Small Cutting Tools for Stainless Materials

(top) Due to an efficient internal cooling, one step is enough (no pecking) for drilling up to 20 x d with this new drill available in a diameter range from 1 to 6 mm.

(bottom left) Four teeth and coolant ducts integrated in the shank guarantee an enhanced surface quality.

(bottom right) Pocket milling gets easy with the new plunge and slot end mill, due to vertical entering in the workpiece up to a milling depth of 1 x d.

Swiss cutting tool manufacturer Mikron Tool offers new small cutting tools for stainless materials.

CrazyDrill Cool SST-Inox, available from 1-6 mm (.039" to .236"), is especially suitable to drill without pecking. One feed stroke is necessary to reach the full depth of 20 x d. This is made possible by the tool integrated helicoidally, drop shaped coolant ducts, designed to deliver a massive and constant coolant flow. This prevents overheating of the cutting edges right from the beginning. Combined with the right geometry, this cooling method facilitates easier chip breaking, which in turn helps to flush them out of the flutes. These factors afford machining with higher cutting parameters (cutting speed and feed). Furthermore, a new geometry with a chip-breaking effect in the front section of the flutes and an open flute profile in the back provides enhanced evacuation of the micro-chips.

With CrazyMill Cool Ball Z4, the range of CrazyMill Cool milling cutters is being expanded with a four blade VHM finishing mill in the range of 1-8 mm (.039" to .315") for depths up to 5 x d. Coolant ducts integrated in the shaft provide a massive flow of coolant. This prevents overheating of the cutting edges and facilitates easy flushing of chips from the machining area. A surface finish close to grinding quality is thus achieved.

CrazyMill Cool P&S is a new Plunge Mill in diameters from 1-6 mm for milling depths of 2.5 x d. Its strength: plunging perpendicularly 1 x d into the material (drilling) and then progressing laterally to machine grooves and pockets. Hence it can do milling operations in smallest areas. The tool collects chips while drilling in its expanded chip collection section in the head and evacuates them through the large flutes. Stable and robust cutting edges into the center of the tool prevent vibrations. Coolant ducts integrated into the shaft supply a constant and substantial flow of coolant. This prevents overheating of the cutting edges, resulting in expanded tool life and high chip removal rates.
