New Square Shoulder Milling Cutters Maximize Versatility
(Plantsville, CT --- April 2003) Fansteel VR/Wesson offers a new line of high sheer, square shoulder milling cutters, which produce a smoother finish with greater machining efficiencies. The tools cut to a true 90-degree shoulder, and hold tight axial and radial tolerances. Tool bodies have through coolant holes for optimized chip evacuation. Insert geometries for steel and aluminum machining maximizes metal removal rates. Precision ground inserts allow for less radial and axial run-out, and ground wiper flats provide excellent work piece finish and longer tool life.
Positive axial and radial rakes provide maximum metal removal per horsepower, making these tools excellent for use in lighter duty machines. The Fansteel square shoulder milling cutters are appropriate for a wide variety of tooling operations including slotting, face milling, shoulder milling and helical interpolation. A full range of cutter bodies allow for quick delivery of tooling for almost any machining operation. The tools are especially suitable for the job shop environment, and wherever a number of different work pieces are run.
Fansteel VRJWesson square shoulder line includes a full range of cutter bodies and inserts in a wide range of coating and grades for different work piece materials. End mill tools are available in diameters ranging from 1/2" to 2", and in standard and extended length versions. Shell mill tools range from 1 1/2" to 6" diameters. Inserts are available in industry standard sizes.
VR/Wesson group produces a wide variety of cutting tools and tool holding devices. In addition to the Plantsville operation's capabilities for the supply of standard cutting tool products, it enjoys the reputation as the supplier of choice for the design and manufacture of job-specific tungsten carbide inserts and related holders.
