Valenite Introduces New M750 Milling System for High Production Machining of Cast and Malleable Irons
High-efficiency cutter designs combined with advanced silicon nitride ceramic and coated carbide grades provide a powerful and high-production milling system for gray cast irons, ductile cast iron, malleable irons and compacted-graphite cast irons.
Valenite continues to develop new milling products targeted to improve the machinability of iron and steel components. Most recently, the new Valenite M750 Milling System was introduced to improve milling capability on the types of malleable and cast iron components typically used by the automotive, truck and heavy equipment industries.
The M750 System offers two milling cutter bodies in six different diameter sizes for 45° lead angle roughing and 30° lead angle roughing, roughing/finishing, fine finishing, high-feed finishing, and high-speed finishing. Diameter sizes range from 3.94 to 12.40-inches. Number of inserts per cutter vary from 10 to 46, depending on the design. Axial adjustment anvils on the cutter bodies allow for easy, quick and accurate set-up for wiper style inserts. The variety of milling cutter designs permits the user to select the desired cutter performance based on productivity requirements, table feeds, need for higher speeds, tool life and set up time.
There are eight different double-sided hexagonal insert styles available in six different roughing and wiper top form geometries. These designs accommodate the heavy roughing, general purpose roughing, light duty roughing and finishing requirements of iron materials. The hexagonal insert design allows up to 12 indexes per insert.
Eight milling grades are available for roughing and finishing operations. These include: SM 403, SM 307 and SM 422 MTCVD TiN/TiCN/Al2O3 coated carbide; VC 918 PVD TiAlN coated carbide; THM uncoated carbide; Q6 hot pressed silicon nitride, and Q60 and Q65 microwave sintered silicon nitride.
Valenite is one of the largest manufacturers of industrial cutting tools in the world. Headquartered in Madison Heights, Michigan, Valenite has manufacturing, sales and service operations on five continents. Valenite offers a complete line of standard and special indexable-insert turning, threading, grooving, boring, milling and drilling products to a variety of industries.
