This means a pre-defined approach angle with a unique chip breaker and corner radius," says Ceratizit turning product manager Dirk Martin.
Providing chatter-free operation, the ESCO Mongoose MILLHOG(R) utilizes the EscoLock(TM) rigid blade lock system and T-15 tool steel TiN coated cutter blades with a radical chip breaker that directs the chip away from the tube and minimizes heat generation.
Lee, "Efficient chip breaker design by predicting the chip breaking performance," International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, vol.
(18) simulated the process of the chip breaking and the change of the forces acting at the chip Breaker edge of the arbitrary rake face geometry tool under various cutting conditions using finite element modelling and simulation.
"We can run high feeds with this type of tool in combination with the MF5 chip breaker geometry, provided that the cutting depth does not exceed 2.7mm.
This was caused by changes in the physical properties of the chip (tendency of forming fiber conglomerates or "welding") and the presence of the chip breaker (a very common accessory in the feeding systems of mini gang sash saws).
In the world of cutting tool inserts, the only real differences between the various brands are the grade and chip breaker. This means a machinist can purchase a CNMG-432 style insert from any supplier and apply the tool with confidence.
Thanks to its basket arch cutting edges, open chip breaker groove behind the cutting edge, and reinforced chip breaker blades it can handle smooth and interrupted cuts.
The machine features play-free linear guides for a smooth carriage movement, solid-cast iron construction, solid steel crank arms, a precision stop/start feed system, adjustable chip breaker and an automatic central Lubrication system.
Incorporating a radical chip breaker to direct the chip away from the tube surface and dissipate heat, the cutter blades can be supplied in styles to match many angles of end prep.
The TNMG 332 insert with PF chip breaker geometry (figure 1) were made available in STL form, generated from CATIA V5R8 system (Patrascu, 2007).
