gang cutting ( milling)
Machining with several cutters mounted on a single arbor, generally for simultaneous cutting.
Machining operation in which metal or other material is removed by applying power to a rotating cutter. In vertical milling, the cutting tool is mounted vertically on the spindle. In horizontal milling, the cutting tool is mounted horizontally, either directly on the spindle or on an arbor. Horizontal milling is further broken down into conventional milling, where the cutter rotates opposite the direction of feed, or “up” into the workpiece; and climb milling, where the cutter rotates in the direction of feed, or “down” into the workpiece. Milling operations include plane or surface milling, endmilling, facemilling, angle milling, form milling and profiling.
- milling cutter
Loosely, any milling tool. Horizontal cutters take the form of plain milling cutters, plain spiral-tooth cutters, helical cutters, side-milling cutters, staggered-tooth side-milling cutters, facemilling cutters, angular cutters, double-angle cutters, convex and concave form-milling cutters, straddle-sprocket cutters, spur-gear cutters, corner-rounding cutters and slitting saws. Vertical cutters use shank-mounted cutting tools, including endmills, T-slot cutters, Woodruff keyseat cutters and dovetail cutters; these may also be used on horizontal mills. See milling.
1. On a saw blade, the number of teeth per inch. 2. In threading, the number of threads per inch.
DoTriple-Mill is Tungaloy’s face milling cutter featuring a dovetail clamping system that dramatically reduces insert lift up and excessive shear force imposed on the screws during heavy duty milling. Three types of inserts fit in the same cutter body, making it the perfect cutter when various materials have to be machined and machine tool settings are limited. A bore type cutter body is available in coarse and close pitch designs, and the standard tool diameter ranges from 2.00" to 6.00" (and in metric sizes 50 to 160 mm). DoTriple-Mill, with a rich line up of inserts, responds to many different types of customer needs.
