Multi-V

October 01,2011

If you have a complex part with multiple operations and limited tool holders, The Magafor MULTI-V from Hassay Savage Co. may just be your answer. Made from K-15 Micro Grain Carbide, these tools can center-spot, drill, chamfer, direct chamfer, v-groove, interpolation mill, contour side mill, longitudinal chamfer side and edge and engrave all in one tool. The MULTI-V provides reduction in set up time with outstanding surface finishes.

The 30 degree spiral flutes provide improved chip removal and the micro grain carbide provides wear resistance and rigidity. Sizes range from .020" to .787" and are all individually packaged in stock ready to ship.

Related Glossary Terms

  • flutes

    flutes

    Grooves and spaces in the body of a tool that permit chip removal from, and cutting-fluid application to, the point of cut.

  • interpolation

    interpolation

    Process of generating a sufficient number of positioning commands for the servomotors driving the machine tool so the path of the tool closely approximates the ideal path. See CNC, computer numerical control; NC, numerical control.

  • milling machine ( mill)

    milling machine ( mill)

    Runs endmills and arbor-mounted milling cutters. Features include a head with a spindle that drives the cutters; a column, knee and table that provide motion in the three Cartesian axes; and a base that supports the components and houses the cutting-fluid pump and reservoir. The work is mounted on the table and fed into the rotating cutter or endmill to accomplish the milling steps; vertical milling machines also feed endmills into the work by means of a spindle-mounted quill. Models range from small manual machines to big bed-type and duplex mills. All take one of three basic forms: vertical, horizontal or convertible horizontal/vertical. Vertical machines may be knee-type (the table is mounted on a knee that can be elevated) or bed-type (the table is securely supported and only moves horizontally). In general, horizontal machines are bigger and more powerful, while vertical machines are lighter but more versatile and easier to set up and operate.

  • wear resistance

    wear resistance

    Ability of the tool to withstand stresses that cause it to wear during cutting; an attribute linked to alloy composition, base material, thermal conditions, type of tooling and operation and other variables.
