LACH DIAMOND says its solution to combine the »Cool Injection« process, during which the cooling jet is guided by a PCD surface, and the chip controller »Plus« into one single tool proved to be ideal for manufacturing. Now it is possible to work with extremely high cutting speeds and feeds required for HSC machining.
»Cool Injection-Plus« monobloc milling cutters can be manufactured with the highest possible number of PCD cutting edges because chips produced during machining are immediately diverted away from the work area. Both workpiece and cutting edge benefit from this procedure. Due to the fact that chips don’t need to be “cut” multiple times, optimal surface quality, precision as well as maximized tool life of the PCD milling cutter are the results.
Overall, the newly developed PCD monobloc milling cutter »Cool Injection-Plus« already achieved a reduction of cycle times in the automotive industry, for example in the production of engines and gearbox housings, of more than 50 percent.
»Cool Injection-Plus« PCD milling cutters will be delivered ready for use – no time intensive adjustments are necessary at all – and can be immediately put onto the machine.
LACH DIAMOND »Cool Injection-Plus« monobloc milling cutters feature a high number of teeth for maximum performance in aluminum machining, particularly in the automotive industry, and are manufactured with diameters up to 100 mm.
The new PCD cartridge milling cutter »dia-blue-power« is available for diameters from 125 to 450 mm.

- gang cutting ( milling)
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.
- polycrystalline diamond ( PCD)
polycrystalline diamond ( PCD)
Cutting tool material consisting of natural or synthetic diamond crystals bonded together under high pressure at elevated temperatures. PCD is available as a tip brazed to a carbide insert carrier. Used for machining nonferrous alloys and nonmetallic materials at high cutting speeds.
