Kyocera adds a new finishing tool to its innovative machining products
The new MFF milling cutter puts the finishing touch on the machining process. The tool stands out owing to its unique insert combination of semi-finishing and finishing inserts.
- Industrial Tools
Kyoto/London - The MFF milling cutter augments the industrial tools range offered by the Japanese technology company Kyocera in the field of highly productive finishing processes. The cutter is ideally suitable for use with steel, stainless steel and cast iron. It is available on the market from September 2020.
Focusing on productivity for large components
Kyocera’s new and extremely robust cutter stands out due to its excellent efficiency. The combination of semi-finishing and finishing inserts contributes to this efficiency, which has the effect of increasing productivity and demonstrable improvements in quality. Years’ worth of know-how in developing and manufacturing machining tools has resulted in an innovative pressing method that yields robust inserts. These wiper inserts are especially suited to very high feed rates and achieve outstanding surface qualities. The strengths of the MFF milling cutter come into their own for large components, such as construction parts made of construction steel, carbon steel or cast iron (grey & ductile iron). The robust cutter can even be used for hardened steel (up to 60 HRC) and stainless steel.
The supreme discipline of finishing
The finishing process is very demanding and time-consuming because the finished parts must meet very high-quality standards, for example with regard to surface roughness and flatness. The MFF milling cutter can achieve a high-quality finish as well as increase productivity thanks to its wiper geometry. At the same time, typical problems such as vibrations or scratches are avoided, principally through a combination of a sharp blade and the patented Kyocera Cermet technology intended for use as substrate for inserts.
Preset cartridge height in the MFF for improved user-friendliness
The new design of the milling body allows the plates to be changed reliably. More time is saved thanks to the preset cartridge height of the MFF milling cutter. It is no longer necessary to readjust after changing a plate. The resulting precisely adjustable cutting edge height improves the handling and facilitates more reliable processes.
