Trepan on a CNC Mill

THINBIT, manufactured by Kaiser Tool Company, offers its MILL A GROOVE line, a new system designed to trepan on a CNC mill.

Advantages of using MILL A GROOVE are: better sealing surfaces due to improved surface finish; groove diameters are concentric to spindle rotation, not table movement; elimination of secondary lathe operations for face grooving; lower cost per groove; increased strength due to greater cross-sectional area; and custom inserts can be made to match the groove form.

The MILL A GROOVE insert does not rotate about its own center, so the groove can be symmetrical or asymmetrical. Step grooves, convex and concave radius grooves, chamfered edges, angles and special profiles can be made with a single insert.

When machining in 6061 aluminum, the MILL A GROOVE system cuts a groove .125" wide x .200" deep x 4.98" diameter in 18 seconds vs. 2.75 minutes with an 1/8" end mill. This is a cycle time reduction of 90%.

The MILL A GROOVE toolholders are designed to work in combination with boring heads and are available in common sizes with straight and 90° orientations.

Inserts for the MILL A GROOVE system are available from .004" through .150" in .001" increments. Major diameters start at .300". Inserts are available in sub-micron grain carbide grades for ferrous and non-ferrous materials and HSS for composites and plastics. Inserts can be coated with TiN, TiCN, TiAIN or diamond film coatings. PCD and CBN tipping options for improved performance in hard or abrasive materials.

These tools, along with the entire THINBIT line of cutting tools, will be on display.
