At EMO Milano 2015, the KOMET GROUP presented a full range of indexable insert milling cutters covering every milling task as a result of different topographies, substrates and coatings matched to each other. Alongside the well-established KOMET® Quatron hi.feed, KOMET® hi.aeQ and KOMET® hi.apQ milling cutter lines, six more milling cutter systems (four single-sided and two double-sided indexable inserts) are now available ex stock.
Some examples: The new KOMET® milling cutters include the KOMET® Q55-KCM (KOMET® copy-milling) copy miller that is particularly suitable for machining turbine blades, but can also be used very universally. The 45° KOMET® Q63-KFM (KOMET® face-milling) face-milling cutter is also part of the new product range. It is designed for face-milling operations with a cutting depth of up to 6.5 mm and a tooth feed of up to 0.5 mm. The KOMET® Q56-KHF (KOMET® high-feed) face-milling cutter is a particularly efficient tool. It was designed for high-feed applications and achieves a very high chip volume per unit of time. Its angled cutting edge also achieves optimum surface quality. The KOMET® Q43-KSM (KOMET® shoulder-milling) shoulder milling cutter produces shoulders that are step-free and are exactly 90° as a result of its soft-cutting geometry.
More than 70 new indexable inserts are available for the KOMET® milling cutters – from extremely soft-cutting topographies for machining in a way that protects the spindles on small to medium-sized machines to extremely stable cutting edges for hard machining. Four new kinds of high-performance cutting material which ensure an even longer tool life when machining steel and cast iron materials, high-strength or high-temperature resistant steels and titanium and titanium alloys are particularly notable. These are accompanied by high-performance coatings, which extend the range of standard coatings which already have very good properties.
With over 60 new basic body designs, the result is a full product range, ideal for handling all milling tasks, from face, shoulder and chamfer milling to straight, 45° and T-slot milling, circular and plunge milling, angled plunge milling and free-form milling.
