Press Release Summary:
To cope with impact forces and heat generated when roughing, 5505VX twin edge, indexable carbide insert tools have variable edge condition and feature 0.05 mm tolerance on rotation of tool axis. Helical ground form permits elevated spindle speeds and feed rates. Grade choices include SC3025 for machining cast and nodular irons, and X400 for cutting hardened steels from 52-56 HRC. Tools are offered in inch and metric diameters, with Weldon or Morse taper shanks.

Stellram's New 5505VX Milling Tools Rough Hard Materials
La Vergne, TN- Stellram introduces a new series of milling tools and grade combinations designed for roughing complex profiles in cast iron, steels, and hardened tool steels to 56 HRC.
Designated the 5505VX, the twin edge, indexable carbide insert tools are also capable of semi-finishing passes owing to their rigidity and accuracy of assembly. Tolerance on the rotation of the tool axis is just 0.05 mm.
To cope with the high impact forces and heat generated when roughing hard materials, the inserts are extra-thick and have a variable edge condition, with heavy preparation around the radius where impacts are at a maximum. The helical ground form allows elevated spindle speeds and feed rates to be used, promoting short cycle times and high productivity.
Inserts are offered in two grade choices: SC3025 for machining cast and nodular irons; and X400 (patent pending) which is a new carbide for cutting hardened (52HRC - 56HRC) steels.
Tools are available in a range of inch and metric diameters, with Weldon or Morse taper shanks.
The manufacturer also provides software to recommend cutting conditions and to calculate power, torque, and force requirements for a wide range of materials.
