Sandvik Coromant (Fair Lawn, NJ) has added a new, positive rake cutting geometry insert to its CoroMill 210 line of milling tools. The new sharper and lighter cutting geometry possesses a cutting edge, which allows for superior performance and productivity in plunge milling and high feed milling applications. This insert improves cutting performance across a variety of materials, including titanium, HRSA, tool steel and stainless steel. In addition to productivity gains, the insert provides longer tool life and produces a smoother cutting action. Machining noise is reduced substantially, as is power consumption. The insert’s unique design causes it to excel in productive plunge milling and high feed face milling; and its 10-degree entering angle allows for extreme feed rates at small axial depths of cut when face milling. The design also allows for high radial depths of cut when plunge cutting in rough operations. In high feed face milling, the insert removes extremely high chip volumes at rates far above those with traditional face mills. The insert’s plunge milling capabilities provide a highly efficient means of removing large amounts of metal in the axial direction, such as when milling deep cavities or externally along deep shoulders.
