Self-Centering Vise allows 5-sided machining with one setup.

May 22, 2013

With adjustable center jaws, Allmatic CENTRO Gripp Vise allows workpiece to be held during complete machining process. Fully enclosed high-pressure spindle creates clamping force up to 8,992 lb and requires minimal maintenance. Jaw width is 5 in. with clamping ranges from 0.394–11.811 in. Made of cast iron GGG-60, vise includes precision aligning slots and positioning hole on bottom, as well as pre-machined holes in shoulders for mounting to table. Large lateral outlets facilitate chip removal. Read More

Cutters and Inserts feature fine pitch for smooth cutting.

February 11, 2013

Machined from double-hardened tool steel, 12 mm Cutter Bodies and Inserts are designed with fine pitch for accelerated feed rates and smooth cutting action that minimizes noise and pressure. End Mills come in cutting diameters from 0.625–1.500 in., while Shell mills, with varying pitch options, cut from 1.5–4 in. Helical roughing end mills are available in 1.0 and 1.25 in. diameters, and Utility cutters come in .75, 2, and 3 in. diameters. Maximum depth of cut for 12 mm inserts is 0.430 in. Read More

Mid-Feed Cutters feature inscribed circle inserts.

February 29, 2012

Part of RHINO-FEED(TM) line, Mid-Feed Cutters are optimized for cuts of 1-3 in. diameter and max depth of .045 in., with 10 mm inscribed circle inserts featuring 4 usable edges. End mills, shell mills, and modular heads are available with 2, 3, 5, or 6 flutes. Mid-Feed cutters are suited for light-duty machines running at moderate FPT. RHINO-FEED line adjusts feed rates to compensate for chip thinning that occurs during high-feed milling when extreme lead angle is utilized. Read More

Cutters and Inserts hasten heavy-duty application feed rates.

July 13, 2011

Optimized for cuts of 1.250-4.000 in. dia, RHINO-FEED(TM) Heavy-Feed cutters and inserts allow for accelerated feed rates in moderate- to heavy-DOC and -FPT applications. Heavy-Feed 12 mm IC (inscribed circle) inserts have 4 usable edges and strong cross-section. End mills and shell mills feature top clamping strength suitable for heavier DOC (up to .060 in.) and larger machines, such as 50-taper and box ways. Read More

High-Feed Inserts are optimized for strength, tool life.

December 1, 2010

Suitable for 1¼ in. dia and above, RHINO-CARB(TM) HFDEH inserts fit current Toroid cutter bodies, are CNC-pressed, and enable aggressive metal cutting. Thickness lends to strength, while design maximizes metal removal rates and heat-absorption. High-positive cutting edge suits stainless steels, high-temperature alloys, and gummy materials, and stronger edge optimizes chiploads, shock absorption, and tool life. Also, positive top rake reduces cutting forces and torque. Read More

Helical Edge Ball Nose Inserts are offered in metric sizes.

September 30, 2010

HBN Ball Nose inserts with helical cutting edge are available in metric sizes ranging from 10-32 mm in diameter. Helical cutting edge optimizes performance in ball nose finishing applications, offering smooth cutting action, reduced chatter, and providing clean surface finish. Capable of heavy cutting with low stress on work materials, helical cutting edge provides long tool life that results from reduced tool pressure and heat generation. Read More

Wear Resistant Inserts are suited for milling tool steels.

June 30, 2010

Featuring micro-grain structure with medium cobalt content, DMK25 insert substrate provides edge strength and wear resistance, while maintaining toughness. It is formulated for applications involving tool steels, austenitic stainless steels, and most high-temperature alloys. Product is available in D (dished) and N (neutral) RHINO-CARB(TM) CNC-pressed insert geometries and in DMK25-GLH (Premium AlTiN), DMK257 (basic AlTiN), DMK25-HP (Premium AlCrN), and DMK253 (TiCN) coatings.
