New cutting insert geometry for hard turning

SPK® Fräskatalog

The new cutting insert geometry for hard turning provides numerous advantages. Using the new geometry, the cutting forces are reduced and ensure high process reliability and highest cutting data, also when machining less stable workpieces. Deflection of the tool and vibration is reduced. Achievable surface quality will increase, also for workpieces with poorer mechanical stability. Stable workpieces can be machined at significantly increased cutting data.

New Milling Tool Systems

SPK INDICUT and SPK DUROCUT

The new milling tool system works with round cutting inserts. Milling tools and cutting inserts are equipped with an indexation system. The peripheral cutting edge is therefore clearly divided in eight cutting segments.

SPK INDICUT

The INDICUT Series works with ceramic cutting inserts. 16 cutting edges per insert are available for roughing and semi finishing of GJL (GG) and GJS (GGG) workpieces.

SPK DUROCUT

The DUROCUT Series works with CBN cutting inserts and enables face milling of hardened workpieces with 8 cutting edges per insert.

SPK HEXACUT

The HEXACUT milling system is equipped with positive cutting inserts with six cutting edges per insert. The positive rake angle ensures lower passive forces and easier cutting process. Roughing and semi finishing of thin-walled workpieces or bridges is possible with high depth of cut.

SPK Whitepaper: “Milling Cast Iron Materials with Ceramic, PcBN and Cermet Cutting Materials”

SPK® Whitepaper „Fräsen von Gusseisenwerkstoffen mit Keramik, PcBN und Cermet Schneidstoffen“

Milling with cutting materials made of ceramic, PcBN and cermets has been an accepted machining technology for years. Modern ceramic cutting materials and HPC insert milling cutters are now able to offer maximum performance and process reliability in a single, convenient package. However, practical use shows that milling with carbide inserts remains the primary field of application and is often the reason why many users forgo essential technical and economic benefits in spite of all these systems have to offer. The SPK Whitepaper “Milling Cast Iron Materials with Ceramic, PcBN and Cermet Cutting Materials” deals with this topic and details the best methods of face milling cast iron components together with the right milling body using ceramic, PcBN and cermet inserts. It covers subjects such as milling different cast iron materials (CGI, ADI, etc.), cutting parameters for ceramic cutting materials, PcBN and cermets and the milling application method in depth.

The SPK Whitepaper “Milling Cast Iron Materials with Ceramic, PcBN and Cermet Cutting Materials” is available in digital format as a PDF file for downloading.
