Ingersoll Cutting Tools will show its Hi-QuadF™ line of high-feed cutters—offered with a 13-mm and a 19-mm IC quad-style insert, which provides four cutting edges with a choice of eight different cutting edge geometries. The maximum depth of cut ranges from 0.088" for the 13-mm IC insert to 0.145" for the 19-mm IC insert.
According to the company, premium insert grades coupled with optimal edge preparations ensure long tool life, even under the most demanding applications across the widest range of materials. A positive axial insert orientation creates a high-shear, free-cutting nature for the Hi-QuadF cutters. Chip thinning is leveraged to a factor of 5× when calculating feed rates. A new, robust insert screw design secures the insert in the pocket, ensuring cutter performance and insert seating stability.
