To machine the deep internal chambers typically up to 150mm, long, slender tools are required. The challenges are tendency to vibration and removal of the chips from the groove. Turning one of the most challenging features into a secure process is achieved by:
The most productive and secure method for roughing is with direct grooving. To remove the chips from the chamber without jamming the WCMX GM insert splits the chip into three separate segments
Blades longer than 4x width of the blade are designed with a patented dampening device. This allows depth of cut to be 4 times greater than without dampening.
Oval serration blade system for best stability and accessibility. The 100mm high blade allows for best coolant delivery to assist in chip removal
Once the bulk of material has been removed the round carbide insert together with HPC profile turns to finished shape with dedicated geometry SM
