What Every Machine Shop Needs To Know About 3‐D Milling Tools


Thanks to the greater rigidity and higher spindle speeds of today's machine tools, there are many applications where 3-D profile milling tools are a perfect fit. Thousands of machine shops, foundries, and production operations are using these tools daily to increase productivity and reduce waste. In  many  applications,  solid  carbide  tools  have  been replaced  by steel  tool  bodies  with  replaceable  carbide inserts. This key development has lowered overall tooling costs. But it  presents a design challenge for the manufacturer. Now  you  have  a  multi-part  system  of tool body, insert, and screw  that needs  to come  together as accurately and remain as rigid as the solid tool it replaces.  Read the full article, click here!
