mill allows high feed milling for titanium at a high feed rate per tooth and makes this tool perfect for long overhang applications. The pocket shape provides rigid and reliable insert clamping and improves the cutter’s capability under heavy loads. Titanium alloys are difficult to cut materials, therefore, the XQuad Extended flute shell mills carrying single-sided Inserts with 4 cutting edges is the best choice because of its excellent solution for depth shouldering. The Single sided insert with its proper release angle has a positive axial position on the cutter body. The cutter body is equipped with high pressure nozzles to meet the flow rate and supplied coolant pressure. XQuad’s extended flute shell mills ensure full use of modern high-efficiency machines to provide the necessary level of metal removal rate (MRR) and tool life required by the industry for new solutions from cutting tool manufacturers. The HELI6FEED Fast feed face mill carries double-sided inserts with 6 cutting edges. Their unique pocket “V” shaped design provides very stable insert clamping and allows machining with heave conditions. Helical interpolation at long overhang applications demands smooth cutting to assure a successful operation. HELIOCTO Face mills with a lead angle of 42°, carrying an octagonal insert with 8 cutting edges is a very economical solution. The insert has positive rake and sharp cutting edges. It’s advanced cutting geometry reduces cutting forces and provides smooth cutting. All these parameters together with the appropriate insert grade IC882, make this tool an excellent solution for finish facing operations. The unique coolant solution, which comes from bottom of the tool, helps to keep the machined surface clean. ISCAR’s unique Multi-Master product line is well-known thanks to its high reliability and high dimensional repeatability. The expanded MULTI-MASTER product line includes a full range of diameters and radiuses dedicated to titanium alloys machining. The new MM ECK… milling heads have 6 and 5 cutting edges with ISCAR CHATTERFREE features. All these features significantly improve tool dynamic behavior and ensures stable cutting in various milling applications, even in unfavorable machining conditions. ISCAR’s ITSBORE system, with tangentially clamped Inserts is based on tangential inserts with 4 cutting edges. Its robust structure of tangential clamping enables the cartridge to withstand heavy duty machining of titanium allows materials. This unique system was designed for machining deep holes.

ISCAR recently introduced a new family of tools designed for rough and semi-finishing operations intended for highly efficient face milling applications, primarily for steel and cast-iron. The HELIDO S890 tool line offers versatile and cost-effective tools for productive milling of varying cutting conditions. The new HELIDO face mills feature a 90-degree cutting edge angle and mount double-sided square inserts with 8 cutting edges. The new cutters have a face mill design configuration and are available in a diameter range of 40-125 mm. The advanced design of the face mills combines a strong insert structure, a durable cutter body, secure mounting, and advanced carbide grades. This innovative solution enables face and square shoulder milling while providing an additional option for milling close to shoulders where there are workpiece or work holding fixture constraints. The unique features of the double-sided square, pressed-to-size inserts are: - their 8 helical right-hand cutting edges for machining at depths of cut up to 5 mm - the specially shaped rake face to ensure a positive rake and low cutting forces - a strong and durable insert structure - a wide wiper flat for improving surface finish - an effective and economical solution for face and square shoulder milling - they are produced from superior SUMO-TEC carbide grades, which provide excellent performance and longer tool life. The following special features are unique to the new 90-degree cutting edge angle milling cutters: - their ability to machine a maximum 5 mm depth of cut. - extremely rigid screw clamped inserts due to the dovetail profile of the insert pocket. - their advanced cutting geometry which reduces cutting forces and assures smooth cutting and low power consumption. - the coarse and fine pitch configurations of the cutters. - higher tooth density for improved productivity. - coolant holes (up to 125 mm Diameter cutters) directed to each cutting edge for efficient cooling and chip evacuation. - a highly economical solution that provides an optimal price per cutting edge. - excellent performance for diverse machining conditions and interrupted cuts The machined materials are mainly ISO P (steel, ferritic and martensitic stainless steel) and ISO K (cast iron) application groups, and the advantages are: • Productivity: to ensure high metal removal rates • Economical: inserts with 8 helical cutting edges • Reliability: high process machining stability I would like to remind you to download the ISCAR World app which features the revolutionary NEO-ITA for achieving optimal machining results. #ISCAR; #Milling; #NEODO; #TECHTALK; #MetalCuttingTools
