Ceratizit Product Update Enhances Cutting Tool Solutions

Ceratizit has released product developments and enhancements to its MaxiMill 273-08 face mill, WPC – Change Drill, as well as the HyPower Rough and HyPower Access 4.5-degree hydraulic chucks.

MaxiMill 273-08 is a series of double-sided, negative indexable octagon milling inserts with up to 16 cutting edges per insert designed for applications requiring short machining times with deeper cuts up to 6 mm. The milling cutter is said to be well-suited for automotive industry mass production where engine blocks must be milled on the cutting and mounting surfaces, for example. The MaxiMill 273-08 combines the advantages of negative indexable inserts that use both sides of the cutting edges with positive indexable inserts and their ideal installation position.

The ONKU 080608 indexable insert for the MaxiMill 273-08 is available with geometries and grades for machining steel and cast iron. The high insert thickness of the ONKU 08 (s=6.5 mm) and the large corner angle of 135 degrees improve stability and help make the system highly reliable, even with high chip removal rates and unmanned operation.

Ceratizit has also updated its WPC solid carbide drill with an exchange system. The WPC – Change Drill is designed for quick changeovers and the rod peeling inserts lowest possible material usage. Consisting of a wear-resistant steel base body, the WPC – Change enables manufacturers to replace physical vapor deposition-coated (PVD) carbide exchangeable cutting inserts clamped at the side with a clamping screw. The configuration makes changing the cutting insert quick and easy, even in the machine, without risk of incorrect assembly.

The base body of the WPC – Change features a cylindrical shank that is suitable for multiple uses with a clamping flat and through-coolant. Two face-side outlets direct coolant precisely to the cutting edge to reduce heat and tool wear. Exchangeable inserts can produce holes with diameters of 14 – 30 mm and hole depths of 3 × D and 5 × D on all machines.

The WPC – Change and matching WPC – Change UNI, suited for Cutting Tool Inserts steel and cast-iron materials, are said to be resource-friendly and cost-effective alternatives to solid carbide drills while still delivering the same performance.

Lastly, Ceratizit’s HyPower Rough and HyPower Access 4.5-degree hydraulic chucks offer stability and precision with low radial runout and strong clamping force. Vibration damping reduces spindle load while extending tool life and providing exceptional part surface quality.

The HyPower Rough hydraulic chuck provides robust performance for roughing in dynamic milling operations. Best suited for tools using an HA shank, the chuck performs in high temperatures ranging from 80-210-degrees Celsius during long milling cycles in excess of 240 minutes. It is designed to provide process security and high chip removal.

For precision finishing, reaming and drilling applications, Ceratizit designed the HyPower Access 4.5-degree hydraulic chuck for the requirements of a wide range of markets, including tool and die production, aerospace and automotive manufacturing. Previously, only shrink-fit chucks could be used to machine certain components due to their small number of interference contours. The HyPower Access 4.5-degree chucks feature dimensions exactly matched to those of a shrink-fit chuck (DIN contour with 4.5 degrees).

Seco Tools' JETI Toolholders Feature Interference Free Internal Coolant Capabilities

Additions to Seco Tools’ JETI (Jetstream Integrated) toolholders are said to eliminate the components and connectors commonly required for coolant-through tooling that hinder grooving, parting-off and other turning operations. With interference-free internal coolant capabilities and the option to switch the underside stream channel on and off, these expansions to the range of MDT (multi-directional turning), X4 (grooving and parting-off) and 150.10 (parting-off)DNMG Insert toolholders add operational stability and reliability while improving surface finishes.

To optimize machining, chip control and process reliability, JETI tooling aims high-pressure coolant directly to the cutting zone through internal channels in the tool holder. JETI Duo incorporates upper and lower cooling channels with the ability to activate or deactivate the underside stream. Side and back coolant connections enable these holders to function on machines with conventional coolant delivery systems.

JETI enables Tungsten Carbide Inserts application flexibility of coolant delivery without external hoses, fittings and spare parts that can diminish productivity and raise costs, the company says. Square-shanked MDT, X4 and 150.10 holders are available in sizes of 20 × 20 mm and 25 × 25 mm sizes. MDT holders accept inserts from 2 to 8 mm, and 105.10 toolholders accept size-15 blades.

CAM Software Optimized for Multitasking Machining

GibbsCAM 13 from 3D Systems has been updated to provide a streamlined user experience, additional milling and turning capabilities and an enhanced G-code editor.  

GibbsCAM 13 is said to be the only software currently offering elliptical turning, interpolation turning and eccentric turning, which combine to enable full functionality for multitasking machines. Elliptical Turning enables the user to turn parts on any machine that has an gun drilling inserts accommodating axis for machining, such as four-axis mills, mill-turns and boring machines. Interpolation Turning allows the user to cut a turning-style path by orienting a lathe insert toward a centerline while moving three linear axes and as many as three rotary axes. That way, turning operations can now be performed on milling and boring machines as well as turning centers with orientable spindles. Eccentric Turning facilitates turning operations for shapes not aligned with the center axis of a part (for example, cutting of lobes on a crankshaft or camshaft) eliminating costly setups and fixturing. 

Autobar Chamfer is offered for the first time in this release of GibbsCAM, enabling the user to define automatic chamfering of stock to eliminate burrs, said to be especially useful on Swiss-type lathes.

Broaching enables programming and simulation of linear and rotary broaches from the GibbsCAM interface. A full set of broaching tools are included; alternatively, the user can create custom broaches. Full broaching capabilities are available for milling and turning.

The 5-Axis Deburring module automatically programs deburring operations when the user selects geometry, surfaces or an entire model.

Advanced Approach Lathe Inserts and Retract Control provides specification of tool movement before and after cutting moves. The user can select part geometry to dictate tool movement, creating accurate and safe tool paths when custom retracts are needed.

Expanded face-milling capabilities allow the user to prepare stock efficiently for subsequent machining operations.
