MAG to Showcase Newest "CYCLO" Technology for Machining Titanium, Aluminum and Composite Aerospace Components

CYCLO CUT cutting tools and CYCLO COOL metalworking fluids are changing the way aircraft OEM's and sub-contractors are processing commercial and military aircraft components reaching new highs in metal removal rates, tool life and lowering overall fluids usage.

MAG offers a wide range of CYCLO CUT cutting tools and CYCLO COOL metalworking fluids designed and blended for all aspects of aerospace machining. CYCLO CUT tools and CYCLO COOL fluids have proven capability to increase material removal rates in titanium aerostructures by as much as 300 percent - resulting in faster cycle times, 33 percent cost-per-part reductions and increased tool life. MAG's WYLCUT-SWIFT brand of wobble broaches and insert removal tooling solutions are utilized in the production and refurbishment of the thin wall insert system for the manufacture and maintenance of aeroengines and turbines.

With a portfolio of more than 14,000 unique tool types, CYCLO CUT products include indexable milling tools, rotary cutting tools and tool holders for roughing, semi-finishing and finishing operations across titanium, aluminum and composite applications in the aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment, medical, woodworking, circuit board fabrication and general machining industries. CYCLO CUT cutting tools include a unique range of solid carbide, brazed carbide, polycrystalline diamond and high-speed steel end mills, routers, standard drills, micro and circuit board drills, reamers, keyseat cutters, plunge and chamfer mills, countersinks, saws and files.

CYCLO CUT indexable milling tools are specially designed for cutting titanium and capable of removal rates up to 11 in3/min. CYCLO CUT indexable tools include end mills from 16 mm (.625 in) to 76 mm (3 in) diameter, facemills from 31.75 mm (1.25 in) to 508 mm (20 in) diameter, and spiral flute mills for high-speed cutting from 25 mm (1 in) to 127 mm (5 in) diameter with cutting speeds up to 16,400 sfm. MAG recently launched a new CYCLO CUT range of cast iron and steel turning grades and a complete portfolio of precision threading and die and mold insert grades for hardened materials.

All CYCLO CUT cutting tools are available with a variety of PVD coatings including TiN, TiCN, TiAIN and diamond coatings, as well as MAG proprietary coatings for special applications. MAG also offers a complete range of CYCLO CUT tool holders including CAT (30, 40, 50, 60), HSK (63, 100, 125) and BT, along with collet chucks, end mill holders, boring bars, extended reach and shrink fit holders, and shell mill arbors.

CYCLO COOL premium metalworking fluids cover a diverse range of synthetic, semi-synthetic, heavy-duty water soluble and straight oils, advance technology fluids and lubricants, along with corrosion inhibitors and minimum quantity lubricants. MAG offers more than 50 unique blends and formulations for all manufacturing industries and applications, including machining high-strength steel, aerospace titanium, aluminum and other exotic metals. CYCLO COOL advanced technology fluids are formulated for high heat and difficult machining applications. This line of product contains a patented blend of lubricants that bridges the gap between conventional water soluble and straight oils. CYCLO COOL specialty fluid products offer many metalworking process advantages including low foaming at high pressures (greater than 2000 PSI's), reduced cycle time, longer wheel life, decreased machine horsepower and improved part finish. MAG's CYCLO COOL technical services and support network maintains grinding and machining fluids for increased productivity.

MAG is also the OEM of industry leading tooling brands DRILLUNIT, DAVIS and ERIX Backspotfacing and Chamfering cutting tools and offers Special Purpose Machine solutions including double end, shuttle, rotary, trunnion and stationary machines all with robotic load and unload capabilities for low to high volume material removal applications.
