Sumitomo's New Metal Slash Mill Offers Exceptionally High Feed Rates And Unparalleled Productivity
Mount Prospect, IL - (August 24, 2006) Boasting feed rates of up to 0.078" IPT, the new Metal Slash Mill from Sumitomo offers high productivity milling.
The unique design of this milling cutter directs cutting forces into the machine spindle to achieve high feed rates even in low rigidity conditions.
A four-corner insert (screw on assembly) design yields low tooling costs per part.
Sumitomo customers are already experiencing the benefits. "With the Sumitomo Slash Mill we realized incredible cycle time reductions by applying this high feed mill to our current manufacturing processes. Some of our cycle times were reduced by a matter of hours, actually seeing our long, complex parts made in half the time! With the unique design of this tool and it's reliable, longer insert life, it's a win-win for our shop. We can increase machine capacity without relying only on added operators or added hours, " stated Brian Shoning, machining center groupleader, Vermeer Mfg. Co.
U.S. stock standard Metal Slash Mill bodies are available in 2.000" - 4.000" diameters.
The Metal Slash Mill is available with CS3000, a CVD coated grade for high-speed milling of carbon steels and stainless steels, the ACZ310 PVD coated grade for general purpose milling of die steels and cast irons, and the ACZ330 PVD coated grade for general purpose milling of steels and stainless steels.
