New milling cutters reduce machining time
CurveMax Inovatools introduced its CurveMax milling cutters for finishing complex free-form surfaces in molds and tools. The four-edged cutters come in tangential and conical shapes and are well-suited for finishing applications in five-axis machines using CAM software.
What’s new? CurveMax tools, which hit the market in September.
Benefits Shorter machining times. A cutter’s working radius is larger than that of a traditional full-radius mill with the same diameter. Therefore, it can cut more material per pass, cutting production time and increasing tool life by as much as 90 percent.
