Ballplus multifunction milling system is a ballnose family comprised of cylindrical and conical shank options and five various milling inserts. Each shank is said to have the ability of carrying different milling inserts. According to the company, clamping and indexing of the milling heads can be done while the tool remains clamped on the machine. Therefore, no setup time is necessary after indexing. These milling cutters may be used in high feeds and large depths of cut. The system’s inserts have two cutting edges with a ground chipformer for high feed and low cutting forces. The tool family offers five of these insert geometries, which includes: the HBR which is used for profiling, up and down ramping, steep profiles and undercutting. Its accuracy is said to be within 0.0004", and has a 220-degree spherical cutting profile for roughing or finishing applications; the HBF may be used for high-quality finishing applications and is said to have accuracy within 0.0002". With a 220-degree spherical cutting profile, it is used for profiling, up and down ramping, steep profiles and undercutting; the HCR is a ballnose with an extended flute profile used for cavity profiling and shouldering. The company says it can be used for roughing and finishing due to its accuracy of 0.0004"; the HCD has a 90-degree v-shaped insert for chamfering and countersinking applications; the HCC is a square insert for shouldering, slotting, drilling and countersinking applications. Its accuracy is said to be within 0.0004", and can be used for roughing and semi-finishing applications; and the HTR has accuracy within 0.0004" and has a toroidal insert with a variety of corner radii. It can be used for machining cavity fillets and pockets and for machining alongside steep walls. Also, the company says the milling system comes with three shank types: the cylindrical shank ('A' type) is used for general applications; the 85-degree conical shank ('B' type) is used for roughing and when high stability is required; and the 89-degree conical shank ('D' type) is used for deep cavities and alongside steep walls.
