Mikron Tool SA Agno achieved a quantum leap in milling of stainless steel, titanium, chrome-cobalt alloys as well as the so called Super alloys. The newly conceived small milling cutter improved by large margins the hitherto possible results in all aspects.
Hence, new benchmarks apply immediately for cutting speeds, feeds, performance, tool life und surface quality. Hard to believe that these results are most dominant with the so called hard-to-machine materials.
Massive cooling effect
Mikron’s microcutter has three to four internal coolant channels which go through the shaft and bring such coolant along the diameter to the cutting edges. The result is a targeted and massive cooling effect where it’s needed: at the cutting edges and this in every machining position. Simultaneously chips are continuously flushed away. In relation to the small diameters of the milling cutters the cooling channels are rather large. The large volume of coolant created is highly efficient; the friction heat is substantially absorbed and removed by the coolant.
New on every aspect
The Mikron crazy mills involve a newly developed micro granulate carbide, a combination of different geometric characteristics that leads to the targeted results. A robust cutting body, a radial relief and a very specific cutting edge preparation afford a very high cutting edge quality and stability and also an innovative and very specific coating
Markus Schnyder, the responsible for Mikron Tool International points out, that one does not have to be a calculus genius to find out, that with up to five times faster cutting speed and a comparable feed the efficiency of the milling cutter is improved by a factor of 10 to 20! With this it is interesting that expressly the “difficult” materials are the ones where the difference regarding performance is most astounding. The cherry on the cake is, according to Mikron Tool, the surface quality. Even though the cut goes into solid material, the CrazyMill Cool boasts Rz values which are 2 to 3 times better, than what can be expected from conventional cutters.
