ATI Stellram debuts 7792VXE16 high-feed cutters
ATI Stellram introduced its 7792VXE16 high-speed shell mill cutter.
ATI Stellram says its 7792VXE16 high-feed shell mill cutter yields the highest levels of material-removal rates in high-performance alloys, such as nickel-based alloys, cobalt-based alloys and titanium-based alloys. The tools direct cutting forces axially into the spindle, reducing spindle wear and improving machining stability.
These facemills take repeated shallow DOC and operate at very high feed rates. High feed rates increase the mrr up to five times greater than conventional cutters, reducing component costs, according to Stellram. In addition to high-feed facemilling, the 7792VXE16 is capable of pocketing, slotting and plunging.
Inserts for the 7792VXE16 cutters feature four cutting edges for improved tool economy. Several insert grades are available:
